“I feel like she’s a face licker,” Karen Gillan says of Nebula, the female villain she plays in Marvel’s box office hit Guardians of the Galaxy.
“She’s really sadistic. One time, I had a man in a headlock, and then I just decided that Nebula would lick his face,” Gillan tells Interview magazine.
Why not, eh? It’s certainly creepy and it’s definitely hitting the right notes with fans. The film has smashed box office records, pulling in an impressive £6.4million in its opening four days in the UK. Twitter is filled with people revealing that they’re heading back for their second and third viewings and a sequel was confirmed at the recent Comic-Con.
And it seems playing the villain is not an accident for the former Doctor Who star.
“My dad used to tell me when I was younger, ‘You don’t want to be a Bond girl; you want to be a villain’. That stuck with me.”
Gillan certainly wouldn’t be looking to shake up a Martini for 007. “I just want to lick his face,” she says.
