No-One Notices Karen!
Karen Gillan has told the Daily Express that she gets almost no attention from Doctor Who fans she passes in the streets:
â€œThe fans are mainly men, you know, and a lot of children. Itâ€™s 24-7 for him [Matt Smith]. I get it a lot of the time when Iâ€™m on my own but not so much when Iâ€™m with him, strangely. Youâ€™d think theyâ€™d think, â€˜Ooh the Doctor and his assistantâ€™ but they just donâ€™t notice me.â€
I’d like to think that it’s because Doctor Who fans are nothing but distinguished gentlemen who can often be seen riding in Hackney carriages wearing fine threads and monocles – rather than just common or garden shy nerds.
Her co-star and street walking partner Matt Smith has also given Miss Gillan a rather unflattering nickname:
â€œItâ€™s Plural Chins…There are two apparently.â€
What? I dropped my monocle in my lattÃ©!
