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.

 If I have to stand in for the Doctor today, I’ll do it. Stop twisting my arm! !
