Gemma in new role
, June 19, 2013
British actress Gemma Arterton poses for photographers at the British Academy of Film and Arts (BAFTA) awards ceremony at the Royal Opera House in London in this February 10 file photo.
Arterton does not need to worry about typecasting with roles ranging from a fairy tale character and literary heroines to MI6 agent Strawberry Fields in the 2008 James Bond film "Quantum of Solace."
In "Unfinished Song," a comedy-drama that opens in US theaters on June 21, 2013, Arterton, 27, stars as Elizabeth, a music teacher in a boys' school.
She also directs a choir for seniors, which includes Marion, played by Vanessa Redgrave, and forges a special friendship with her cantankerous retired husband, played by Terence Stamp. Reuters/Suzanne Plunkett
