As Britain sheds a tear over the exit of Karen Gillan from Doctor Who this year, it seems as though she is missing the show as much as it is missing her.
Gillan – who is set to leave her role as the Doctor’s sidekick, Amy Pond , along with her on-screen husband Rory Williams, played by Arthur Darvil in what show writer, Steven Moffat has described as a truly heartbreaking exit, during the fifth episode of series seven of the iconic BBC sci-fi drama – was out and about for the night at the Scottish Fashion Awards, where she spoke to stv.tv about leaving her role.
“It was so sad. It was this bittersweet thing cause I’m really excited to move onto other things, I’m actually going on to do a film in Glasgow which I’m really excited about, but yeah it was so sad cause I’m leaving my best friends in a weird way.”
Fans of the stunning red-head will be pleased to know however, that she won’t be absent from our screens for too long. Gillan is set to return to her Scottish roots to film a new romantic movie – Not Another Happy Ending – in Glasgow, in which she will play an eccentric novelist suffering from writers block, following a huge bout of success in he career.
Gillan was attending the awards, dressed in a Twenty8Twelve shirt dress unaware until the night that she had been nominated for the award for Scottish Fashion Icon of the Year.
She said: “It would be a huge honour to win an award like that and really unexpected. I honestly didn’t think I would be nominated for anything wearing the clothes I wear.”
Gillan’s shock of being nominated soon turned to joy, when the Scottish actress was announced the winner of the award!
