Karen graces the cover of the November Issue of Vera Magazine (Virgin Atlantic). She talks “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle“, “The Party’s Just Beginning” and Nebula in both “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” and “Avengers: Infinity War“. Be sure to check out bits of her interview below, as well as digital scans and outtakes which I’ve just added in our gallery.
About ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’: “It was my favourite film when I was a kid and I even had a version of the board game, so I just couldn’t believe it when I got the audition, I was like: ‘They’re remaking “Jumanji”?!’ And I felt a little bit protective over it, but also really excited to see what they were going to do with it. I didn’t expect to be in it! […] It’s very challenging to shoot in the deep jungle. There were mosquitoes everywhere, I was getting bitten left, right and centre! My legs just got covered in these bites and they were so swollen. I’m sure they’re going to have VFX them out.”
About moving to New York City: “It’s the greatest city in the world […] It’s definitely more my vibe than LA. I don’t know how to drive and I’m pale and Scottish, so I can’t really go out in the sun — LA’s not catered to me. However, New York is just amazing and vibrant and full of life. And there are people from other professions unlike in Hollywood, which is so nice.”
About ‘The Party’s Just Beginning’: “I had to change [the title] because Tupperware’s a brand name, and they did not want their name on our film, which is understandable. It’s about a girl dealing with the suicide of her best friend and so it’s not the most uplifting of subject matters.”
