Scottish actress and director Karen Gillan will receive the 2017 Maui Film Festival Rising Star Award. The 18th annual festival will be held from June 21-25 at the Wailea Resort in Maui, Hawaii.

Gillan has worked in both comedy and drama in films and on television. She is set to star opposite Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in Sony’s “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” set to release Dec. 20. Gillan recently reprised her role of Nebula in Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” and co-starred opposite Emma Watson and Tom Hanks in the motion picture “The Circle.” She also completed production on her feature film directorial debut, “The Party’s Just Beginning,” which she wrote and stars in. Her other credits include “The Big Short” and “Doctor Who”.

“Perfection and synchronicity in the Universe work in mysterious ways. Among them is the opportunity to honor Karen Gillan with the Maui Film Festival’s 2017 Rising Star Award — under the stars and lit by the moon at the Celestial Cinema — for the way her work has enriched us all through her eclectic and powerful performances to date and, I’m sure, in many triumphant decades yet to come,” said Barry Rivers, founder and director of the festival.

The Maui Film Festival Rising Star Award honors a young film artist. Previous honorees include Brie Larson, Scott Eastwood, and Garrett Hedlund. The award will be presented June 24 at the Celestial Cinema.

Earlier today (June 5), Karen attended the Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup 2017, a charity polo match in Singapore. She joined Prince Harry on stage to hand him – and his team-mates – the winning trophy. Karen looked absolutely ravishing! High-quality images have been added to our gallery – thank you to my friend Lora (www.lucy-boynton.net) for sending these my way.

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.”
