Gemma Arterton Wouldn't Take Her 'Bond' Girl Role Now - Here's Why

Gemma Arterton is looking back on her role as Strawberry Fields in Bond film Quantum of Solace.

In a recent interview with The Telegraph, the 34-year-old actress opened up and revealed that she wouldn’t take the role today, if she were offered it.

Gemma shared that she does have “enormous gratitude” towards producer Barbara Broccoli who cast her in the project, she had no idea “how long that film would follow me around. You know, I haven’t seen it for about 15 years either, so I can’t really remember what’s in it or what I did.”

What she does know is that she “wouldn’t choose a role like that now.”

Her reason is “because [while] she was funny and she was sweet, but she didn’t really have anything to do – or a backstory.”

Gemma is looking forward to seeing No Time to Die, which is set to debut in theaters in November. See the latest trailer here…
