Karen Gillan has remarked that she loved playing pregnant Amy Pond in Amy’s Choice, the seventh episode of this year’s series of Doctor Who.

Doctor Who companion Amy Pond as played by Karen GillanThe actress, who played the played the alternate version of Amy with remarkable conviction, commented:

“I really enjoyed it – it was my favourite part of filming…..I had a big bump. It felt ridiculous and it made me act ridiculously.”

Whilst the scenes by no means gave her anything as severe as “sympathy pains”, Karen found herself taking the role to an almost method level:

“It was fun but it really affected me. I became quite attached to it – I found myself rubbing it and it made me feel really mature…Everyone else was larking about like normal but I felt really old all of a sudden.”

Gillan played the role of a pregnant Amy wonderfully and added a real depth to her character that many actresses might have glossed over. She also went on to give a cryptic description of the final two parter of the new Doctor Who series, calling it “emotional”. If all the rumours doing the rounds are true, we believe her…
