British actress Karen Gillan has become one of the most sought after British stars in Hollywood right now, with a number of impressive roles coming up in the coming years. We will soon see Karen in the role of Nebula in the upcoming Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy but, before then, we get to see Karen in the new movie Oculus.
In Oculus we see Karen Gillan share the big screen with Katee Sackhoff, who plays her mother in the movie and the British actress has been talking about the movie. Karen says that she did not know Katee before they began working on Oculus, but she was full of praise for her co-star and says that they are now very good friends.
Gillan explained, "You know, I actually think she was fine with it, because somebody told me - this is a little rumour - that she's naturally a redhead. I couldn't believe it, because that means she's one of the lucky ones who gets the tan as well, and I'm not sure I could handle that."
She added, "I met her for the first time on the set actually. We've become really good friends and she is lovely and I just like listening to her. She's such an amazing actress and so good in the film, and also she's a sci-fi actress who's transitioned into other things, so there's plenty of inspiration there."
As well as starring Karen Gillan and Katee Sackhoff, Oculus also stars Brenton Thwaites, Rory Cochrane, Annalise Basso, Garrett Ryan, and James Lafferty. Oculus is already out in the US and will open in the UK on June 13.
