Karen Gillan is a Scottish actress. In May 2009, aged 21, she was announced as the actress who will be playing the new companion in the fifth series of the television series Doctor Who.
Gillan gained her first television role in Rebus while still studying at Italia Conti, and has since had parts in The Kevin Bishop Show, Channel 4's Stacked and James Nesbitt's forthcoming film Outcast. While not acting, she has taken on occasional modelling roles, including 2007 London Fashion Week for designer Allegra Hicks' autumn/winter catwalk show.
Gillan was seen in the Doctor Who episode entitled "The Fires of Pompeii" playing a soothsayer. On 29 May 2009, it was announced that Gillan will play the companion to the Eleventh Doctor (portrayed by Matt Smith) from 2010.
Karen has also been a teen horror show called The Well for BBC, written by Melvin Burgess.
Drama The Well features a group of teens renovating a house in Liverpool who uncover a well that is the resting place of a “dark and malevolent force”.
The 4 x 12-minute drama stars new Doctor Who assistant Karen Gillan and will air on BBC2 on consecutive Saturdays up to Halloween.
It will also be available online, where it will link to a “deeply immersive” multi-level game, in which users can explore the house and try to solve a puzzle at the heart of the story.
Basically, it looks fricken cool!
