Karen Gillan says she is a lot like her character in her new film Not Another Happy Ending. The 25-year-old actress and former model admitted to being neurotic, emotional and a bit clumsy, just like Jane Lockhart, the part she plays in the rom-com. Karen said that she missed being Doctor’s Who sidekick Amy Pond, but still kept in touch with soon-to-be ex-Timelord Matt Smith. She was sporting a shaved head, part of the requirements for playing the part of Nebula in the upcoming Marvel Comics superhero movie, Guardians of the Galaxy.
Karen Gillan will not be in the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special, she will just watch it. The 50th anniversary will unite Matt Smith and Jenna Colman with former Doctor and companion David Tennant and Billie Piper.
Also, the former Doctor Who companion announced she is drafting a script to her very own movie… after playing a novelist in Not Another Happy Ending. She also admits the profession is close to her heart.
