AOL.CO.UK – Actors Michael Fassbender, Gemma Arterton and Shia Labeouf and director Ken Loach have been tipped for prizes at this year’s British Independent Film Awards (Bifa).

[…]

Now in its 18th year, the awards celebrate the most innovative and creative productions by film makers in the UK, often confronting key contemporary socio-political issues.

Bifa founder, Canadian-born Elliot Grove, who also founded the Raindance Film Festival, said: “British film can’t be put in a box.

The reason we started Bifa almost 20 years ago was to shine a spotlight on British talent. Film is one of the main exports from this small, damp and dirty island.

Britain is one of the most diverse countries ethnically and culturally in the world, and just because you are in Britain making a film makes it, whatever it is, British.”

[…]

In the lead-up to the announcement of the winners on Sunday December 4, the full list of nominations include…

For best supporting actress: Avin Manshadi (Under The Shadow), Gemma Arterton (The Girl With All The Gifts), Naomie Harris (Our Kind Of Traitor), Shana Swash (My Feral Heart), and Terry Pheto (A United Kingdom). (source)

THE DAILY MAIL – Gemma Arterton was on the move.

Her new picture, The Escape, was shooting on location in London, and I was tagging along for a day of guerrilla film-making.

Led by producer Guy Heeley, the leading lady strode through the streets of London: from Fitzrovia, then Bloomsbury, across the Marylebone Road and finally into King’s Cross station, where cast and crew stopped for a lunch of salad and stew.

Then it was off again, to a park where, I’m sorry to relate, a lot of dog owners had clearly not been picking up after their mutts.

Gemma and director Dominic Savage came up with the idea of making a film about the ‘taboo’ topic of mums who leave their kids.

Arterton described her character Tara — a mother of two who is married to a businessman called Mark, played by her pal Dominic Cooper — as a ‘creative person’.

‘But she’s got absolutely no outlet for her creativity — and what that means is that Tara feels trapped — though she’s not.’

The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art-trained actress (making her debut as a producer on the film) and director Savage came up with an improvised blueprint of a script, which meant that the movie often veered off in ‘varied and interesting directions’.

‘This is about a woman who walks out on her family — which isn’t usually the term that’s used. Usually the word is ‘abandoned’,’ she told me, pointing out that when a father leaves, ‘he walks out’.

‘Abandoned by my mother’ is such a strong term — and I think it’s because of this idea of ‘How could they possibly do that?’ Because women should feel: that’s why we exist. And I don’t think that’s the case.’ The last film I can think of that tackled this subject was Kramer vs. Kramer.

Gemma said filming had been intense, but both she and leading man Cooper had been exhilarated by it. ‘It makes you think of your own life,’ she said.

‘I’ve always wanted to have children,’ she reflected. But since working on The Escape, she’s been thinking: ‘Oh my God . . . do I?’

Now that she has finished filming, Gemma has moved onto rehearsals for G.B. Shaw’s Saint Joan, for the Donmar Warehouse. (source)

Back on Friday, October 28th – Gemma attended the Press Night for “The Acedian Pirates” at Theatre 503 in London (England).

She kept it casual and simple, with minimal make up but looking beautiful like always. A leopard-print coat, striped sweater and loose fitting jeans, with a pair of comfortable black ballet pumps completing the look. Several photos from the event have been added to the gallery thanks to my friend Emily! Enjoy them :)

BELFAST TELEGRAPH – The British actress, who has made it on to countless most beautiful women lists, has had a varied career; treading the boards on stage as well as starring in both Hollywood and indie flicks.

Earlier this year (16), Gemma won praise after playing the lead role in play Nell Gwynn, and was nominated for a prestigious Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actress. Comparing the stage to the screen, the 30-year-old says the importance placed on looks varies enormously in the two mediums.

“Look, I trained for six years, I started out in the theatre where, if you’re good for the role, you get the part,” she began to Hello! magazine. “I don’t think I ever heard of anyone being hired because of their looks, which is very different from the movie industry. Some producers and directors care, some don’t. And I now choose to work with those who don’t. Frankly, I don’t give a s**t how I look. I don’t want my face or body considered in that way. I’m not a model, that’s not my job, so why would it ever be a consideration?”

As is normal with Gemma’s career, the brunette star has now flipped her attention back to film and television work. She has three new films due for imminent release, plus a further two in production and is also filming a TV version of Watership Down.

While she’s made it clear in the past that she didn’t enjoy her experience on huge blockbuster flicks, Gemma did like the adrenaline kick she got from doing her own stunts on movies like Bond film Quantum of Solace.

“I really loved doing stunts and getting the chance to do them at the beginning of my career was amazing because I loved gymnastics in school. I loved chucking myself around,” she grinned. (source)

Interview of some time ago, taken during this year’s TIFF! That Gemma and the cast of Their Finest attended to promote the movie. Enjoy!

VARIETY“Their Finest,” which screened at the Toronto Film Festival this year, follows a British film crew attempting to boost morale during World War II with a propaganda film after the Blitzkrieg.
