Profile of "Bond", "Prince of Persia" actress Gemma Arterton - Michael - September 5th, 2008

A year ago she was fresh out of college and up to her ears in debt.

Today Gemma Arterton is a rising star of everything from Bond films to bodice-rippers.

But lean times are not hard to forget and Gemma, whose mum brought her up alone while working as a cleaner, has an eye for a bargain at Primark.
Last night four million viewers watched Gemma, 22, playing Lizzie Bennet in ITV's comedy period piece Lost in Austen. And she will soon take the starring role in Tess Of The D'Urbervilles, the BBC's new costume drama.
But it's not just prime-time TV that Gemma is fast conquering.

Following her big screen debut in the St Trinian's movie, Guy Ritchie cast her in his latest gangster flick RocknRolla.

Gemma also saw off 1,500 hopefuls to become a Bond girl in the 007 thriller Quantum of Solace.

Her film St. Trinian's (2007) looks promising.

A movie about bad schoolgirls, nonetheless!

Stars Mischa Barton, Catarina (Bond girl from 'Casino Royale) Murino, Talulah (from 'Dr. Who') Riley, and Nadine Coyle....OMGs!:jawdrop:

Interesting range of roles she has taken on. I guess she doesn't want to be stereotyped or typecast.

Indeed. And she's only 22. She's already making a name for herself in real roles, not just fluff.

What's this about Prince of Persia?
I absolutely love the POP games, and I've heard there was going to be a movie; but I have no idea whether or not that's anything more than an unsubstantiated rumor.
