Producers regret killing off Strawberry Fields character

08-Oct-2012 • Bond News

In an interview with the BBC, British actress Gemma Arterton has revealed that James Bond producers regretted killing off her character Strawberry Fields in the last 007 outing "Quantum of Solace".

"I just met Barbara Broccoli in the corridor and she said, 'I wish we hadn't killed you off'. It would have been so good to come back," Arterton said.

Landing a Bond Girl role was a whirlwind for the (then) 21 year-old actress. She adds, "It was my second movie and I just remember feeling it was a dream ... There was a really good vibe on set and it was a great time."

And joking about her "awful" sex scene with Craig, she reveals, "It was my first scene, my first day on the set ... and I remember not really knowing what was gonna happen, and then Daniel Craig just started kissing my back and I was like, 'Oh my God,' but then had to pretend that I was cool about it ... He's (Craig) a lovely guy, so he made it very easy."

Thanks to 'GermanLady' for the alert.
