New Bond girl spills the beans on Quantum of Solace.
by Chris Tilly, IGN UK

UK, January 29, 2008 – Gemma Arterton has only been acting for six months, but the 22-year-old has already won plum parts in Brit flicks St. Trinian’s, 3 and Out and Guy Ritchie’s forthcoming RocknRolla. If that wasn’t enough, she’s also playing a Secret Service agent in new Bond film Quantum of Solace, and IGN interviewed her on set last week to discuss landing one of cinema’s most sought after roles.

You’ve been a Bond girl for a little while now — is it still exciting or is the novelty starting to wear off a bit?

Gemma Arterton: No, every day there’s something exciting that happens, like I just got asked to present at the BAFTAs, which I can’t do because I’m filming this, but little things like that. I’ve only just left drama school and have been working professionally for six months, so all of this is out of this world. It doesn’t feel real still. That’s why I wasn’t too nervous on the first day because I just felt like it was a game. The size of it hasn’t hit me yet, but I’m sure that it will.

New Bond girl Gemma Arterton has hinted the superspy will marry in new movie Quantum Of Solace.

The British actress, 22, confirmed she and Daniel Craig had been filming scenes for the next installment of the franchise in a honeymoon suite.

After realising she had revealed a crucial plot, the St Trinian’s star told a U.S. reporter, “I think I’ve said too much.”

It will be the second marriage for Bond – the spy married in the 1969 movie On Her Majesty’s Service.

They come from very different backgrounds. One is the daughter of a Gravesend welder while the other was brought up by a single mum in a bleak, impoverished Ukrainian backwater.

But Gemma Arterton and Olga Kurylenko have both been plucked from obscurity for roles in the new Bond film, Quantum of Solace.

Just nine months ago, Gemma, who is 22 this week, was working in a Covent Garden beauty shop.

“We had a Bond themed night a year ago and I had dress as a Bond girl and sell make-up,” says the actress who plays MI6 operative Agent Fields. “And now here I am, a real Bond girl!

I’ve made scans of a lesser seen spread featuring Gemma and her St Trinian’s co-stars. I believe this one of Gemma’s very first covers and she looks stunning – the photo of her alone is definitely one of my personal favorites.

Gemma Arterton, 21, is only six months out of drama school and is now playing Agent Fields, an MI6 field agent at the Bolivian consulate. She is possibly the youngest spy to ever appear in a Bond movie. “She doesn’t do anything too advanced, it’s not like she’s killing people,” she reveals. In response to the main question, she says: “Yes I do kiss Daniel Craig. The kiss has happened and yes [pause] it was quite incredible. It was all a bit of a daze. I felt such a giggly girl because he’s such a man.”

Arterton, who plays head girl Kelly in the current St Trinian’s movie, has been warned by another Bond girl to open her post with a letter-opener now that she has kissed Craig. “You get hate mail, apparently,” she confided.
