Karen Gillan as 1960s supermodel Jean Shrimpton

An Ovation for “We’ll Take Manhattan”

If you’re one of the many who have been looking forward to watching Karen Gillan in We’ll Take Manhattan but have so far been thwarted due to residency in the USA, be frustrated no more – you can catch it this weekend!

As you may recall from our previous coverage, the film stars Aneurin Bernard as David Bailey and Karen Gillan as Jean Shrimpton. Bailey and Shrimpton sparked a photography revolution when they broke free of the confines of studio portrait style magazine spreads and instead took fashion photography to the streets, literally, for British Vogue. They scrapped the awkward poses for real-life scenarios and paved the way for the fashion photographers of today.

Scheduled for broadcast on the Ovation US cable network this Saturday, we’re delighted to share with you some videos of Karen Gillan discussing the TV movie. These clips differ from those we might have seen already and are exclusive to Ovation!
