Gemma Arterton is quietly enjoying her own career renaissance. The actress shot to fame in 2008’s ‘Quantum of Solace’ playing Bond girl Strawberry Fields opposite Daniel Craig, a role she quickly followed with headlining parts in ‘Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time’, ‘Clash of the Titans’, and ‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters’, but no sooner had she hit the Hollywood blockbuster A-list that she began to bid a hasty retreat. The 30-year-old star quit marching to Hollywood’s tune four years ago, telling the Guardian recently she simply “couldn’t do it any more”, and she now prefers smaller roles in indie films (she recently became fluent in French for ‘Gemma Bovery’), and this week she can be seen in ‘The Girl With All The Gifts’, a zombie film from first-time director Colm McCarthy (‘Sherlock’).
