Whilst promoting her new horror movie, Oculus, Karen Gillan was asked about this Summer's big Marvel movie, Guardians Of The Galaxy, in which she plays the villainous Nebula.

In the Gamora featurette it looks like Gillan and Zoe Saldana have a big fight scene...
"Yeah, there's a big girlie fight sequence, but it's not that girlie," Gillan said. "They made sure there weren't any nice pirouettes or anything like that. She's (Saldana) really experienced in the physical stuff, she was a ballerina. She's really amazing at all of that stuff. She barely required any rehearsal, she was like, 'I can do this.' I required two months of rehearsals every day that I wasn't shooting, because I looked like spaghetti when I started."

"It's not just a physical battle," Gillan added. "Their relationship goes very deep, and there's a huge history between them. So there's a lot more to it than just the physical."
Karen Gillan famously shaved her head for the role of Nebula, how did she find that?...
"It was the saddest thing in the world," Gillan said. "They'd use a big industrial wind machine when filming her, but when it was on me, it was like, 'Turn the wind machine off,' and it was like beeeeup."
When Marvel announced they were making Guardians Of The Galaxy many people saw it as a huge risk, but not Gillan...
"I always had total faith in the project, because the people who are making it are so brilliant, and have a long history of great films," Gillan told MTV News. "So I knew it was in great hands. I just think it's a new direction for Marvel, it's really, really funny, it's not taking itself seriously at all. It's tongue in cheek. And just to see people be excited about that new tone is cool."
Guardians of the Galaxy arrives in UK cinemas on August 1st.
