Mumbai: British actor Gemma Arterton shot to fame with the role of agent Strawberry Fields in the James Bond flick Quantum of Solace.

However, she is unfazed by speculations of Indian actor Freida Pinto starring in the next Bond flick. On the contrary, Gemma is convinced that Freida would do a great job if she actually becomes a Bond girl.

“As of now, I heard that all such news of her being approached for the next Bond girl is a grapevine rumour. But if it comes true, I can say that I have seen her work, and, yeah, she might pull it off well as I too started so fresh in the shoes of a Bond girl but the camera and of course the director taught me a lot,” says Gemma.

Speaking about Indian movies, Gemma feels they are completely ‘different’ from the ones made in the West. “I know the industry (Indian film industry) is a huge one. In fact I am told that it is the second largest in the world. Some friends of mine in England had Indian connections and they talked about Indian films. That’s all I knew about the films in India, till I saw Bride & Prejudice and Slumdog Millionaire. I found them very different as they had songs, dancing and some fabulous attire,” she says.

Gemma is also quite open to acting in a Bollywood movie. She says, “I want to do films and be it from any industry or language. I don’t mind exploring my skills and enhancing my acting anywhere in the world.”

Ask her about the most outrageous thing she has done, and she says, “In my upcoming movie directed by Louis Leterrier, it was crazy being dressed in skimpy outfits while shooting in the mountains of Spain because in the mornings the temperature used to be -2 degree C. Then, as the day went on, it would get up to 27 degrees. So it started off freezing cold and then got scorching.”
