THE DAILY MAIL – Gemma Arterton said she’s going to ‘let her hair down’ when she portrays actress and royal mistress Nell Gwynn, in swirling skirts and bloomers, on the West End stage.

Renowned as much for her wit as for her beauty, Gwynn is often referred to as the favourite of Charles II’s many lovers.

Gemma, born in Gravesend, Kent, told The Daily Mail that the play, Nell Gwynn, by Jessica Swale, ‘speaks to me in that “working-class girl finding her voice and breaking through class barriers” kind of way’.

She hadn’t been expecting to return to the stage so soon after starring in the musical Made In Dagenham, for which she received the Evening Standard’s musical newcomer award during a ceremony at the Old Vic last Sunday.

But she couldn’t resist Nell and her bawdy ditties. ‘There’s singing! And dancing! Gwynn’s very lively,’ said Gemma of the play which originally starred Gugu Mbatha-Raw when it started life at Shakespeare’s Globe for a recent short run.

Gemma said she likes the scenes where Nell engages with the audience about popular topics, including how women are treated. ‘It’s nice to know that we’ve had to fight through this before,’ Gemma observed, wryly.

After Dagenham closed, she shot four films back to back, all of which will be released next year. One is the wartime-set Our Finest Hour And A Half, in which she’ll appear alongside leading man Sam Claflin, for director Lone Scherfig, who also directed An Education.

Future projects include a film version of Eileen Atkins’s play Vita And Virginia, about the intimate friendship between Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf, with Gemma as West.

Gemma and Atkins got to know each other when both were performing at Shakespeare’s Globe — Gemma in The Duchess Of Malfi, and Atkins in an Ellen Terry monologue.

Ms Arterton and the Globe go back a long way. Dominic Dromgoole, outgoing artistic director, cast her as Rosaline in Love’s Labour’s Lost, her first professional part after leaving RADA.

‘Dominic and the Globe seeded Gemma,’ said Nica Burns, Nell Gwynn’s key producer, who co-runs Nimax — the company that controls the Apollo Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, where Nell Gwynn will begin preview performances on February 4.
