Actress Gemma Arterton is worried being in the new James Bond film 'Quantum of Solace' will ruin her career
Gemma Arterton is worried being in the new James Bond film will ruin her career.
The actress - who plays Agent Fields in 'Quantum of Solace' - is concerned she may be typecast and will "never work again" after the film's release.
She said: "Luckily, I haven't had time to reflect but appearing with 007 carries the threat of a career crash, as has happened in the past. Sometimes it closes doors.
"People have asked me, 'Are you worried about not getting work after Bond?' I don't know. I could be in the biggest film, be absolute rubbish in it and never work again."
But the 22-year-old star has no concerns about being compared to previous Bond girls, such as Britt Ekland and Ursula Andress.
She added to Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "I'm going to get compared but I'm not worried about it. It's just mad and a bit surreal. My attitude to everything is just deal with what's in front of me. I don't tend to think far ahead."
Gemma recently revealed she ended up in a "giggling mess" after kissing Daniel Craig, who plays the British spy in the film.
She said: "Kissing Daniel was great - I can't pretend it wasn't. It was my first day on set and I'd only met him once before - and then suddenly we were expected to kiss.
"He was very cool and I was a giggling mess. I mumbled something like, 'I just kissed you!' and he just coolly said, 'Yes, you did. And now we have to do it again.' Fortunately, he's an incredible kisser."
