THE Scots actress revealed that she may have to go bald once more for her part as Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy.
FILM star Karen Gillan is dreading having to have her head shaved for a second time .
The Scot, who jetted into Scotland to feast on Haggis at Christmas , has been growing her hair for two years after she went bald for her role as Nebula in sci-fi film Guardians of the Galaxy.
Now, the former Doctor Who star is getting twitchy as film director James Gunn gets set to put the second Guardians of the Galaxy film into production.
Karen, 27, who moved to the US last year, hopes graphic artists might be able to fake her bald look and save her having the chop again.
Speaking in Indianapolis, she said: “I have a physical and emotional attachment to this hair. We’ll have to see if I have to shave it. Maybe CGI will have developed further by the time we shoot it.”
Inverness-born Karen, who played Amy Pond to Matt Smith’s Doctor Who, gave new Time Lord Peter Capaldi her seal of approval.
She added: “I really like Capaldi. It was hard for me to accept a new man but I was like, ‘He’s really doing it’.”
HBO drama pilot The Devil You Know (working title), co-written by Orange Is The New Black creator Jenji Kohan, Bruce Miller and Tracy Miller, is building out its cast. Joining previously announced Eddie Izzard, Nadia Alexander and Ismenia Mendes in series regular roles are Ever Carradine, Damien Molony, Julian Rhind Tutt, Matthew James Thomas, Nigel Lindsay, Ewen Bremner, Karen Gillan, Hannah Nordberg, Naian Gonzalez Norvind and Zawe Ashton. Tapped as recurring are Will Pullen, Kate Nash, Seana Kofoed, Mary Mouser and Beanie Feldstein.
Described as a provocative period drama, The Devil You Know explores the circumstances around one of the most compelling chapters in American history — the infamous Salem Witch Trials in 17th century New England, where intolerance and repression set neighbor against neighbor and led a town to mass hysteria.
Carradine will play Ann Putnam Sr., Thomas’ (Izzard) wife, who is sickly but strong among her peers. Molony is Robert Putnam, Thomas’ (Izzard) eldest son. Tutt plays Minister Samuel Parris, a hard-line Puritan, who isn’t very popular, until the accusations start. Thomas is Henry Paine, a newcomer from England. Lindsay plays Dr. Griggs, a man of science and reason. Bremner is Israel Porter, patriarch of the powerful Porter clan. Gillan plays Jane Porter, youngest daughter of Israel Porter. Nordberg, repped by Paradigm and manager Marnie Cooper, is Betty Parris, Samuel Parris’ daughter. Norvind, repped by Anthony & Assoc. and Schreck Rose Dapello & Adams, is Samuel Parris’ niece. Ashton, repped by Troika, LINK and Luber/Rokin, is the Parris’ slave brought from Barbados. She truly loves Betty, whom she’s cared for since birth. Pullen recurs as Moses Cooper, Nash as Bridget Bishop, Mouser as Earth Fenn, Feldstein as Lydia Harris.
Production on the pilot — a co-production between HBO and Lionsgate TV — is slated to take place in Boston in the spring.
Kofoed is repped by Cornerstone in NY, AKA In LA and Meghan Schumacher Management. Pullen is repped by UTA and Anonymous Content. Mouser is with CESD and Authentic. Alexander is repped by Paradigm. Feldstein is repped by Paradigm and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
HD screencaptures from the final two episodes of Selfie have been added to the gallery – I am absolutely gutted that this is over, I love the show and feel it didn’t get the ending it deserved.
I have added a handful of new photoshoot images, and replaced several shoots with HQ images.
I’ve updated a few of the event albums in the gallery with additional HQ images.
