Taking time out from her filming schedule to draw attention to the deforestation crisis in Brazil was a no-brainer for Gemma Arterton. Amy Williams discovers why the actress prefers trekking in the remote Amazon jungle to being ‘styled and polished’ for premieres

Acording to Gemma Arterton, A Turtle’s Tale: Sammy’s Adventures, an animated film that was released last March and which very few people over the age of eight will have heard of, is ‘honestly, the best movie I have ever made’ and ‘absolutely brilliant’ and ‘cute but with a serious message. There are oil spills and stuff.’ Gemma provides the voice of love-interest turtle Shelly.

That Gemma – a former Bond girl who has found fame through blockbusters such as Prince of Persia: the Sands of Time and Clash of the Titans, and plaudits via critically acclaimed movies The Disappearance of Alice Creed and Tamara Drewe – should choose a film which is a) a cartoon, b) has the tag line ‘He’s Turtlely Amazing’, and c), in Gemma’s own words, ‘no one has actually seen’, tells us quite a bit about 25-year-old Ms Arterton.

Dominic Cooper told New magazine about his favourite things. The actor loves ABBA, New Zealand and Gemma Arterton.

“She’s adorable. I loved working with her on Tamara Drewe. She’s such fun and as bad as me at Scrabble, which we played a lot! That’s a good thing, as there’s nothing worse than playing against someone who’s better than you! I loved being around her; she’s talented, very beautiful and she’s going to be huge.”

Were you surprised by how excited you got in the recording booth?

Gemma Arterton: I really let go, especially when you have to do the things like the screaming and going crazy. I also had to do a lot of flapping of fins to get the movement right, so at first you’re a bit like: “I look like an idiot!” But then you think: “Oh sod it!” And you just go for it. But it’s really good fun doing this sort of thing. Obviously, when you do movies you have to do a lot of ADR [automated dialogue replacement] and things all the time, so I’ve been in the booth quite a lot doing stuff like that so it wasn’t completely alien to me.

In just a few short years, she’s become one of Britain’s hottest young actresses. From parts in the Bond movie Quantum Of Solace to the blockbusting Clash Of The Titans and the British drama Tamara Drewe, Gemma Arterton has become a name on everyone’s lips.

Now the 25-year-old from Gravesend, Kent, lends her voice to the animated fantasy A Turtle’s Tale. Here, Gemma talks about her career and discusses what the future holds.

Did you identify with your character Shelley from A Turtle’s Tale?

Absolutely. If I was a turtle I’d be like her. When I filmed this I was doing a play so it was nice to do the complete opposite. Dominic Cooper, who does the voice of Sammy, is a friend of mine and we worked together on Tamara Drewe. He recommended me for the role. I was very grateful as I’ve always wanted to do an animation. For us it was just Dominic and Gemma swimming in the ocean. Read More

Gemma Arterton reckons humans can learn a lot from turtles.

The 25-year-old actress will lend her voice to animated feature, A Turtle’s Tale: Sammy’s Adventures, alongside fellow native Dominic Cooper. The movie tells the story of Sammy the sea turtle, who searches the ocean for his one true love. The pair believes much can be garnered from the life of turtles, as their loyalty and contentment are an example to all.

“These three turtles who grow up together, and have these long lives and have these long relationships; it’s kind of beautiful actually. We should be more like that as humans. You know, they’re very devoted to each other and never stray, something we could definitely learn from…I think that’s a lovely message for kids,” Gemma told the BBC.

Dominic, who is mostly known for his roles in Mamma Mia! and The Duchess, concurred with his co-star, revealing he was also touched by the movie’s underlying message. He though, felt the similarities between man and animal was too similar to be ignored.

“What stuck out for me was this beautiful image of just sharing experiences with someone else throughout your life and that’s what’s moving between human and animal companionship,” he added.
