It has been reported that Karen Gillan features on the front cover of this week’s Shortlist Magazine, which is handed out every week in major cities across the United Kingdom, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, and Glasgow. The full interview is available to read online, and Karen also took part in a photo shoot.
How does it feel being a role model?
“That’s a tricky one. You’ve got to get the right balance I think. You can’t live your life thinking about how it’s going to affect everybody else. You’ve got to have your own life and do what you want to do, but it is something I take into consideration and I wouldn’t want to fall around drunk or anything.”
What’s it like working with Matt Smith?
“Matt is so focused he really inspires me. That sounds really cheesy, but it’s true. I’ve never met someone so focused and he never slacks off. He’s really driven. And his approach to acting is really creative. Rather than just reeling off the lines, he changes it every time. It’s an intense day. He takes it very seriously, but that’s not to say it’s not fun. In fact, part of our taking it seriously is messing around between takes, because I feel like it’s us staying in character and being silly.”
