Incredible news! Congratulations to our girl, who has been officially cast in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, opposite Jake Gyllenhaal! It is truly amazing to see her career grow and expand like this!

Gemma Arterton couldn’t stop giggling during her on-screen kiss with Daniel Craig.

The 22-year-old actress – who stars as Agent Fields in new James Bond movie Quantum of Solace – admits she was “immature” during the romantic scene.

She said: “I was giggling left, right and centre and being really immature. I vaguely remember him laughing politely at something stupid I said. I told my mother about the kiss and she was like, ‘Oh my God!’ ”

Gemma also said despite being one of the most talked about actresses of her generation, she isn’t interested in money or fame.

She added to InStyle magazine: “I am from a working class background, so I can’t get my head round spending hundreds of pounds on clothes. I went to a Louis Vuitton party in Paris recently. It was rather posh – I didn’t half feel like a piece of riffraff!”

Sexy Bond girl Gemma Arterton was taught how to milk a cow for her latest screen role.

Gemma, 22, plays MI6 agent Fields in Quantum of Solace and has already shot love scenes with 007 Daniel Craig.

But she needed farmyard skills to play Thomas Hardy’s milkmaid Tess of the D’Ubervilles in a BBC costume drama.

So she went for lessons at a farm near Berkeley, Gloucs, and learned milking techniques on goats.

Farmer Judy King said: “She was a very confident young lady, very down to earth. She just got on with it all. She brought a bit of glamour to the farm, but she’d have a future with livestock if she wasn’t in the movies.”

Actress Gemma Arterton has confessed she preferred her onscreen kiss with Daniel Craig than her clinch with Mackenzie Crook.

The 22-year-old shared a screen kiss with Crook during their new movie Three and Out – but the star reluctantly admits Craig has a better technique.

She says, “They can’t be compared. They’re very different scenes. One is tender and loving and the other is passionate.

“Asking me to choose which one I’d date is so unfair, that’s horrible. I’d rather go out with someone completely unknown and obscure.

“But Daniel’s probably more my type because Mackenzie’s quite nervous. He was lovely though and the scene was very romantic.

Arterton is currently shooting new Bond film Quantum of Solace with Craig.
