Doctor Who’s glamorous new star Karen Gillan gave a Q&A for her fans at the BFI on London’s Southbank on Wednesday.
The event was packed with kids due to the half-term holiday but we attended and asked Karen what it was like working with the new Doctor, Matt Smith.
She’s clearly loving it as she gushed: ‘Matt is amazing. You never know how he is going to act a certain scene so it keeps me on my toes. He’s also a great kisser. I hope we get to kiss again!’
But she revealed playing the Doctor’s Assistant Amy Pond is harder than you’d expect saying: ‘Lots of the aliens are added into the scenes afterwards so we make it on a green screen. I have to pretend to be frightened of tennis balls that mark where the aliens heads will be.’
Still, it’s a small sacrifice if it means she gets to kiss Matt afterward.
And acting on the green screen hasn’t put her off wearing the colour, which is a relief as it is a great colour for Summer.
Check out the green maxi dress at Evans if you feel inspired by Karen’s look, which would see you from day to night and is just £27.
It’s great to have a new style icon like Karen on Saturday night TV.
