Birthday Girl: Karen Gillan

Quick birthday shoutout to Karen Gillan who played Doctor Who companion Amy Pond. She turns 25 today which just highlights just how freaking young she is especially in light of her former co-stars, Arthur Darvill and Matt Smith, both turning 30 last year. Then again, not really a big surprise since everyone had already commented on how young she was when she was cast in the role all those years ago. Along with Darvill, Gillan was the longest running Who companion of the modern series. Their last appearance on the show was just a couple months ago.

While it was sad to see her go, it's heartening to see her involved with more than a few projects. She starred in a couple of TV movies which aired in Britain earlier this year, We'll Take Manhattan and In Love with Coward. She will then be appearing in the following two films with release dates still to be determined: Not Another Happy Ending and Oculus. The latter film is slated for 2014 release and also stars Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff.

Thanks for reading. Feel free to drop me a line. Instead of being Anonymous though, pick a name. Any name would do. Thanks again!
