Sorry if there's already a thread about this very talented lady, but I couldn't find it. So, as some of you already knows, this month debuts the musical "Made in Dagenham, and here's the first song :



Too bad I can't travel to London, because it makes me want to see it.

    I'm happy to see that she hasn't been troubled by the 'Bond Girl Curse'.

    I can't fault her really! Good for her and I hope her success continues!

    She has been proven the Bond girl's curse wrong! Especially since her role in QOS was not exactly considered outstanding. I liked QOS, but found her character rather slim.

    A new trailer for a play she did recently :

    Wonder if we hear the actress's most famous line : "I'm the Protestant whore !"

    She made a very notable impression on me in her brief role in QoS. Much more so than Kurylenko, truth be told. Definite star power and screen confidence. I hope she gets back into the spy genre (my favourite) soon.

    As am I; Gemma's a very beautiful and talented actress.

    I've never understood this obsession with Arterton.

    She does a perfectly capable job in a nothing role but she hardly makes much more of an impact than Rory Kinnear.

    To hear some you'd think she was another Fiona or Vesper in the pantheon of great Bond women.

    But each to their own I suppose.

    Well I have to agree with you on that if we're only talking about QoS. Her role was puffed up to be a lot beforehand and so the character of Agent Fields could only come as a disappointment due to her limited screen-time and development. My friend and I certainly thought her role didn't live up to all the hype that there was beforehand when we saw QoS in the cinema in November 2008.

    And the rest isn't bad either. But she has proven time and again that she's not just a pretty face.

    Indeed, and there's plenty of fine cleavage too!

    After the thrid Kingsman movie, the next project of Gemma is a mini-series based on the movie The Black Narcissus. Could be interesting.

    Doesn't really hit me at all the same way the 1947 adaptation does. I admire them giving another adaptation a shot but seems to be quite lacking and tonally all over the place.
