Karen: I mean really angry.



Can you guys tell us some embarrassing Arthur Darvill stories?  

Matt: Arthur - there was a time in New York, I’m not going to tell you the real story here. It’s a bit of a story, the real story - it’s perhaps not for this environment. We were really late, weren’t we, for a press thing?

Karen: Oh, yeah.

Matt: And sometimes Arthur would get [imitating Arthur] quite sort of hit up, and he would be like, “GUYS, WHERE ARE YOU? WHERE ARE YOU? WHY DO I ALWAYS HAVE TO BE DAD?”

Karen: Yeah, like he screamed it, like really seriously.

Matt: And I’d just fallen in the bath, fully clothed.

[Karen laughs hysterically] 

Matt: It’s true. We’ll leave it at that, but…

[Karen continues to laugh hysterically].

Karen: I can’t believe that you fell in the bath…

Matt: Yeah, yeah…

Karen: I’m crying with laughter. You fell in the bathtub!

Matt: I know. She was there! And I was just like [stands up and falls back into chair].

Karen: I was like, “Are you okay?”

Matt: And we were just about to leave the room, and you were just, you were just…

Karen: I mean…

Matt: …on the floor, laughing at me. And then Arthur was outside getting cross cause I was soaking wet, fully clothed in the bath.

Karen: I mean really angry.

I love— I have a very close soft spot for Karen, I love Karen. She’s my great, great friend. And she’s just— y’know, she’s just so ridiculous. I can’t even begin to tell you. Y’know, she seems like, "[imitating Karen’s accent] Oooh nooo, I’m in a world of my own," but actually, she’s very smart, and she’s really clever, and she’s very funny, and she’s a great drinking buddy as well, so. But she’s from Scotland, they know how to do it. Um, and yeah, so, y’know. I’d run through a brick wall for Kazza. I would. —Matt Smith talking about Karen Gillan during his panel at the St. Louis Wizard World Comic Con (via mattandkaz)

In The Eleventh Hour, what was your favorite scene? [x]

She’s just the weirdest person in the world. And she’s, like, SO pretty, but what’s amazing about Karen is that her beauty is not part of her personality at all. She’s so unaware of it. You know how some people are really beautiful and they go, “oh, I’m beautiful,” but she’s really not, and she’s really funny and really ridiculous.
