Karen Gillan joined Instagram and couldn’t stop posting

From birthday snaps to sneak peeks at her new short film...


Stop what you’re doing. Karen Gillan has joined Instagram. 


The 28-year-old, who played Doctor Who companion Amy Pond between 2010 and 2012, is already a regular tweeter, sharing selfies, snaps, tidbits from sets and insights into her day-to-day existence. 

But now fans have another way of getting their Gillan-fix. 

“Apparently I just joined Instagram!” Gillan tweeted yesterday… 

Before thanking the 10.3k who followed her almost instantly: 

KarenGillanOfficial already has five posts, including a snap of the star celebrating her birthday… 

My 28th birthday with friends!

And a screengrab from a short film she recently directed called Conventional:

A screen grab from my short film Conventional. Don't worry, lips are from a Halloween store and glued to my face.
