Gemma Arterton has admitted she feels drawn to the supernatural, after taking a role in psychological thriller The Voices.

The former Bond girl, who plays a vampire in her latest movie Byzantium, has just finished shooting Marjane Satrapi's psychological thriller alongside Ryan Reynolds and Anna Kendrick.

"Oh my gosh, I can't tell you how excited I am," Gemma said.

"It's again another bizarre supernatural film, which I seem to be drawn to. I like going into a world that's not quite real.

"I just wrapped it and I don't want to give too much away because it's really surprising as well, but I'm really excited about it."

The Voices tells the story of a disturbed factory worker (played by Ryan) who hears advice from his pet dog and cat, and is implicated in the accidental death of his co-worker.

Gemma said: "I enjoyed every minute of this film (Byzantium) and The Voices equally. I'm working with a supremely talented director Marjane Satrapi who directed Persepolis, and a wonderfully talented cast ranging from Ryan, Jacki Weaver and Anna."

The Tamara Drewe actress stars alongside Saoirse Ronan in Neil Jordan's vampire film Byzantium, which is in cinemas now.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
