In just a few short years, she’s become one of Britain’s hottest young actresses. From parts in the Bond movie Quantum Of Solace to the blockbusting Clash Of The Titans and the British drama Tamara Drewe, Gemma Arterton has become a name on everyone’s lips.

Now the 25-year-old from Gravesend, Kent, lends her voice to the animated fantasy A Turtle’s Tale. Here, Gemma talks about her career and discusses what the future holds.

Did you identify with your character Shelley from A Turtle’s Tale?

Absolutely. If I was a turtle I’d be like her. When I filmed this I was doing a play so it was nice to do the complete opposite. Dominic Cooper, who does the voice of Sammy, is a friend of mine and we worked together on Tamara Drewe. He recommended me for the role. I was very grateful as I’ve always wanted to do an animation. For us it was just Dominic and Gemma swimming in the ocean.

Her latest role on the West End stage saw her dressed down and fresh faced.

But Gemma Arterton pulled out all the glamour stops following the last performance of The Master Builder in London last night.

The 24-year-old actress looked stunning in a pair of clinging leather trousers, a loose white shirt and bright red lipstick.

The play, which began last November, saw her star as central character Hilde Wangel alongside Stephen Dillane as Halvard Solness.

Gemma Arterton was seen leaving after the final performance of The Master Builder at the Almeida Theatre in London. And Hannah was lucky enough to meet her after the performance. :D

“I’ve always been an extrovert. I started as a singer in an indie all girl band when I was 14, then I started to play in comedies and musicals.”

Huge thanks to Nicole! :D

Gemma Arterton, 24 year old Bond girl and British rising star; most recently seen in blockbuster Tamara Drewe (in Italy out on the 5th of January), an adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s nineteenth century novel Far from the Madding Crowd; speaks to Swide about her love of Italian style and adopted nuances from her new Italian husband.

Swide: What projects are you currently working on Gemma?

Gemma: Currently I’m working on a play called “The Master Builder” by Ibsen. We’re about midway through the run and it’s playing at the Almeida Theatre in Islington, London.

Big thanks to Lorna, Mia, Karolina and Elmira!
