Quantum of Solace star Gemma Arterton was barely out of drama school when she found herself playing a Bond girl.

In the film the actress plays fiesty Agent Fields – an MI6 spy.

Being part of the 22nd movie in the massive decade spanning James Bond franchise is a dream come true for the 22 year old from Kent.

“It’s a brilliant job. Each time you step on set you’re like ‘Oh, yeah, this is a huge deal.’ But I just kept on thinking ‘This is just another film,’ which helped in a way.”

To play a Bond girl she says: “You’ve got to be funny, you’ve got to play someone at their own game, and have a glint in your eye – that’s the main thing.”

Quantum of Solace begins right after Casino Royale ended, with Bond, played by British actor Daniel Craig, mourning his lover Vesper Lynd, who died before explaining why she double-crossed him by giving his multi million-pound winnings to the shadowy villain Mr White.

Quantum of Solace is non-stop action with car chases and fight scenes.
