Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

English ac­tor Gemma Arter­ton (left) says she took up all sorts of roles at the be­gin­ning of her ca­reer and feels that it has been a learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

The 31-year-old ac­tor says that she is grate­ful to all those films that have helped her grow as an ac­tor, re­ported ES mag­a­zine. “Com­ing from a work­ing class back­ground—we were poor and then go­ing to a drama school where they tell you, and rightly so, that you’re prob­a­bly not go­ing to work most of the time, and sud­denly be­ing given all these op­por­tu­ni­ties when I left...,” she says.

“For the first eight years of my ca­reer, I was do­ing stuff be­cause I thought I should, or I thought I was lucky to get that part. And I’m grate­ful—it set me up. But it sits re­ally badly with me when I make some­thing I’m not proud of, or doesn’t say what I want to say,” says Arter­ton.
