Gemma Arterton - Director Gives Second Arterton Sister A Big Break
British actress Gemma Arterton's younger sister has landed her first professional acting gig from the same director who gave the Bond girl her big break.
Director Stephen Poliakoff cast the Tamara Drewe beauty in Bbc Tv film Capturing Mary in 2007, when the brunette was still studying at acting school.
Now Hannah Arterton has caught the filmmaker's attention and he has handed the 22 year old a role in his new play, My City.
He tells London's Evening Standard, "It's a little diamond of a part, a supporting role, something that can be really noticed. We will see if history repeats itself."
Gemma and Hannah both trained at the British capital's revered Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (Rada) school.
