While promoting her latest film, Gunpowder Milkshake which premiered on Netflix in the US, Karen Gillan talked about her role as the feisty and misunderstood sister of Gamora, Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy with The Hollywood Reporter.
The Scottish actor, who is perhaps most famous for her role as Amy Pond in one of the longest series running to date, Doctor Who, got her big break in Hollywood when she secured the role of Nebula, in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy followed by Jumanji and will soon be seen in Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder and the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
James Gunn, the director, long associated with Marvel Studios, announced that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will probably be his last Marvel film. Dave Bautista, who essays the role of Drax the Destroyer has already announced his intentions of retiring from his role after this film.
Gillan told the publication that she loves her character Nebula and is “obsessed with her”. She likes essaying her because of how far removed the character is from her real self. She also empathises with Nebula and is invested in her, quite emotionally, due to the suffering she went through with Thanos. “I would love to continue the journey of the character”, the actor added.
The actor admits that she doesn’t know where the arc of her character will go without James Gunn and Dave Bautista being part of the project but she said, “I really like playing her, so I’m not eager to finish.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 and 2. Are now streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.
