Back in July 2016, Karen and her “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” co-stars attending the annual San Diego International Comic Con during which they were all photographed by Matthias Clamer for Entertainment Weekly. Thanks to my good friend Kayla (www.karengillan.net), I have been able to get my hands onto new high-quality outtakes, which you can now view in our photo gallery.

In our latest issue of Glass, with the theme of Change, we featured Scottish actor Karen Gillan rocketed to superstardom in her role as Amy Pond, one of Doctor Who’s most memorable and charismatic sidekicks of late, and it would seem as though Karen Gillan was destined to become a sci-fi icon. Born in Inverness, Scotland Gillan, now 29, maintained her momentum when her time in one of Britain’s most beloved TV shows ended, having a wide range of roles in a range of film and TV roles.

Cast recently in NTSF:SD:SUV:: a US comedy series that allowed Gillan to exercise her funny bone, she would make appearances in a string of movies that strengthened her foothold as a fearless screen ingenue synonymous with adventure, the paranormal and outer space, movies which one after the other boasted increasingly impressive production values.

Gillan has acted alongside the best of Hollywood over the past few years -with stars such as Tom Hanks and Emma Roberts in this year’s The Circle, and John Travolta and Ethan Hawke in last year’s In a Valley of Violence. However, it was 2014’s sci-fi supernova hit Guardians of the Galaxy, which cast Gillan as Nebula, an out-of-this-world blue-skinned assassin, alongside the likes of Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana, that really put the actress on the international movie map.

NY Post’s Alexa“I feel like I’m a walking Scottish stereotype,” Karen Gillan says with a lilt, sitting in a Manhattan hotel bar, sipping a coffee. It’s something only a Scot could get away with saying, but it’s hard to argue with her. She has fiery red hair, today cropped to the shoulders, and pale skin that looks as if it might turn to ash in certain latitudes. She speaks in a clever, friendly burr. “Don’t” is delivered as “doan-t, “cool” as “kewl.” The actress once posted a photo of herself on Twitter wearing a red tartan onesie. She’s even been known to force her beloved haggis onto unsuspecting victims. “It’s not so easy to get you Americans onboard with it,” she laughs. But Hollywood is quite onboard with Gillan. The 29-year-old has major roles in two high-profile movies out this spring: “The Circle,” alongside Tom Hanks, and Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” In the former, she plays a spokesperson for a morally questionable Internet giant. The latter finds her reprising the role of Nebula, a grumpy, blue-skinned alien villain who was defeated in the first film. The character was originally meant to die in that installment. But after a rewrite, Nebula survived — albeit down an arm — and returns in “Vol. 2” with a meatier role that revolves around her troubled relationship with her sister, Gamora (Zoe Saldana).

She also had to shave her head — though only half of it this time around. “The under half,” she explains. “I have an ‘undershave,’ which is the grossest word in the world.” But it might help the actress avoid the embarrassing misunderstandings that dogged her when she went full cue-ball for the first “Guardians.” “People were calling me ‘sir’ quite a lot,” she recalls. “There was one time I was lying in a hotel room in the dark, and someone came into the room and realized I was there and said, ‘Oh, I’m sorry, sir.’ I didn’t want to make a thing of it, so I just pretended to be a man. I said in a deep voice, ‘No problem.’ That was my low point.”
