The first trailer for Selfie starring our very own Karen Gillan has been released and it’s, well… marmite. For those with a love of all things internet, the #hashtagging, Instagramming, Facebooking and, yes, selfies, will be right up your street. For the rest of us, this first footage looks rather toe-curling.
Based on the story of My Fair Lady, Selfie sees the former Doctor Who actress play a self-obsessed twenty-something more committed to her online persona than her professional image. Co-starring John Cho as marketing guru Henry Higenbottam – the man she enlists to transform her into a likeable person – the ABC series has some creative kudos, written by Suburgatory’s Emily Kapnek, and also features Homeland’s David Harewood.
