Gorgeous British actress/glamor model Gemma Atkinson is finally dipping her pretty pedicured toes (what? I notice these things) into the horror pool with a lead role in Eyeline Entertainment’s upcoming werewolf frightener 13HRS.
According to director Jonathan Glendening (S.N.U.B!), the film showcases Atkinson’s and her jaw-dropping 34E chest in traditional horror fashion.
He tells the Daily Star Sunday:
It’s a horror movie staple to have an incredibly sexy woman pursued by a terrifying beast. Gemma fulfils this role more than adequately. She’s wearing a mini-skirt, blue blouse and stilettos during the whole movie because it’s set over one night. She’s very sexy – I’m a big fan. She surprised me, to be honest – she was superb. This could be the start of a stellar acting career.
Atkinson, who starred on the British teen-soap Hollyoaks and its two spinoffs, is eager to leave modeling behind to focus on a career in film. The 25-year-old stunner has been taking drama and voice classes to better prepare for the endeavor.
She tells The Argus:
I did the modelling for about three years, but acting is what I really want to do. It was really scary at first because modelling was what I’d become known for. It kind of took over the Hollyoaks role, so I’ve been really lucky to get back to Gemma Atkinson, actress.
Atkinson goes on to describe her experience in 13HRS as hard work and is thrilled to learn that the film will finally make its way into theaters later this year (the movie wrapped a year ago).
The film’s official synopsis reads:
A full moon hangs in the night sky, and lightning streaks across dark storm clouds. Sarah Tyler (Calthorpe) returns to her troubled family home in the isolated countryside for a much put-off visit. As the storm rages on, Sarah, her family, and friends shore up for the night, cut off from the outside world. But something comes out of the driving rain and darkness. Something that holds a dark secret so devastating that, in one night, it could wipe out the entire family.
Trapped, Sarah and her brothers and friends must use their heads as well as their physical strength to survive not only the thing that is hunting them down one by one – but their own entrapment as the besieged group turns in on itself. Can they survive the horror stalking them? Or is their enemy already amongst them, and has it always been? Can they survive for 13 hours?
13HRS is slated for release this summer. Co-stars include hottie Isabella Calthorpe, Simon MacCorkindale (”Poltergeist: The Legacy”), John Lynch (Black Death), Sue Scadding (Witchcraft X: Mistress of the Craft), and Tom Felton of Harry Potter fame.
OK, I think that’s enough words to justify the following photos of Atkinson in lingerie:
