Gemma Arterton is really looking forward to her upcoming movie She Who Brings Gifts, but insists she’s not playing against type – she’s just not wearing any make-up.

The dystopian horror is based on Mike Carey’s critically-acclaimed novel The Girl with All the Gifts, and Arterton plays maternal psychologist Helen Justineau.

“I’m really excited about this film,” the 30-year-old told Digital Spy. “The script is written by the author Mike Carey and it’s his first screenplay.

“The lead girl [Sennia Nanua] in it is just wonderful. She gives a heartbreaking and beautiful performance. And it’s very realistic within its futuristic setting.

“Everyone thinks I’m playing against my type – I’m not, I’m just not wearing any make-up! I’m playing a very maternal strong character. And it’s got Glenn Close in it, who’s just brilliant, and Paddy Considine. So really great actors.” Read More

It’s easy to like Gemma Arterton. She’s smart, funny and rarely afraid to speak her mind, so when she says she’s excited about her latest role, you know she means it. ‘I couldn’t resist it. It’s what we need in the West End right now: a bit of pep, a bit of witty comedy.’

It’s a freezing Monday morning at a rehearsal space in south-east London, and Gemma’s caught an early Eurostar from Paris – where she now lives much of the time – to start her second week of preparation for the West End run of Jessica Swale’s play Nell Gwynn.

Dressed in a grey mohair jumper, dark knee-length skirt, thick tights and suede boots – and with skin that glows despite little sign of make-up – she looks better than ever, with an added touch of Parisian polish. She approves of French style: ‘They know what suits them and they stick to it. It’s about knowing yourself, rather than following trends.’ Read More

Gemma Arterton turns 30 on Tuesday (2 February) and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate her birthday than to watch one of, if not all of her best films. From the star-studded The Boat That Rocked to children’s guilty pleasure St. Trinian’s, she’s appeared in a lot of titles considering she only really rose to fame less than 10 years ago.

She even played a Bond girl in the 2008 film Quantum Of Solace, so there’s bound to be something to suit everyone who wants to share in her special day.

Gemma Arterton is about to play feisty royal mistress Nell Gwynn in the West End — and a birthday today is not the only thing they have in common, she tells Nick Curtis

“She’s great fun, witty and fresh and real: she sort of represents this new wave of feminism without being stampy and shouty. She says it how it is.”

Gemma Arterton is describing Nell Gwynn, who she is playing in the West End transfer of Jessica Swale’s play about the orange-seller who became Charles II’s lover, stepping into the dainty shoes originally filled by Gugu Mbatha-Raw at Shakespeare’s Globe. Of course, the description pretty neatly fits Arterton herself, who also shares both an earthy sexuality with Swale’s seductive heroine and a birthday: Arterton turns 30 today while Gwynn would be 366.

The actress grumbles good-humouredly that she’ll mark her milestone with the technical rehearsal for the play after three short weeks’ rehearsal, and won’t be able to celebrate with her family in Gravesend or her boyfriend, assistant director Franklin Ohanessian, in Paris until after the run.

She had even been planning a bit of downtime after a hectic 2015. First she did her first all-singing, all-dancing role in Made in Dagenham, which won her an Evening Standard Theatre Award last year for Newcomer in a Musical, but which sadly closed after six months. (Arterton is still “the most proud of that out of everything I have done” and mourns its passing). Then she made four films back-to-back. But when she read Swale’s script it was a “no brainer”. The part of Nell, like the woman herself, was “irresistible”. Read More

London Burning Photoshoot

LONDON BURNING – “I grew up on a council estate, and when you grow up somewhere like that, it’s hard to shake it off. Even when you’re placed in über-glamorous circumstances, you can’t quite fit in. I’m so grateful to have come from that, because I can see the disparities between the two! Well, to me the glamorous side is not real at all. I enjoy going to film festivals, I enjoy going out for nice dinners and living the nouveau-riche life, because that’s what I am, nouveau-riche. Yet it’s not where I feel comfortable. I guess that’s why I live in south London still. Even though I live in a nice place, I still can be five minutes down the road and I’m in Brixton or wherever. I don’t think I could ever live anywhere that was manicured because I’d find it very uncomfortable…

How weird is this: [my first job was in] the Warner Bros shop! And then I ended up working on Warner Bros films. I made my first film when I was 22… I remember one day I was serving a guy in the shop that was James Bond’s stunt double, and he was boasting to everyone. And then, five years on, you’re working on the same thing. It’s weird. Life is full of things like that.“

It’s good to be back!!! Unfortunately, last August our host which had gloriously hosted us for over 7 years told us on a very short notice that they’d close doors. We were left without an online home and had to find another one. When we did, we couldn’t make the old thumbnails show up properly. You’ll probably notice that. But we decide to reopen the site anyway, while we try to fix the old thumbnails and other issues that we might have to deal with. So, please, bear with us and wish us a warm welcome back and keep coming back for your Gemma Arterton fix! In the meantime, I’ve added scans from 2015 that weren’t in our gallery yet. Enjoy! :D
