Episode notes

Joining me, Kelly-Anne Taylor, for the first episode of this brand-new series of the Radio Times Podcast, is the Scottish actress who took Hollywood by storm, Karen Gillan. Born and raised in Inverness, she moved to London aged 18 to pursue acting – after two weeks at drama school, she dropped out and worked in a pub until she was cast in a role that would change her life – the brilliant Amy Pond in Dr Who. Since then, she’s conquered Hollywood with her role as Nebula in the Marvel film franchise. In this episode, we discuss losing your anonymity, the pressures placed on women’s bodies and her brand new show Douglas is Cancelled.
