Gemma Arterton has said that her BAFTA ‘Rising Star’ nod shows that she is being taken seriously as an actress.

The Tamara Drewe star is competing for the gong with other nominees Andrew Garfield, Tom Hardy, Aaron Johnson and Emma Stone.

Arterton told Metro: “It’s just nice to been taken seriously… [and] not seen as just a sex symbol.

“This award is great because it’s not about one particular role, it’s about a body of work. I am proud that is being recognised.”

She added: “I am really excited. I am quite amazed actually. I can’t really believe it. I’m an old timer.

“I suppose for the rising star award you need a little bit of work behind you for them to celebrate – so people of note will know you. Last year I had four movies out but I have been around for three years.”
