Gillan Becomes Art Ambassador

Karen Gillan is laying a pathway down for future companions and Doctors by return to her roots to become Eden Court Theatre’s Arts Education Ambassador.

Gillan first trod the boards at the Inverness Theatre back when she was a pupil at Charleston Academy and in the theatre’s new season brochure said:

“Eden Court provides great opportunities for studying theatre, dance and film-making. I did a lot of my initial training with them, including my higher drama and completing my London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art certification.

“I had my first real experience of acting with Eden Court and it was their knowledge and experience that encouraged me to pursue a career in the arts.”

Theatre director Colin Marr said:

“Karen’s appointment is great news for the theatre. It’s very good of her to become its ambassador. For us, the education work is such a big part of what we do here, and I’m not sure everyone understands the breadth of it, so having Karen endorse it will help.”

Along with Miss Gillan’s appointment the theatre have also released highlights of their Spring season including a production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman, a return visit from the Rambert Dance Company and Swan Lake on Ice.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
