Karen Gillan has remarked that she loved playing pregnant Amy Pond in Amyâ€™s Choice, the seventh episode of this yearâ€™s series of Doctor Who.
The actress, who played the played the alternate version of Amy with remarkable conviction, commented:
â€œI really enjoyed it â€“ it was my favourite part of filming…..I had a big bump. It felt ridiculous and it made me act ridiculously.”
Whilst the scenes by no means gave her anything as severe as â€œsympathy painsâ€, Karen found herself taking the role to an almost method level:
â€œIt was fun but it really affected me. I became quite attached to it â€“ I found myself rubbing it and it made me feel really mature…Everyone else was larking about like normal but I felt really old all of a sudden.â€
Gillan played the role of a pregnant Amy wonderfully and added a real depth to her character that many actresses might have glossed over. She also went on to give a cryptic description of the final two parter of the new Doctor Who series, calling it â€œemotionalâ€. If all the rumours doing the rounds are true, we believe her…
