Karen Gillan grew up in Inverness, Scotland and developed a love for acting very early on, attending several youth theatre groups and taking part in a wide range of productions at her school, Charleston Academy.
Aged 16, Gillan decided she wanted to pursue her acting career further and a year later secured a place at the prestigious Italia Conti academy in London. During her first year she landed a role in Rebus and soon appeared in a variety of programs including Channel 4's Stacked and The Kevin Bishop Show. Gillan also stars in the forthcoming film Outcast starring James Nesbitt.
When she's not acting Gillan likes to play the piano and loves rummaging through vintage clothes shops.
