She led a school revolution in the recent St. Trinian’s film and will soon be dicing with death in the new Bond movie, but actor Gemma Arterton faced her toughest assignment yet on Monday when she was grilled by pupils at a Hampstead school.

The 23-year-old star, who beat 1,500 other contenders to the ­coveted Bond girl role, was quizzed by the enquiring minds of year 5 and 6 youngsters at Christchurch Primary School.

Thanks to close ties between parents of pupils at the school and the movie industry, the children are taking on the mantle of Hollywood producers.

Gemma Arterton: No, every day there’s something exciting that happens, like I just got asked to present at the BAFTAs, which I can’t do because I’m filming this, but little things like that. I’ve only just left drama school and have been working professionally for six months, so all of this is out of this world. It doesn’t feel real still. That’s why I wasn’t too nervous on the first day because I just felt like it was a game. The size of it hasn’t hit me yet, but I’m sure that it will.

They come from very different backgrounds. One is the daughter of a Gravesend welder while the other was brought up by a single mum in a bleak, impoverished Ukrainian backwater.

But Gemma Arterton and Olga Kurylenko have both been plucked from obscurity for roles in the new Bond film, Quantum of Solace.

Just nine months ago, Gemma, who is 22 this week, was working in a Covent Garden beauty shop.

“We had a Bond themed night a year ago and I had dress as a Bond girl and sell make-up,” says the actress who plays MI6 operative Agent Fields. “And now here I am, a real Bond girl!
