When Karen Gillan revealed her bald head by removing a wig at SDCC last year, people gasped at the idea that her hair was gone. However, it turns out her hair may not be gone after all.
Gillan recently spoke to Collider and had this to say about getting her head shaved and the fate of those signature locks:
“No, I was laughing hysterically. It really hit me when I woke up the next morning. That’s when I was like, ‘Oh, my god, where’s my hair?!’ But also, everyone kept me in good spirit. Everyone was laughing and telling jokes. Marvel are the best company to work for, they really are. They treat you really well. They made my hair into the most incredible well-made wig and they gave it to the Star Wars people. It’s just so funny to think that my hair is made into a wig, next to all these Star Wars monster heads in a warehouse. I thought that was really funny.”
Elsewhere on the internet, I’ve seen a couple people speculate that the wig in question may be for Mara Jade.
Either way, I think there’s something kind of interesting about Karen Gillan’s hair being in a movie without actually being on her head. Let’s hope it gets the love and attention it deserves.
