So, what did you think of last night’s episode of Tess?

BBC1’s adaptation of Tess of the D’Urbervilles lost 600,000 viewers for its second episode last night, but still managed to top ITV1 drama Agatha Christie’s Poirot, and movie productions The Notebook and Black Hawk Down in the 9pm hour. Not bad at all!

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.

They didn’t have to ask Eddie Redmayne twice to be in BBC1’s Tess Of The D’Urbervilles.

Eddie plays Tess’s love interest Angel Clare and he jumped at the chance to get up close and personal with Gemma Arterton.

“I had a stronger emotional attachment to this script than anything else I’ve ever read,” says Eddie.

“The character of Angel is liberal, a little bit out there for his time.” This Sunday, Angel falls for Tess and they enjoy a summer of love. Then things go horribly wrong. Eddie adds: “The day-in dayout toil with no respite gives a real insight into those times.”

Her favourite actress is Elizabeth Taylor, her film Mary Poppins and her book The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. She is teaching herself Spanish and is a fine singer. She is the protagonist of BBC1’s adapation of Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbervilles and the hot new Bond girl who’s gonna blow everyone away. Watch out for Gemma Arterton!

Is it me or Tatler (and the production of Prince of Persia) went for a modern and tanned version of Cleopatra?
