What can an ex-Bond girl learn from playing a choir director who teaches oldsters to sing? “I had to learn how to play the piano and conduct,” says Gemma Arterton, who played Strawberry Fields in Quantum of Solace and stars with Vanessa Redgrave and Terrence Stamp in Unfinished Song, now in theaters.

“I’m always thinking about learning new things. It’s inevitable that everyone gets old, but there’s no reason not to find joy later on in life. Music is very cathartic, and it brings people together. It has this inescapable emotional effect. When you hear a piece of music, or especially if you sing it, it can be quite a release.”

Arterton, 27, who sang with several bands before becoming successful as an actress, hasn’t given up her own musical ambitions. “Next year I might be singing for a living,” she says. “I’m hoping to do a musical adaptation of Made in Dagenham (a film about women striking for equal pay at a Ford car plant in England) in London’s West End.”

Her challenge now is learning to speak French to play the title role in the film Gemma Bovery, based on Posy Simmonds’ graphic-novel homage to Madame Bovary.
