Karen Gillan Reveals Video Of Her Shaving Head For GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Karen Gillan Reveals Video Of Her Shaving Head For GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Karen Gillan (Doctor Who) whipping off what turned out to be a wig at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con ended up being a real talking point from the event. Now that Guardians of the Galaxy is the #1 movie of 2014, the actress has released the video of her shaving her head to play the villainous Nebula...

When you think of beautiful redheads, it's likely that former Doctor Who star Karen Gillan will come to mind almost instantly. It was a shock then when the Scottish actress revealed at last year's San Diego Comic-Con that she had shaved her head for the role of Nebula in Marvel and James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy, and a video of her doing just that has now found its way online. 

You have to imagine that Gillan could have got away with NOT shaving her head for the role, but the fact that she was willing to is pretty damn cool. Whether she'll do the same again for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 remains to be seen of course! What do you guys think? Sound off below!

Wouldn't mind seeing her shave a different area...

CherryBomb - 8/31/2014, 1:09 PM
Absolutely adore her!
There's not many women would do that, especially for a job.

And it really brought some visual flare to the character!
AsgardianHobo - 8/31/2014, 1:10 PM
I'd watch videos of this hottie doing just about anything
marvel72 - 8/31/2014, 1:12 PM
credit where credit is due for shaving her head for the role but is she gonna do that again if they ask her to reprise the role.
FordEl - 8/31/2014, 1:15 PM
She looks good bald, short hair, long hair

SteamBlust - 8/31/2014, 1:31 PM
Too bad her character sucked.
MediaMan - 8/31/2014, 1:34 PM
It was worth it. She was one of the very best things in the movie. First time I've ever seen someone actually pull off the whole "pure black eyes" thing & make it work. She was great.
bropous - 8/31/2014, 1:38 PM
I'd prefer a video of her putting her Nebula pants on....

Okay, seriously, every time she was on screen, I could not keep my eyes off her!
bropous - 8/31/2014, 1:40 PM
You know, @MediaMan, I never thought about it, but she is the first person to pull off the "black eyes" look without me having a vehement reaction.

The old "abduction" days coming back to haunt me, I guess...
batz11 - 8/31/2014, 1:40 PM
Same for me bro...Gunn said we'll get more of her in the sequel, all good for me...loved her line "Thanks dad" lol
DrKinsolving - 8/31/2014, 1:54 PM
She's awesome, singing Sinead O'Connor "Nothing Compares", haha....
DrKinsolving - 8/31/2014, 1:56 PM
I hope she reprises the role, looking forward to seeing a lot more of Nebula

Bald Karen got me like:

Kevwebsz - 8/31/2014, 2:00 PM
She could come back considering that Nebula didnt die
MediaMan - 8/31/2014, 2:03 PM
@bropous - yep, I've seen the whole "completely black eyes" thing before, but it's never been believable. She really made it work, which I'm sure wasn't easy. She REALLY sold it. I hope she comes back.

What a trooper!
BaneSmash - 8/31/2014, 2:09 PM
Awesome! Another GOTG article..............
GiantNerd - 8/31/2014, 2:12 PM

I know, I hate articles about CBMs.
DatGuy - 8/31/2014, 2:28 PM
Nebula could of been such a cool character, but instead they made her into a one dimensional sidekick villian. Total miscast. Props on her shaving her head, but she could of put more emotion in her role.
marvel54 - 8/31/2014, 2:38 PM
Jennifer Lawrence you're the real MVP lol

All these celebrity nude leaks.....

Are these intentional or what? How are these leaks even possible?
AlexanderLykins - 8/31/2014, 2:56 PM
I kind of feel bad for them. Should we do something? Can we?

BaneSmash - 8/31/2014, 2:57 PM

How many TMNT article do you read a day? Last I heard was TMNT was a comic movie............ Bias website.

Can't wait for the article of which cast member of the GOTG passed gas on the set :/
Prime - 8/31/2014, 3:08 PM
Feel bad for Jennifer Lawrence...
DrDoom - 8/31/2014, 3:10 PM
There was really no reason for them to not use her classic look, especially considering that she didn't get to do anything.

Jesse Eisenberg's will be better. *Kanye Shrug*
TheRedCondom - 8/31/2014, 3:14 PM
So much respect for doing that!
TheRedCondom - 8/31/2014, 3:15 PM

You're making life harder than it is, just ignore them
SpideyFan - 8/31/2014, 3:20 PM
@FordEl the progression of Karen's hair kinda reminds me of Jodie from "Beyond Two Souls" for some reason...
Pasto - 8/31/2014, 3:22 PM
That list of nudes got the brush of "sketch" as soon as Melissa McCarthy's name came up.
RealDCGuy - 8/31/2014, 3:23 PM
i read that title wrong
GiantNerd - 8/31/2014, 3:28 PM

Just curious, in what way do you think the site is bias? I mean people can write articles themselves if the power users don't..
Alien - 8/31/2014, 3:32 PM
J-Law's nudies got me like...
CombatWombat - 8/31/2014, 4:26 PM
better than Jesse Eisenberg
TheRationalNerd - 8/31/2014, 4:29 PM

Lol, his hasn't even leaked though? o_O
Kyos - 8/31/2014, 4:31 PM
I just finished watching her run in Doctor Who, so watching this now is extremely funny. ^^
MakluIV - 8/31/2014, 4:54 PM
Make up effects for Nebula are some of the best ever. She looked [frick]ing awesome!
