Karen Gillan – Panic Moon

Karen Gillan. Nice

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 it’s like to be envied.

Described by journalist Euan Ferguson as “truly and annoyingly, a lucky, pretty, talented, happy, smart, leggy, ordinary, honest, laughing girl, from a very loving family,” Gillan – who will play plucky Amy Pond to Matt Smith’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 “panic moon” is an anagram for “companion.”

Interestingly, there isn’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.
