Karen Gillan recently told the London Evening Standard (a free newspaper for London commuters) that she doubts she will ever have such a fun job after her time on Doctor Who as Amy Pond. Talking about future appearances, the actress told that she did not want to continue doing cameo “pop-ups” in Doctor Who as it would take away from her dramatic exit:
“Once she’s gone, she’s gone. I want people to remember the Amy Pond era as a good one.”
“It’s been so amazing. I don’t think I will ever have a job quite so fun ever again.”
What’s interesting to note is that the use of her tenses recently does not suggest that she won’t pop up in some form during Series 7; Gillan may well be an important part of next year’s series leading up to her final proper goodbye.
As you may know, Gillan is currently appearing in Inadmissible Evidence at London’s Donmar theatre, of which she revealed how it had changed her.
“It really opened my eyes to so many things. It’s good experience to get an instant response, the buzz, adrenaline. There’s nothing like that feeling. It’s a really scary thing to do.”
Whatever she does in future, we’re sure it will be great – best of luck, Karen!
