Karen Gillan is just one of the names tossed about by fans hoping and speculating about which actors they want to appear in Star Wars Episode VII. Now it appears those hopes could be realized... Well, at least in a small, weird way. Gillan, who's most famous for playing Amy Pond in Doctor Who, also portrays Nebula in the upcoming Marvel film Guardians Of The Galaxy. At San Diego Comic-Con last year she revealed that she had shaved her head to play the bald, Alien villainess. Karen recently spoke with Collider about her latest projects and she revealed something interesting:
Collider: "Was it just very liberating to shave your head, or did you have any moments of tears while they were doing it?"
Karen Gillan: "No, I was laughing hysterically. It really hit me when I woke up the next morning. That’s when I was like, “Oh, my god, where’s my hair?!” But also, everyone kept me in good spirit. Everyone was laughing and telling jokes. Marvel are the best company to work for, they really are. They treat you really well. They made my hair into the most incredible well-made wig and they gave it to the Star Wars people. It’s just so funny to think that my hair is made into a wig, next to all these Star Wars monster heads in a warehouse. I thought that was really funny."
So, there you have it. As bizarre as it sounds, Karen Gillan's red hair is somewhere in the Lucasfilm archives, presumably ready to be worn by another actor or actress in a future Star Wars film.
