Karen Gillan – Panic Moon
Seemingly getting more attention on Kasterborous than many of our wives this week, new Doctor Who co-star Karen Gillan appears in the Observer today, apparently explaining what itâ€™s like to be envied.
Described by journalist Euan Ferguson as â€œtruly and annoyingly, a lucky, pretty, talented, happy, smart, leggy, ordinary, honest, laughing girl, from a very loving family,â€ Gillan – who will play plucky Amy Pond to Matt Smithâ€™s Eleventh Doctor from Easter Weekend – reveals that when attending her second audition she had to tell the BBC receptionist that it was for a show called Panic Moon, so secretive was the casting.
The eagle-eyed among you will notice that â€œpanic moonâ€ is an anagram for â€œcompanion.â€
Interestingly, there isnâ€™t an awful lot from Fergusonin this interview – a paragraph of introduction and two fat passages of quotes.
Hardly surprising – he was probably wondering how he came to be interviewing such an utterly beautiful, charming, talented and intelligent young woman.
