She’s the ex-Bond girl who’s turned her back on Hollywood to play a striking worker in the musical Made In Dagenham. But, Gemma Arterton tells Event, she’d be even happier singing karaoke down her local pub…

Gemma Arterton is starring in a musical version of Made In Dagenham, the true story of 1960s Ford workers who went on strike for equal pay

By Anita Singh, Arts and Entertainment Editor

Gemma Arterton has made her stage singing debut in a preview of Made In Dagenham and said the issue of women fighting for equality has not gone away.

The actress plays factory worker Rita O’Grady, who leads her fellow machinists at the Ford Motors plant in a strike to win equal pay for women during the 1960s. It is based on a true story and was turned into a film in 2010 with Sally Hawkins as Rita.

Made In Dagenham opens at the Adelphi Theatre in October. Arterton, 28, who appeared on the London stage earlier this year in The Duchess of Malfi, will be making her musical theatre debut.

“I had sung bits and bobs of karaoke and stuff but nothing like this,” she said at the launch in London, where the cast performed five songs to an invited audience.

“I saw the film when it came out at the cinema and I loved it. It made me cry. It was exactly up my street.” Read More

Actress Gemma Arterton explains why she is rethinking her career and taking on a lead role at Shakespeare’s Globe’s new theatre

By Veronica Lee

I meet former Bond girl Gemma Arterton as she takes a break from rehearsals for her latest play. She is casually dressed, with tousled hair and no make-up. In conversation she turns out to be a mix of serious actor and down-to earth Gravesend girl, and she guilelessly reveals – before the official announcement, although after months of speculation – that later this year she will star in a major West End musical, adapted from the film Made in Dagenham.

But we’re actually here to talk about her return to Shakespeare’s Globe in London, where she made her stage debut as an acclaimed Rosaline in Love’s Labour’s Lost in 2007, straight out of Rada.

Opening on January 15, she appears in the title role of John Webster’s revenge tragedy The Duchess of Malfi. She reunites with director Dominic Dromgoole, whose production opens the Globe’s new indoor space, the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse (named after the Globe’s founder, whose dream was to make it a year-round venue). The 340-seat wooden theatre, which has a thrust stage, will be lit by candles, as in Jacobean times.

Arterton, 28 tomorrow, talks enthusiastically about her return. “Even if I hadn’t made my debut here, the Globe would be very special as there’s a magic here. There’s nothing extravagant about the Playhouse in terms of set or lighting, and it feels just right for this play. It’s an intimate space, which means you can focus on the language and you don’t have to embellish it in any way. Read More
