Gemma Arterton graduated from St Trinian’s to star as Tess of the d’Urbervilles. Now she’s playing opposite Daniel Craig in the new Bond film. Is this the start of global domination for the girl from Gravesend?

The moment Gemma Arterton heard she’d be the new Bond girl is ingrained on her mind for ever. She was on a boat, just off the coast of Gibraltar, filming the comedy Three and Out with Mackenzie Crook. Dressed in full scuba-diving gear – what else would a prospective Bond girl be wearing? – Arterton answered her mobile phone to her agent, who immediately began humming the James Bond theme down the line; the role of Agent Fields in the 22nd 007 film, Quantum of Solace, was hers. So moved was Crook, he shed a tear for his co-star and uttered, “This is such a big moment in your life.” Read More

Gemma was nowhere to be seen in last night’s episode of Lost in Austen. I guess we’ll only get to see Elizabeth again in next week’s final episode.

Guy Ritchie’s latest action flick RocknRolla won’t hit theaters here in the U.S. until Oct. 31, but in case you can’t take the wait, here are six clips to give you a sneak peek. In the film, London’s toughest criminals go head to head in the race for a bunch of money. Gemma appears briefly in the fifth clip.

In the meantime, I’ve kept myself busy capping the first episode of Tess.

If you thought that there wasn’t enough Gemma in last week’s episode of Lost in Austen… Well, think again! There was even less in this week’s episode! She only appeared in the “previously” and “opening credits” bits.

Fortunately, we’ll be able to rejoice (okay, maybe that’s not the most appropriate word for a tragic story, but you get the point) with Tess of the D’Urbervilles this Sunday (at 9pm on BBC1).

Gemma Arterton romps with 007 in the new James Bond but now she’s gearing up for the ultimate Tess.

She told TV Land that playing the lead in Tess of the D’Urbervilles is “the highlight of my career so far”. And having seen the first episode, starting Sunday night on BBC1, I have to agree.

“When I found out I’d got the part, I was ecstatic,” she says. “I never thought I’d get to play a leading role in a period drama at the BBC.”

And to make matters even more magical, she got to film at Stonehenge.

Gemma recalls: “We were overcome just thinking, ‘Wow this is where Thomas Hardy imagined the scene to take place.’ When you walk in, there’s something spooky about it.”

Less magical was filming a rape scene.

But Gemma says: “I’m not the sort who takes it with them. I’d be in a bleak scene all day and come out talking about shoes!”

Well Gemma, that’s certainly no mean feat.

I took screencaps from the 1st episode (out of 4) of Lost in Austen that aired last Wednesday on ITV1. Gemma was absolutely lovely as Elizabeth Bennet. Too bad she didn’t have that much screen time, especially if we compare it with Jemima Rooper’s. I hope we’ll get too see more of Miss Arterton this week! :)

It was Bond girl Gemma Arterton who was both shaken and stirred when the wind got up as she was filming a crucial scene in Panama for the new 007 film Quantum Of Solace.

For Gemma, who plays alluring undercover operative Agent Fields, revealed rather more than she bargained for as she and 007 left a hotel in a hurry on the trail of a man Bond is chasing.

‘I had to wear a mac and boots with nothing underneath,’ she said, ‘and I had to be really careful because the mac kept blowing open.’ Read More
