Meet Doctor Who’s new assistant

The Observer has a interview with Karen Gillan….

Doctor Who has a new assistant, Amy Pond. Karen Gillan, who plays her, explains what it’s like to be the most envied woman in Britain

She thought she “hadn’t a hope in hell” of securing Amy, so just went for it, without fear.

“Then I got the recall, the second audition. That was when I started sweating. This huge thing. And it was so secretive I couldn’t even tell BBC reception where I was going, had to pretend it was for something called Panic Moon, which is an anagram of companion.” She was the last auditionee, and got the call later that same night that’s still changing her life.
