Gemma Arterton says the experience of playing a kidnap victim was “physically exhausting”.

The actress, who shot to fame in the St Trinian’s movie and Bond film Quantum Of Solace, took on the role in the film The Disappearance Of Alice Creed.

She said: “I actually didn’t realise when I was doing it that it was really hard, you know, I’d just go straight to bed – I was exhausted and often I was in tears for like eight hours a day.”

Gemma, 24, went on: “It was physically exhausting, because I was handcuffed and tied to a bed.

“It was full on, but that’s why I love acting, all these different experiences that you would never have in your own life, hopefully, you know, so it was great, a great experience.”

The Disappearance Of Alice Creed was the feature film debut of writer-director J Blakeson and was shown at the London Film Festival last year.
