There’s less than a month away from the premiere of Karen Gillan‘s new filck, Guardians of the Galaxy.
On shaving her head for the role: “I was told even before I auditioned that the actress who got this would have to shave her head, and I didn’t think I was gonna get it. So I was like, ‘absolutely, I will shave my head! Sure!’ (laughs). Then like three screen tests later, it was ‘oh God, this might actually happen.’ And then I got the part, and then I thought about it seriously, and I was like, ‘I absolutely want to shave my head for this.’ Because, I mean, the opportunity is too good to pass up.”
On the scariest villain in the film: “It has to be Lee Pace, who plays Ronan the Accuser. He’s the scariest thing I’ve ever seen! Have you seen him? Ohhhh! Oh my God, it’s so intimidating. Also, he’s really tall, so for the first time [in a role] I’m allowed to wear heels, which is quite good. He’s just one of the creepiest, scariest villains I’ve ever seen! (shivers) Ohhhh. It’s horrible. And we’re just creepsters together!”
On Nebula: “I think Nebula’s a really interesting character. What I really like to play around with is how jealous she is as a person. She’s Gamora’s sister, and there’s a lot of sibling rivalry going on. That’s the most interesting aspect about her character to me. So I really played with that and what it can do to a person, because jealousy can consume you and turn you bitter and ugly, and I’ve kind of played with that. And she’s a total sadist. (laughs) She is a lieutenant of Ronan the Accuser, a daughter of Thanos, and sister of Gamora. They are on this holy mission to kind of cleanse the galaxy of all that is week. That is her ultimate objective and what’s been drilled into her as a kid. So she is brainwashed by these people, and she just wants to impress, and achieve, and be as strong as possible. That’s her ultimate goal.”
