Karen Gillan reveals her Doctor Who sadness and details of new film

As fabulous fashionistas from around the globe flocked to Glasgow on Monday night for the Scottish Fashion Awards, one flame-haired beauty stood out from the crowd – Karen Gillan.

The stunning Scottish actress has made a name for herself playing the much-loved Amy Pond in Doctor Who, but after shooting her final scene and bowing out of the hit sci-fi drama, how does she really feel about retiring from the iconic role?

She told stv.tv showbiz reporter Gill Harvey: “It was so sad. It was this bittersweet thing cause I’m really excited to move onto other things, I’m actually going on to do a film in Glasgow which I’m really excited about, but yeah it was so sad cause I’m leaving my best friends in a weird way.”

Onwards and upwards and Karen will return to Glasgow in July to film quirky and romantic indie movie Not Another Happy Ending, where she will play a beautiful but eccentric novelist who suffers from writer's block since she found success.

Dressed in a bright yellow shirt dress by Twenty8Twelve, teamed with purple nails and a mulberry lipstick, Karen certainly knows how to make a statement, but she was shocked to be in the running for Scottish Fashion Icon of the Year.

She said: “It would be a huge honour to win an award like that and really unexpected. I honestly didn’t think I would be nominated for anything wearing the clothes I wear.”

It’s no wonder she was delighted when it was announced that she had taken the title.

Bursting with energy, strikingly beautiful and with a personality that leaves you desperate to party with her, we’d say Karen is certainly a worth winner.
