Former Bond girl Gemma Arterton up for BAFTA Rising Star AwardJanuary 11th, 2011 - 5:22 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 11 (ANI): Gemma Arterton, who appeared in 2008 Bond film ‘Quantum of Solace’, is up for this year’s BAFTA Rising Star award.
Film critic and Bafta member Mark Kermode said that Arterton’s inclusion summed up what the Rising Star award was about.
He said that despite starring in big budget movies like Clash of the Titans, Arterton “came into her own” in the low-budget kidnap thriller ‘The Disappearance of Alice Creed’.
“On the strength of that you could show that to any casting director and say that’s the range that she can do,” the BBC quoted him as saying.
‘Inception’ star Tom Hardy, new ‘Spider-Man’ actor Andrew Garfield, US actress Emma Stone and ‘Kick-Ass’ star Aaron Johnson are also in the running.
The winner will be announced at the BAFTA awards on February 13. (ANI)
