Gemma Arterton aims to break tried-and-tested Bond girl mouldSeptember 30th, 2008 - 5:46 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Sept 30 (ANI): British actress Gemma Arterton insists that her feisty character in the new Bond flick Quantum Of Solace will fail to turn on red-blooded male fans because shes too normal.
The 22-year-old actress aims to break the tried-and-tested Bond girl image by playing a down-to-earth love interest of James Bond Daniel Craig as the suave secret agent.
Although Arterton admits that her character in the movie isn”t “hot”, but she believes she has a certain humble charm that will interest most men.
“There is a formula to Bond women. They”re his women. You just have to make them your own in any way you can, Contactmusic quoted Arterton, as saying.
“To the normal guy, they”re unobtainable but I didn”t want that. I wanted my character to be a girl from down the road who does this job - we don”t know exactly what she does but she goes to work every day - and comes back and she goes down the pub at the weekend and has a drink.”
“At first you might think she was a bit of a snooty bitch but she’’s actually quite nice when you get to know her. I wanted to make her real. She’’s not hot but I hope there’’s a charm to her,” she added. (ANI)
