EA has officially signed Gemma Atkinson of UK psuedo-soap Hollyoaks to act in the full-motion video sequences of Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3.

Somehow, we don't think this will be a Kane-destroying performance.

Gemma will be playing the role of Lt Eva McKenna, a communications officer for the Allies that EA describes as having a "sexy twinkle in her eye and a British stiff upper lip."

"I'm a gamer and the chance to act in one of the best loved videogames was an opportunity I was really keen to explore - especially as Eva is such a strong female character," said Gemma, demonstrating an amazing ability to speak without really saying anything.

"The worlds of gaming and film are getting ever closer and as an actress I wanted to explore this exciting new area of drama, broaden my acting skills and continue the active, outgoing side of my personality that I showed in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!"

Are we being too mean to the undeniably pretty blonde? We do have to admit that Hollyoaks is one of our guiltier pleasures on a Sunday morning, and as far as Command and Conquer FMV sequences go we doubt the game will require any real believability.

The game is set for an Autumn release on the Xbox 360 and PC, but while you wait you can read our hands-on preview with Red Alert 3 or check out the press picture below and let us know what you think in the forums.
