Bond girl Gemma Arterton insists her most unpleasant acting experience has turned out to be one of her best - when she was covered in oil and left for dead on the bed she shared with 007 Daniel Craig.
The actress' new Quantum of Solace Bond girl character, Agent Fields, is drowned in oil by the film's villains - and then dumped on the bed she shared with the suave superspy the night before.
Arterton had to be covered from head to toe in oil for the death scene - and then she lay there for two hours, covered in gunk.
She tells WENN, "Filming that scene was brilliant, although it was quite strange. I was taken on the set and dowsed in the oil and I had to lay there for almost two hours.
"I couldn't move, I couldn't see, I couldn't breathe properly, and I couldn't hear because all the oil went in my ears. At the time I thought it was quite unpleasant, but then I thought, 'This is something I will always remember, and it will be an iconic part of the film.'"
