Arterton and the Peaky Blinders actor tied the knot in a secret ceremony in Ireland in Sept. 2019, two years after they met while both appearing in the play St. Joan by George Bernard Shaw on London’s West End.
Speaking with The Telegraph in 2018, Arterton shared concerns about balancing a family and her career.
“I’m a neurotic person and a worrier anyway, and I think, ‘Oh God, when I have kids am I still going to be able to do all this?'” she told the outlet. “When we were kids my mom and my grandmother didn’t work, and I think that made them sad. That has influenced me.”
In a December 2020 interview with the sun, the actress reflected on her role as intelligence operative Strawberry Fields in the 22nd James Bond movie, which starred Daniel Craig as the titular agent.
“At the beginning of my career, I was poor as a church mouse and I was happy just to be able to work and earn a living,” she said. “I still get criticism for accepting Quantum of Solacebut I was 21, I had a student loan, and you, know, it was a Bond film.”
She added, “But as I got older I realized there was so much wrong with Bond women.”
