Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan just found the hair she shaved off for Guardians of the Galaxy

Apparently, it’s been kept safe all this time


As any good sci-fi fan knows, a few years ago Doctor Who star Karen Gillan (aka companion Amy Pond) shaved off her long red locks as she left the BBC sci-fi series, in preparation for her chrome-domed role as Nebula in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.


Since then, rumours have abounded about whether the hair was being used in Star Wars or for a wig Gillan could use herself, but now the mystery about what happened to her former barnet has been revealed.

The hair had been kept intact. In a bag. For over three years.

As it turns out a friend had uncovered the hair still residing in a plastic bag, and Gillan quickly took to her Instagram account in an attempt to gross out her followers.

Looks like this was a case of hair today, not gone tomorrow.


Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be released in UK cinemas on April 28th 2017
