Karen Gillan: ‘Oculus’ wraps in Alabama


‘Oculus’, starring Katee Sackhoff & Karen Gillan, filming underway in Alabama
Karen Gillan and Katee Sackhoff are currently in Alabama for Oculus,
a horror film about a woman who believes her family was killed by an
antique mirror and not her brother who was charged with the crime.
The movie, which has only been filming in Baldwin and Mobile Counties for about three weeks, already celebrated their wrap party and will complete lensing on Saturday, according to Alabama Film.’

Karen recently took an impromptu road trip from Alabama to New Orleans with one of her other co-stars, Brenton Thwaites. She shared
some of the adventure with her Twitter followers, writing, “Crazy night
in new Orleans. Got back to the ritz by donkey. I love that sentence.”

First look at Karen Gillan in “Oculus”

Following her adventures in Utah, as well as taking Manhattan twice (once with some Angels and once as Jean Shrimpton), Karen Gillan seems to have gone for the US in a big way as she eyes her future career prospects. Instead of heading straight to Hollywood, though, she has been filming Oculus in Alabama with fellow sci-fi powerhouse Katee Sackhoff (most famous as Starbuck in the reimagined Battlestar Galactica but surely just as famous as One Of Many People in Halloween: Resurrection and for appearing alongside Michelle Ryan as they both fought for the title of The Bionic Woman).

Oculus is a forthcoming horror film from Mike Flanagan, the director of the very highly regarded chiller Absentia, who posted the very first publicity shot from the film on his Twitter page this evening. The promotional still features Karen, her co-star Brenton Thwaites and a sinister mirror that may, or may not, be responsible for the deaths of their parents. Definitely one to keep an eye on.

Karen Gillan Shares Life Post-DOCTOR WHO with Craig Ferguson

Karen Gillan may be gone from Doctor Who, but it looks like she’ll always have a place on CBS’ The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

On her twenty-fifth birthday, the actress returned for third appearance on the late-night talk show to promote the Doctor Who Series Seven, Part One DVD set that was recently released.  A clip of her final on-screen appearance in the episode “The Angels Take Manhattan” was shown, which featured the sad graveyard scene where Gillan’s character Amy Pond allows herself to be touched by a Weeping Angel and disappears back in time.

As Ferguson displayed the DVD set to the audience, Gillan remarked that star Matt Smith complained about her being too heavy for him for the set’s cover image of the Doctor carrying an unconscious Amy Pond.  “He’s a thin gentleman,” quipped Ferguson with a cheeky smile.  “I mean, very attractive but he’s kinda got that 1970s David Bowie thing going on.”

Gillan then shared what was going on in her life since leaving Doctor Who.  After filming Oculus, a “kind of horror” movie, in Alabama, she’s obtained a legal visa to remain in the States and has moved to Los Angeles.

The actress later sang a Gaelic song with Ferguson’s robot sidekick Geoff Peterson and was warned by Ferguson about the Los Angeles sun affecting her pale skin.  “Yeah,” replied Gillan, “I’m gonna get more freckles and then they’ll join up and then I’ll be completely ginger.”

Karen Gillan

The second episode of the seventh series of Doctor Who premieres tonight. “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship” is one of the few remaining episodes to feature the leggy Karen Gillan as Amy Pond.

I will be back later with my thoughts on “Dinosaurs on a Spaceship.”
