Wochit Headline News - Friday, 21 April 2017
Gemma Arterton has been overlooked for some roles because she hasn't been "posh enough". But Gemma also acknowledged the idea can be overplayed at times, pointing out that some actors from working-class backgrounds simply wish to steer clear of playing "posh" characters. As well as starring in big-budget movies, like the James Bond film 'Quantum of Solace' in 2008, Gemma has also been hailed for her theatre work, which has included her widely acclaimed performance in the musical version of 'Made in Dagenham'. Arterton reflects, "The theatre has always been my first love."
