The hugely successful British actress Gemma Arterton – star of Quantum of Solace, Prince of Persia, Clash of the Titans and Tamara Drewe – has been speaking to FILMCLUB, the nationwide education charity, about her role in the new animated feature film A Turtles Tale.
We sent two lucky FILMCLUB Young Ambassadors, Erin and Elliot, to chat to the Hollywood star about the new film. Gemma told us what it was like to play an animated character, what inspired her to get involved in the project, and what research did she do on sea turtles to help her get into character.
A Turtle’s Tale is a 3D animation that follows the adventures of Sammy the sea turtle as he swims the ocean in search of his lost love.
After hatching on a Californian beach, Sammy heads for the sea where he finds and loses the love of his life, Shelly. Setting out on an epic journey, the tenacious turtle must battle hungry piranhas, escape a fearsome fish eagle and find a secret passage if he is to be reunited with Shelly.
A Turtle’s Tale is released in UK cinemas on 25 March 2011.
