Doctor Who's Karen Gillan Talks Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy
Star has traded in the Tardis for a talking raccoon...
Karen Gillan has spoken out about her upcoming role in Marvel flick Guardians of the Galaxy, calling it “really, really funny.”
"I always had total faith in the project, because the people who are making it are so brilliant, and have a long history of great films," Gillan told MTV News US. "So I knew it was in great hands."
And Karen added that Marvel fans should except a different tone for the film, which follows the stellar success of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers.
"I just think it's a new direction for Marvel, it's really, really funny," the former Doctor Who star explained. "It's not taking itself seriously at all. It's tongue in cheek. And just to see people be excited about that new tone is cool."
Gillan, who was required to shave her head for the role of Nebula, said of her character: "I find her hilarious. But she can't find herself hilarious, that's not scary."
She particularly felt the absence of her barnet when starring alongside longhaired Zoe Saldana.
"It was the saddest thing in the world," Gillan said. "They'd use a big industrial wind machine when filming her, but when it was on me, it was like, 'Turn the wind machine off,' and it was like beeeeup."
