Since her breakout role as Bond girl "Strawberry Fields" in Quantum of Solace, Gemma Arterton has gone on to appear in a series of blockbusters and indies. This summer she co-starred with Jake Gyllenhaal and Ben Kingsley in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, and she headlines the quirky new comedy Tamara Drewe.
In this movie based on a comic-strip-turned-graphic-novel by Posy Simmonds, Arterton plays Tamara, once the town's "ugly duckling," who returns (with a new nose and eye-catching figure) to fix up and sell her childhood home. Leonard Maltin talks with Arterton about her career and which movie role she "needed to do." Tune in for the Maltin on Movies premiere on Friday, October 15, at 3:30 PM ET / 12:30 PM PT. Or catch one of its encore showings on ReelzChannel (Dish 299, DirecTV 238, and your cable system).
