Life in the Day

Karen Gillan is Amy Pond in Doctor WhoGorgeous Doctor Who co-star Karen Gillan appears in the Sunday Times this weekend in their regular “Life in the Day” feature – an example of how the mundane clashes with the seemingly glamourous world of showbiz.

The Amy Pond actress is certainly aware of the importance of her new starring role to legions of Doctor Who fans around the world, and is taking the task of interpreting her character as seriously as you would expect:

Every time I pick up a script I’m like: “Oh my God, how am I going to do that?” Amy’s a human girl who’s experiencing the most mind-blowing alien things. There’s always a moment when you think: “This is going to take some serious acting to make it truthful.”

She might be about to become the most recognisable redhead on TV, but apparently Karen Gillan isn’t that easy to spot when she goes out and about with her co-star, Matt Smith…

Dinner is a sandwich and a packet of crisps from Tesco. Matt and I do this nearly every day. He always has egg and cress and I go for deep-filled ham, cheese and pickle. He gets recognised everywhere he goes, but I’m pretty anonymous at the moment. People have started sending me pictures of myself, though. It’s quite weird when you open a letter and see your face.
