Gemma Arterton moves Spanish lover, 19, into her London flat and hires a language teacher

They say the language of love is universal, but that hasn’t stopped Bond girl Gemma Arterton running into a few communication problems with her new Spanish boyfriend.

The couple have just moved in together – but are having such problems understanding each other that 22-year-old Gemma has had to hire a translator.

The actress met 19-year-old stuntman Eduardo Munoz on the Moroccan set of the £50million blockbuster Prince Of Persia last month, where he was employed to teach her how to ride horses.

They hit it off immediately, despite the language barrier, and the 6ft 2in action man moved into Gemma’s two-bedroom flat in Crouch End, North London, last week.

A source on the film – which has now shifted production to Pinewood Studios, just outside London – said: ‘Gemma is crazy about Eduardo. They fell for each other pretty much on day one and language didn’t stand in the way of their feelings.

‘But now Gemma wants to take it to the next level. She has invited Eduardo to live with her in London and has hired a language tutor who is teaching her Spanish and him English.

‘Her Spanish is non-existent and his English is rudimentary, so she’s been on set this week saying how much fun it is to have a translator who is teaching them to communicate properly for the first time.’

Eduardo’s work on the film should have ended when the movie switched from Morocco to England, but Gemma has insisted more work be found for him.

‘She is glowing and incredibly happy. She looks and acts like a woman who is head over heels in love. She and Eduardo have made no attempt to hide their romance. They are always kissing and cuddling.

‘She told me she can’t wait to learn Spanish so she can go to Madrid and meet his family.’

Gemma ended her 18-month relationship with animator John Nolan, 27, earlier this summer, as her fame began to grow.

After making her movie debut in last year’s St Trinian’s revival, she beat 1,500 other young hopefuls to land the role of Daniel Craig’s love interest in the 22nd 007 movie Quantum Of Solace.

She is also starring in the current BBC adaptation of Tess Of The D’Urbervilles and played Elizabeth Bennet in ITV1’s Lost In Austen.

The daughter of a welder and a cleaner from Gravesend in Kent, Gemma now commands £1.5million a film, less than a year after graduating from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London.

Prince William and Prince Harry will see Gemma star as the kick-boxing Agent Fields when they attend the world premiere of Quantum Of Solace in London next month.

Gemma on the red carpet: The star is 'excited about meeting the Princes'

The source said: ‘Gemma is so excited about meeting the Princes. She was joking on set the other day that she might have a crush on Prince William if she wasn’t already in love with Eduardo. She intends to take Eduardo to the premiere.’

Eduardo grew up in a small village 40 miles from Madrid, where horse-riding was a way of life. His mother Mercedes, secretary of Madrid’s Carriage Riding Club, last night said that she was unaware who Eduardo was dating.

She said: ‘He’s not told me anything about a girlfriend. He’s living and working abroad. What he does with his private life is up to him.’

Gemma’s publicist was last night unavailable for comment. Her acting agents said they could not comment on her private life.
