10 Reasons We Love… Karen Gillan

Jen P

1. That blazing red hair


2. Those piercing eyes


3. That adorable pout


4. And she really rocks a pixie cut


She actually shaved her head for her role as Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy. The girl is committed to her career!

5. Also, her Scottish accent is ADORBZ

6. And she’s not afraid to stand for a good cause

7. She can play scary

Here she is as Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy:


And here’s a trailer for Oculus:

That light bulb? No. Just no.

8. But she can also be sweet:


Check her out in Not Another Happy Ending and as Amy Pond in Doctor Who.

9. And she’s funny!

Just watch this hilarious preview for Selfie:

It makes me sad all over again that the show got cancelled. But great news for the fans: the final unaired episodes are now available for viewing on Hulu.

10. And finally, you know she can act, but did you know she could also direct?


She recently wrote and directed the short film, Coward, which stars her friend and star of iZombie, Rose McIver. It went on to win Best Independent Short at The Independent Filmmakers Showcase at the Beverly Hills Film Festival 2015 and she submitted it to the Edinberg Film Festival where she also served as a judge.
