New James Bond Girl Gemma Arteron who plays Agent Fields in next month's Quantum of Solace was born with six fingers on each hand. "It's my little oddity that I'm really proud of," she said to Esquire magazine. "It makes me different." Different indeed. The condition, called Polydactyly, occurs in 1 of every 500 births.
However, the film will not showcase this phenomenon. As a little girl, her surplus fingers were tied with wire which eventually causes the boneless protrusions to fall off. She still bares bumpy scars where her extra appendages once were.
