Former Doctor Who Companion Karen Gillan Shaven New Look!

Although the stunning actress had arrived at the event and made a previous appearance with a full head of hair, it turned out that she was in fact wearing a wig (not for the first time, of course!)

Describing her new hairstyle (can you call it that?) the one-time Amy Pond said:

It’s liberating. I think everyone here should shave their heads.

Gillan will be playing the civilization-destroying Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy, which according to co-star Zoe Saldana, is 85% complete. We await promo shots of Gillan in full supervillain outfit with our tongues hanging out interest.

    First Matt Smith, then Karen Gillan. Next, Steven Moffat will shave his head.

  3. I just hope she gave her gorgeous red mane to a charity that makes wigs for kids getting chemo!
