Arterton: Crew had to 'gag' me!
Gemma Arterton has joked that the gag she had to wear for her latest film helped the crew stop her talking.
The 24-year-old actress plays a kidnap victim in The Disappearance Of Alice Creed and had to wear a gag for much of it.
She said: "I'm quite a chatty person and we had the props guys on set who would have to handcuff me and tie me up and sometimes I'd be chatting and they'd be like, 'Oops, okay now' and put the gag in. It was funny."
Gemma added that sometimes she had to ask for a break from wearing the prop.
She said: "There were times when it did get a bit much and I would say, 'Look guys, can we take a break' but you know, it was a really trustworthy situation and I never felt at any point that I was being taken advantage of or anything bad was going to happen.
"I was in such good hands and I trusted J [Blakeson, the writer-director] so much."
:: The Disappearance Of Alice Creed opens in cinemas on April 30.
