Karen Gillan to Attend Atlanta Comic Con

I’m starting to wonder if Karen Gillan kept the spare keys to the TARDIS because she is everywhere at the minute.

Not satisfied with staring in a massive  hit horror film (Oculus), a cornerstone of Marvel’s phase two films (Guardians of the Galaxy) and now having her own U.S sitcom (Selfie) the Scottish star best known to us as Amy Pond is also hitting up the Atlanta Wizard World Comic Con this month.

May 31st is the day to mark in your diaries if you’re planning on going. You will have the chance for meet and greets and photo ops a well as a Q & A session which would be the ideal time to ask her just how she is managing to take over the world in a dozen different ways at the same time.

Gillan joins other top celebrities, including Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Jon Bernthal and Michael Rooker of The Walking Dead (partly set in Atlanta), James Marsters (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Torchwood), Jason David Frank (Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers) and a great many others who will be at the Atlanta Comic Con.

If you are going, drop us a line and let us know how it goes: Con stories are always fun especially Who-related Con tales so don’t be shy! What has been your best convention story? Fill us in on the details below.

    I’ve managed to see some stuff online with Matt and Karen at recent cons. They are brilliant together. Why is Karen’s quite astonishing US success not getting any publicity in the UK? She is in a huge hit horror film, part of one of the biggest global summer blockbusters ( and according to the director the standout in the film) and has secured a full series of a TV show on network television in America as the lead and which will be written around her. Maybe the show won’t be a hit but just think what a great achievement that is in itself, to be cast over all of the American actresses who wanted the part. Instead everyone is flapping about how awful David Tennant’s American accent is in his US show and how bad the trailer is and how Tennant has been a failure in the US yet again. Typically the media would rather gloat over the humiliation of someone, rather than celebrating the burgeoning success of homegrown talent.
