Gemma Arterton: I’m not very famous

By Tribute News on May 27, 2014 | 1 Comment

Gemma Arterton Gemma Arterton doesn't think she's very famous. The actress will star in a new musical remake of hit film Made in Dagenham in London's West End later this year, but she admits she fears no one will want to buy tickets because they won't know who she is. She said: ''I'm doing a new musical at the end of the year at the Adelphi [theatre], 'Made in Dagenham', and we've got to sell it out. I'm like, 'How are we gonna sell out, with all these musicals that are closing, when the tickets are so expensive, and the theaters are so big?' I'm not that famous! It's not like they've got Keira Knightley or Natalie Portman. I'm sure people will see my name on the poster and they'll say, 'Who's that?' '' The 28-year-old beauty also lamented on her continuous connection to James Bond film Quantum of Solace, despite branching out into the respected world of theater. She told Radio Times magazine: ''Even when the reviews came out for 'The Duchess of Malfi', it was always, 'Bond girl tries to do theater.' I didn't even have a big part in Bond! I'm proud of it, but it is a bit weird that it's always brought up.''
