Gemma Christina Arterton was conceived in Gravesend, Kent, England, where she was raised. She is the little girl of Sally-Anne (Heap), a cleaner, and Barry J. Arterton, a welder. Her mom’s cousin is singer-songwriter Eric Goulden.
Her parents separated from when she was age five, and Gemma subsequently lived with her more youthful sister and her mom. Her parents urged their kids to investigate their imaginative abilities. Gemma’s sister, Hannah, got a kick out of the chance to sing, whereas Gemma chose acting. During her adolescent years, she was a piece of the Masquerade and Miskin theater companies, showing up in productions of The Massacre of Civitella and Guiding Star. In 2004, she won an honor for Best Supporting Actress, which helped her to win an award to study at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA).
Whilst studying at RADA, she handled her first professional job in Capturing Mary (2007), coordinated by Stephen Poliakoff and starring Maggie Smith. Gemma moved on from RADA in 2007 and won her first film job in St. Trinian’s (2007). Her achievement job came in 2008, when she showed up in the James Bond film Quantum of Solace (2008). In 2009, she was the victor of Empire’s Best Newcomer Award.
