MTV recently got a chance to talk to Karen Gillan (Nebula) at SXSW. In the interview, she talked a little bit about her role in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film. Check out some of the quotes below...
- "I just think it's a new direction for Marvel, it's really, really funny. It's not taking itself seriously at all. It's tongue in cheek. And just to see people be excited about that new tone is cool."
- "Nebula does not find herself funny. I find her hilarious. But she can't find herself hilarious, that's not scary."
- Talking about a fight scene between her character Nebula and Zoe Saldana's character Gamora, Gillan said, "There's a big girlie fight sequence, but it's not that girlie. They made sure there weren't any nice pirouettes or anything like that. She's [Saldana] really experienced in the physical stuff, she was a ballerina. She's really amazing at all of that stuff. She barely required any rehearsal, she was like, 'I can do this.' I required two months of rehearsals every day that I wasn't shooting, because I looked like spaghetti when I started."
- Speaking more about the fight scene, Gillan added "This is the integral one for my character, because it's not just a physical battle. Their relationship goes very deep, and there's a huge history between them. So there's a lot more to it than just the physical."
