The British actress thoroughly enjoyed playing the title character in 2009’s The Disappearance of Alice Creed — about a young woman who is kidnapped by two ex-convicts — because she was allowed to scream expletives at the top of her voice.

“In Alice Creed I’m shouting, ‘F**k off, you ****!’ a lot. It was nice,” Gemma said. “I can imagine myself saying that more.”

Although she enjoyed most of the thriller movie’s violence, one scene left Gemma terrified her costars would beat her up after she was accidentally hit in the face.

“I did get punched in the face by accident,” said the 24-year-old. “And the day before that I got punched in the nose, and got a nose bleed.

“We were doing an over-the-head shot, and every time the punch came in it’d just go past my eye. And everything was blurry, so I kept thinking, ‘Ahh! He’s going to hit me!’

“I was so petrified. I had a bit of a moment – but it was my only one which I thought was quite impressive, seeing what I went through.”
