Gemma Arterton has become a 'West End' superstar and some entertainment observers believe that she has the potential to become the next British leading lady 'superstar' in Hollywood.
She is known to many movie fans throughout the world thanks to her scene-stealing performance as 'Strawberry Fields' in the James Bond movie "Quantum of Solace" and has played feature roles in several other Hollywood projects which have performed well at the box office and her critical acclaim.
However, she does not yet have that 'signature' movie which fans refer back to as being an incredible display of her acting talent or as some entertainment observers have noted, does not have a film performance that could be deemed the equal of the superb performances she has been providing West End audiences as the star of the comedy musical "Made in Dagenham".
She has received huge amounts of critical acclaim for her portrayal of a mother who finds the strength to lead a group of women in their fight for equal pay (Daily Mail - January 31). Her sensational performances have made her one of the top stage attractions in London and has some entertainment observers believing that she is only 'one role away' from becoming a Hollywood leading lady superstar.
Some may argue that such a statement can be made for many Hollywood actresses but the number of actresses who some Hollywood movie observers can look at and say that posses not only gorgeous leading lady looks but the superior dramatic acting range of a Hollywood leading lady superstar is a small number and Gemma Arterton is one of the few people who one would include in this group.
The role that turns her into a leading lady superstar could be the movie "A Hundred Streets", a project that also stars Idris Elba and Ryan Gage or it might be her recently announced movie "Which Brings Me to You" but the one indisputable fact is that Gemma Arterton is a potential leading lady superstar on the big screen and in 2015 she is providing proof of her talent and potential in London as the star of "Made in Dagenham".
