I’m not even sure if I should even bother putting the SPOILER tag in the title, since the article appears in The Daily Mail newspaper Across the Pond in the UK, and is prominently featured on their website. Also, if you’ve seen the recent trailers, you’ll notice that Gemma Atherton’s spy character has been getting shortchanged. As in, she’s pretty much disappeared almost entirely, and instead, the trailers have been focusing almost exclusively on Olga Kurylenko’s character Camille running and fighting alongside Bond. So why the seemingly excising of Gemma Atherton’s Agent Fields? Probably because … well, SPOILER BELOW.
…Gemma Atherton’s character gets killed and covered in oil and left on the bed for, one presumes, Bond to find.
More from The Daily Mail:
In the new 007 movie Quantum Of Solace, Gemma Arterton’s character is drowned in crude oil and her lifeless body is left draped over a bed in a scene deliberately reminiscent of the 1964 Bond classic Goldfinger.
Arterton, who plays an MI6 spy ordered to keep an eye on a renegade Bond, was covered from head to toe in sticky black liquid for the dramatic sequence.
She said: ‘I couldn’t move. I couldn’t see, I couldn’t breathe or hear because it went in my ears. It was unpleasant, but it’s something I’ll always remember and it will be an iconic part of the film.’
Producers will be hoping the image turns out to be as enduring as the memorable Sixties scene which inspired it.
Although she gets killed in the movie, Bond still managed to bump uglies with the lovely redhead. That’s our boy! Get them while they’re still fresh … and alive, I always say. Pics of Atherton’s death scene below.
