Make Your Mark, Karen

Karen Gillan has revealed that while still adjusting to the media spotlight, it has been an instant ‘shock to the system’ taking on the mantle of the Doctor’s companion.

“It kind of changes your life as soon as you’re announced as playing the part, before anyone’s even seen you. So you’re kind of walking into an already famous part, if you know what I mean. It’s not you that’s made it famous. So what you’ve got to do is put your own sort of mark on it I guess.”

Characteristically, she’s taken it all in her rather leggy stride and has been nothing but positive about the Who experience.

“Everyone’s been really nice and they feel so passionately about it that it makes me really excited to be involved in it.”

Gillan also recalled the moment whilst promoting Doctor Who in America when a fan got down on one knee and tried to make an honest woman of the Amy Pond actress.

“I got proposed to in America by a girl,” she said. “I was quite taken aback by that. She was very nice and all, but I’m not really ready for marriage.”

Doctor Who continues this Saturday with Vincent and the Doctor which airs at 18:40 on BBC1 and BBC HD.
