Could you have made it this far without RADA (Royal Academy of Dramatic Art)?
I don’t think so. I don’t mean to say this generally, I wouldn’t have known where and how to begin, if I didn’t go to RADA. Because, I didn’t have any connections, there’s literally nobody in my life who’s in the industry. I wouldn’t have known how to get work, or get an agent in the first place. Getting into RADA put me into that stage to be seen, and for three years I’ve learned about acting. There are so many different styles of acting, and ways of getting a performance out of you and you have to find your own way, and you take bits of it, not the whole lot. You take things that work for you and go with it, but I think drama school is an amazing things to do. There are a lot of actors that haven’t and don’t feel like it’s necessary, but for me it was.

Thanks to Chuckie for the scans.

British actress Gemma Arterton’s career has seen her literally running the gamut, from big-ticket actioners like the 007 film QUANTUM OF SOLACE, CLASH OF THE TITANS and PRINCE OF PERSIA to the intense, confined thrills of THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ALICE CREED. Now she’s kicking butt again as one-half of the heavily armed sibling team in HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS (opening Friday from Paramount). Arterton spoke to Fango about her most adventurous role yet, as well as her upcoming vampire drama BYZANTIUM and a reunion with her DISAPPEARANCE director.

In HANSEL & GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS, directed and co-written by Tommy Wirkola (who broke out with the Nazi-zombie film DEAD SNOW), Arterton and THE AVENGERS’ Jeremy Renner play the sister and brother who defeated a predatory sorceress in childhood, and have since devoted their lives to exterminating her kind. Their chief nemesis is evil witch Muriel (Famke Janssen), who has been stealing the children of a small village in preparation for a sacrifical rite during the impending Blood Moon. Mixing period and fairy-tale tropes with updated weaponry, HANSEL & GRETEL is a true genre-blender, as Arterton explains…

FANGORIA: Were you familiar with DEAD SNOW before you did HANSEL & GRETEL?

GEMMA ARTERTON: Yeah! When I heard about the project, I did watch it. I’m not usually one for gore [laughs], so I watched it with hands over my eyes, but it was a really clever film, tonally. Tommy has a great sense of humor and knowledge of film, so I was excited to work with him. Read More

Gemma Arterton talks to the Metro about wanting to spread her acting wings and take on less commercial roles as she aims to rid herself of being known as ‘that girl from Bond’, and why working in a pub was her best first job.

What did you get up to in Brazil?

It’s an initiative between Sky and the WWF to raise awareness of deforestation and to save a billion trees in three years. I went to the state of Acre. There’s a road being built and usually loggers get in and it leads to deforestation. It’s easy to deforest, it’s quick money, so this is about giving people other means to make a living by using the rainforest. They love the forest they live in and don’t want to chop it down but they’re so poor they often don’t have a choice. They’ve been changing the way they live as part of the campaign.
