Gemma Arterton has said that she will “always be sad” about missing out on playing Mary Poppins at the Olympics.

The Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters star was approached to play the iconic magical character during Danny Boyle’s opening ceremony, but was unable to work it into her schedule. Ultimately, Boyle chose to use several actors to play Mary Poppins.

Arterton told Digital Spy that she has “always wanted to be” the English nanny after growing up with the Disney movie.
