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.”
