Karen Gillan Says ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Will Be Better than Original Film
Karen Gillan says the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be better than the first.
The 29-year-old actress is reprising her role as Nebula in the follow-up to the Marvel Studios superhero film released in 2014 and Karen is excited for fans to learn more about her character.
She told The Hollywood Reporter: “I’m so excited for people to see it! I just feel like it’s all of the best elements of the first one, just amplified. It’s even better – it’s funnier, the music’s even better … the second album is a blinder. It’s great. And in the first one everyone was being established. Now that that’s out of the way, you really get to delve into all of their dilemmas and things like that. I think family would really be the main theme of the thing. And my character Nebula is dealing with a whole lot of stuff there – we see a whole new side to her. A much more human side actually, where we understand how truly awful and difficult her daddy issues are.”
Karen also spoke about the outcry over her character’s skimpy outfit in the promotional pictures for upcoming remake Jumanji but insisted that there is a reason for the revealing clothing.
She explained: “I’ve experienced something similar when I worked on ‘Doctor Who’ and there was such an uproar about my costume when that was first revealed, so I thought it was happening all over again. But I have to say, I’d never take on a role that was truly gratuitous for no reason. There’s a really valid reason why she’s wearing that. My character is really not happy about it.”
