    Gemma Arterton briefly spoke about her role as Bond girl Agent Fields on the red carpet during the recent premiere of comedy Three And Out.

    Arterton, who most recently acted alongside Daniel Craig and several other Quantum of Solace stars during the shooting in Panama this past February and March, stated: ‘My Bond girl’s not really a Bond villain. She’s not glamorous or anything–she’s quite geeky. So I don’t know… it’s amazing what a haircut will do!’

    ‘I just went to work every day, and if I thought about it too much I’d freak out! But it was absolutely brilliant.’

    Arterton also denied that she went on a fitness regime to prepare for the role. ‘I actually put loads of weight on,’ she said. ‘Well, not loads of weight–but some weight when I was trying to lose it so I could be all toned. But that’s not my character–she’s not really that sort of Bond girl.’

    Commenting on her rapid rise to fame since appearing in 2007’s St. Trinian’s and now in Quantum of Solace, she said: ‘It’s been insane. I can’t really explain it. It’s been actually out of this world and brilliant and scary and exciting.’
