With departures confirmed, replacements hired and new roles to promote, all that’s left to do is to enjoy the bittersweet moment where Amy departs from the TARDIS – and according to Karen Gillan, it’s a belter.
Speaking to Total Film from Cannes – where she’s been drumming up publicity for her upcoming role in Glasgow based rom-com Not Another Happy Ending – she’s promised that her exit will be ‘unexpected’ and ‘emotional’.
“I literally couldn’t read it without crying. It was the most highly charged read-through I’ve ever experienced. But I couldn’t have asked for a better exit. I don’t think it’ll be what people expect.”
Perhaps something else that people aren’t expecting is a Doctor Who movie. With the rumour mill crawling to a stop after David Yates first registered his interest in bringing the Doctor to the big screen Total Film took the opportunity (well, it is Cannes) to broach the subject with Karen:
“I think it would be great in a franchise-y sort of way. I’d look forward to sitting down and watching it.”
But would she get involved if offered a role?
“Oh, who knows? I guess you can only cross that bridge when you come to it!”
