Gemma Arterton makes her West End stage debut early in the New Year, following a string of high-profile screen roles.

The RADA-trained actress has signed to appear opposite Tamsin Greig, Rupert Friend and Harry Lloyd in the savage Hollywood comedy The Little Dog Laughed, about how a closeted movie megastar finds a ‘wife’, and a boyfriend.

Gemma will play Ari, the spiky young woman who lives with a rent boy played by Mr Lloyd.

Ari has some great lines in the play, written by Douglas Carter Beane. When I saw the New York production a while back, this was the part I found under-cast. But Gemma has the acting chops to pull it off.

I saw her in a terrific British thriller The Disappearance Of Alice Creed at the Toronto International Film Festival and she was brilliant opposite Eddie Marsan and Martin Compston.

The movie’s at the London Film Festival on October 24; visit www.bfi.org.uk/lff for more details.

The Disappearance Of Alice Creed is just one of several films Gemma, 23, will be seen in over the next year. They include The Prince Of Persia: Sands Of Time, Clash Of The Titans, and a cameo in St Trinian’s 2.

Of course, she excited many with her slicked-up ‘look’ in the last Bond picture, Quantum Of Solace.

She’s currently playing Tamara Drewe in director Stephen Frears’ eponymous film based on Posy Simmonds’ graphic novel, which is itself loosely based on Far From The Madding Crowd. Ms Greig is also in the cast of that film, along with Dominic Cooper, Roger Allam and Bill Camp.

Gemma met with The Little Dog Laughed director Jamie Lloyd and soon after, a deal was clinched with producer Nick Frankfort.

The ensemble start rehearsals December 7, with preview performances set for January 8 at the Garrick Theatre. (And for those who’ve been following her career, yes, Gemma appeared as Rosaline in Love’s Labour’s Lost at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in Southwark – but that isn’t, strictly speaking, the West End.)
