Gemma Arterton looking for meaty rolesSeptember 11th, 2010 - 11:32 pm ICT by IANS
London, Sep 11 (IANS) British actress Gemma Arterton is keen on doing varied roles as she thinks she may be getting typecast.
The “Tamara Drewe” actress is now looking forward to putting her roles as a love interest in “Clash of the Titans” and “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” behind her to focus on stronger female characters, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I feel so lucky. I always thought I would be in period dramas playing downtrodden girls in love. I read so many scripts and they’re all the same - either the character is just someone to be in the background or they’re there to help the man, to be the love interest,” said Arterton.
“What I want to do is find characters who are the focus. Sexy and real women, not perfect. Not pin-ups,” she added.
