Karen Gillan is a Scottish actress and director who has a dazzling smile and fiery red hair. She gained her start as the likable Amy Pond on Doctor Who and has since been in other successful films, including Guardians of the Galaxy, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, and Netflix’s Gunpowder Milkshake. Karen is such a rising celebrity in the entertainment industry that many of her followers are curious about her romantic life and marriage status.
Who’s dating Karen Gillan? She married?
Former Doctor Who co-star Matt Smith is just one of several stars associated with Karen in the past. There is also speculation that she dated actor Andrew Brooke, though this has never been substantiated. Karen has given lengthy interviews to the press regarding dating and her thoughts on dating in the United States vs the United Kingdom.
In 2014, she stated to The Telegraph, “What a terrifying thought it is! Unlike the British, Americans appear to date multiple people at once. My immediate thought was, “Are you kissing all of them?” It’s more fun to me to go on dates as they do in the United Kingdom, where no one knows who is dating who.”
Although Karen allegedly dated photographer Patrick Green for six years, so maybe she knows what she’s talking about when it comes to the art of the date. Since 2012, however, she has avoided the spotlight and thoroughly enjoys her single status. Karen will likely announce to the public when she is ready to settle down, or we may just run into her “drinking near” someone, so fans can rest easy.
Gunpowder Milkshake, starring Karen Gillan, is a new action film about female friendship
Fans of films like Birds of Prey and Ocean’s 8 shouldn’t be shocked by Gunpowder Milkshake’s all-star female cast because of the demand for similar stories. Karen plays the primary role of Sam, an assassin who must safeguard a young girl of eight and whose skills she learned from her mother (played by Lena Heady of Game of Thrones).
Film veterans Angela Bassett, Carla Gugino, Michelle Yeoh, Freya Allen, and Paul Giamatti all star in the film. Some have called Gunpowder Milkshake “Tarantino-esque” because of the female lead’s bloody content and fierceness. The Hollywood Reporter announced at the Cannes Film Festival that Gunpowder Milkshake’s production company, StudioCanal, is already planning a sequel. Feel the thrill!
Due to her busy film schedule, Karen presumably hasn’t given much thought to her love endeavors in the recent past. Her forthcoming filmography includes the comedies The Bubble (directed by Judd Apatow) and Guardians of the Galaxy (directed by James Gunn), and Thor (directed by Taika Waititi).
