Karen Gillan is Homeless!

Karen Gillan has admitted that she doesn’t have anywhere to live following the completion of filming on Doctor Who (I’m pretty sure several million Doctor Who fans are now clearing out that spare bedroom.)

The actress admitted to Female First that she has no idea where she’s heading next and couldn’t be more thrilled about it:

“After everything being so structured, it’s the best feeling in the world. I have put my belongings in storage, so I don’t have a house anymore I love travelling so I’ll see where I end up.”

It’s that free spirited mind-set that as stopped her panicking about the seemingly big transition from TV to the big screen with filming on her first movie Not Another Happy Ending – a romantic comedy set in Glasgow about a miserable writer who, after the success of her first novel, becomes happy, forcing her publisher to intervene, make her life miserable again and get her working on the follow up novel – about to begin:

‘Doctor Who has been amazing for opening up doors, but I don’t think about the transition from TV to film. It’s best not to keep thinking about that big leap people keep talking about. From an acting point of view it’s no different.”

Recently, Karen found herself walking le croisette at the Cannes Film Festival. An experience which seemed to baffle the 24 year-old actress:

“Part of me finds this whole thing hilarious because it’s so decadent and ridiculous, with everyone going crazy for a few days.”

Crazy with the heat, no doubt…

About the Author

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.
