A trio of Doctor Who stars have been getting with the times recently by signing up to Instagram. Better late than never, right?
Firstly, former Amy Pond actress Karen Gillan got the ball rolling at @karengillanofficial, followed by Rose Tyler herself, Billie Piper, whose photos can be found at @bpiperofficial. Last but certainly not least, everybody’s favourite renegade Time Lady, Michelle Gomez, has been getting snap happy at @msgomez66, so make sure you say something nice by giving them all a follow!
Originally released in 2013, the indie romcom stars the Amy Pond actress as Jane Lockhart, a talented writer who becomes too happy to complete her latest novel. When her publisher embarks on an ill-fated campaign to save her from her bout of writer’s block, their relationship is destined to become much more than professional. It was written by David Solomons and directed by John McKay.
The movie is now available to purchase for £3.99 in a special bundle which also includes an array of interviews, deleted scenes, a making of documentary and more. You can check out an exclusive BTS clip in which Karen attempts to get to grips with a plant pot, below. Duck!
In addition, We are Colony are hosting two great competitions including the chance to win a limited edition press book of the film signed by Karen Gillan and a necklace, handmade in Scotland by designed Bonnie Bling. Click here to find out how to enter, and enjoy the film!
Written and directed by Adam McKay, the film is based on Michael Lewis’ book of the same name and revolves around the financial crisis of 2007–2010. Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell star as four men who made millions from the global economic meltdown.
No further details about Karen’s role have been revealed but she took to Twitter earlier this week after an “amazingly fun day” filming. It’s due to be released in 2016.
Karen Gillan’s Doctor Who days might be over but she’s still as busy as she ever was in the TARDIS.
The actress, who played the Doctor’s companion Amy Pond, has been making various public appearances in the US recently to promote her new sitcom Selfie, which premiered on 30th September.
Amongst her interviews and press junkets, she was a guest on the late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! and you can see a snippet of it in the player below.
In Selfie, Karen stars as Eliza Dooley, a social media obsessed 20-something whose online image is tarnished when a video of her humiliating breakup goes viral. It airs in the US on ABC on Tuesdays at 8/7c. It’s unknown when/if it will be picked up by a channel in the UK.

Karen Gillan has admitted that it was “a surreal experience” to film her cameo in Matt Smith’s final Doctor Who episode.
The actress briefly returned to her role as Amy Pond in ‘The Time of the Doctor’ last Christmas for the Eleventh Doctor’s emotional regeneration scene. She has told Entertainment Weekly recently that “it was so weird” to go back. “I spent three very important years of my life on that TV show,” she said. “So to go back and be on someone else’s TARDIS was just a really weird sensation.”
She explained “It was like being on the outside looking in but also knowing that life is OK after you leave Doctor Who. So it was an interesting experience plus it was important to me that I was there for Matt’s final moments – me and Jenna were hugging and crying!”
Karen’s latest film, Oculus, is now in cinemas in the US – watch its official trailer HERE.
The actress shaved her hair off for her portrayal of the alien and she unveiled her new look at Comic Con last year. The new pic shows the supervillain in all her glory and she’s also glimpsed in the official trailer for the movie.
Guardians of the Galaxy is released in August. Are you excited for Karen’s new project?
