Karen Gillan’s REAL Hairstory

kgbaldWith Guardians of the Galaxy dominating the world box office, it’s nice to see that Karen Gillan didn’t sacrifice her hair to play Nebula in vain. And, best of all, her hair isn’t really gone.

Turns out, the folks at Marvel had a plan: They made Karen a wig out of her own hair, and she wears it on her new sitcom, SELFIE. Said Karen: “They took it strand-by-strand and put it into a wig, so I’m going to be wearing that [on SELFIE].”

Karen said the story that circulated on the internet about her hair being woven into a wig for use in Star Wars: Episode VII was a “miscommunication.”

On SELFIE, which premieres Sept. 30, Gillan plays a self-obsessed woman who tries to transform herself in a modern twist on My Fair Lady. And her ginger locks are not the only “fake” thing about Karen on the show: She also uses an American accent, one she says she honed by watching American TV and by signing up for SoulCycle class and listening to her fellow exercisers.
