Artist: ‘I got rejected for the local panto’
Karen Gillan is one of Scotland’s biggest star of the moment but she had to go through a lot of knockbacks to get into acting in the first place!
Before her big break as Amy Pond in Doctor Who, Gillan was rejected from school plays and local pantomime, but she knew could make it and she persevered.
Now she wants to extend her wisdom to her fans, saying that if you want to break into acting you have the belief in yourself, work harder than anyone else and not listen to rejections.
Now she is so grateful to have followed her dreams with her last movie Jumanji being such a huge success internationally.
