It’s less than a week before Doctor Who returns to our screens with Series 6, and as per tradition the broadsheets have gone all insightful and produced an extended profile of everyone’s favourite ginger Amy Pond aka Karen Gillan – who has let slip she’d most like to emulate hairy, motor mouthed American comedian  Robin Willams.

Letting the genie out of the bottle (oh very good – Ed) Gillan, told the Daily Telegraph that the Insomnia star is one of the actors whose career she’d most like to have:

“Robin Williams. I want a career like his! I want to be like Robin Williams, really. It’s all the different characters he does, all the different voices.”

Speaking of different voices Gillan has been more than impressed (if not a little overawed) by Who fans on both sides of the Atlantic.

On a promotional trip to the Big Apple, Gillan was stunned at the awaiting reception:

“People had been camping out and people would dress up as me. We didn’t think anyone knew what it was over there.”

The responsibility of being such a recognisable face to many children across the country however is that she tries to forget:

‘The last thing you want to do when you are about to film a scene is think, “Oh my God, so many people are going to watch this.’”

Check the full feature article for more on Gillan’s career, her hopes for the future and what she and Matt get up to everyday on and off set…

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.
