Arterton Glad To Be Back Onstage

Former BOND girl GEMMA ARTERTON is pleased she decided to return to her theatre roots with a role in the West End - because working in movies wasn't challenging enough for her.
The British actress, best known for playing agent Strawberry Fields in 007 movie Quantum of Solace, began her career with an appearance in Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost in London in 2007, just months before she won her first big screen role in St Trinian's.
The 24 year old recently began a stint in The Little Dog Laughed, a satire about Hollywood, alongside The Young Victoria star Rupert Friend - and Arterton is adamant she made the right move to turn her back on films for a while.
She says, "I really love coming back to the stage. It is a much more rounded experience to working in films, which can be quite airy fairy."
