The 27-year-old actress is coming to the city next month for the UK premiere of her blood-curdling new movie, Byzantium.

The RADA graduate, who shot to fame with her 007 debut in Quantum of Solace, plays a 200-year-old predatory vampire in the film.

She will be joined on the red carpet at the Glasgow Film Theatre by her co-star in the film, Saoirse Ronan, known for Atonement and The Lovely Bones, and Byzantium's director Neil Jordan.

In the film, Arterton and Ronan play a mother and daughter who hide out in a run-down seaside hotel until their past catches up with them.

The screening, part of the Glasgow Film Festival, will take place at the GFT on Rose Street on Friday, February 22.

The film doesn't go on general release to the public until May.
