Karen Gillan has warned fans that the upcoming finale of Doctor Who is emotional and that viewers will need “tissues”. She refused to reveal too many details about the episode but teased: “I’m going to say the word ‘horses’ and that’s it.” Gillan also admitted that the episode had been one of the hardest to film.
“The second part of the finale was the most difficult because it’s a big climax for Amy and her story that’s been building through the series,” she said. “And it just required a lot of kind of concentration and emotion.”
Karen Gillan has also revealed that a fan once proposed to her and explained that she is still getting used to her fame.
“It’s kind of a bit of a shock to the system, actually. It’s kind of instant in that way, when you sort of get involved in Doctor Who. It kind of changes your life as soon as you’re announced as playing the part, before anyone’s even seen you. So you’re kind of walking into an already famous part, if you know what I mean. It’s not you that’s made it famous. So what you’ve got to do is put your own sort of mark on it I guess. It’s been really positive. Everyone’s been really nice and they feel so passionately about it that it makes me really excited to be involved in it.”
However, she admitted that she has been surprised by fans in the past.
“I got proposed to in America by a girl,” she said. “I was quite taken aback by that. She was very nice and all, but I’m not really ready for marriage.”
