Gemma Arterton on Hollywood and acting by candlelight

Actress Gemma Arterton is playing the title role in The Duchess of Malfi, the macabre, tragic play written by the English dramatist John Webster in 1612.

The play is being performed entirely by candlelight at the Globe in London within the second theatre, which has been designed to replicate the indoor playhouses of the early 17th Century.

The BBC's Brenda Emmanus caught up with Arterton to talk about the play and why she does not think she is the perfect fit for Hollywood.
