It was Bond girl Gemma Arterton who was both shaken and stirred when the wind got up as she was filming a crucial scene in Panama for the new 007 film Quantum Of Solace.

For Gemma, who plays alluring undercover operative Agent Fields, revealed rather more than she bargained for as she and 007 left a hotel in a hurry on the trail of a man Bond is chasing.

‘I had to wear a mac and boots with nothing underneath,’ she said, ‘and I had to be really careful because the mac kept blowing open.’

It was a problem 22-year-old Gemma had encountered before, at the premiere of her first major movie, the 2007 schoolgirl comedy St Trinian’s.

‘I was given a beautiful Louis Vuitton dress,’ she told Tatler magazine. ‘I didn’t know I’d put it on back to front until I was on the red carpet. I got out of the car and the wind blew, exposing my bum.

‘My publicist came over and said, ‘Gemma, I think you’ve got your dress on back to front.’

‘So I was running around the red carpet going, ‘Oh no! Oh no!’ She said, ‘Well, you’ve just got to style it up and say you put it on back to front for a reason.’

Luckily, the Press were more interested in Russell Brand, who was on the red carpet at the same time.’

Gemma – who can currently be seen playing Elizabeth Bennet in ITV1’s Lost In Austen – has several other sexy scenes in the film, including a bedroom encounter with 007 Daniel Craig.

But she said that auditioning opposite Craig was ‘probably the scariest day of my life’.

‘I said something really stupid to try to break the ice. I said, ‘I hope I don’t make you feel inadequate because I’m taller than you in heels.’

‘I was trying to be funny but it wasn’t funny at all. Then I thought, ‘Oh well, I’ve blown it’.’

Gemma, a welder’s daughter from Gravesend, Kent, is tipped to follow Keira Knightley’s success in Hollywood.

She plays the heroine in the new £50million Disney blockbuster Prince Of Persia.
