Apologies for the lack of updates recently – I am working hard to get caught up on gallery updates, etc!
Firstly, as you can see, we have a stunning new layout (and matching Photo Gallery layout!) by Claudia from Never Enough Designs! I hope you love it as much as I do, and it features my favourite promotional images from Karen’s role in Selfie!
Talking of Selfie – you will probably all know of its cancellation by ABC. I am gutted about this decision – I adore the series and think Karen really shines throughout it, especially in the most recent episode “Imperfect Harmony” (if you haven’t seen it, you really should!). Her chemistry with John Cho is delightful, and the whole cast work really well together!
Updates wise – I have added HD screencaptures from the entire Selfie series so far – over 1500 screencaptures!
Did everyone catch episode 2 of Selfie? I loved it, and thought the episode was a definite improvement on the Pilot episode and didn’t seem so rushed. I’m still working on getting the screencaptures sorted (may have over-capped slightly!), but in the meantime here’s a bunch of stills from the first few episodes!

With a huge huge thank you to Jimmy, I’ve been able to add some missing candid images to the gallery!
Remember that cute Glaswegian film Not Another Happy Ending that featured Karen as Jane Lockhart? Of course you do – how could you forget such an adorable film!
Well, over at WeAreColony.com, the film is getting a re-release and it comes with a bumper bonus of over 75 minutes of additional features, including deleted scenes (yay!); a making-of documentary (yay!); more stills and images (double yay!) and the script too!
We are Colony is a brand new UK streaming service aimed at uniting filmmakers and their fans to allow them to be the first to get early and exclusive behind the scenes access to great independent films, and has been set up by Sarah Tierney.
Below is a snippet of what they have to offer…
As you can see we have a lovely new layout by Sweet Revelation Designs – we hope you like it!
You may have noticed, a short while ago I uploaded screencaptures from the pilot of Selfie! Check it out over at the official site to view online. I’ve also updated the gallery with a couple of photoshoot images too!
I’ve finally managed to find time to screencapture Karen’s recent role in horror Oculus! Over 1400 screencaptures have been added to the gallery – Karen looks absolutely stunning in her role as Kaylie!

On Thursday night, Matt Smith took part in the internationally viral charity awareness-raising campaign known as the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. As part of his challenge, he nominated Karen complete it next, and via her Twitter page she reacted with;

As of yet, Karen doesn’t seem to have completed her challenge, but as soon as it’s available I’ll post it here!

I’ve updated the gallery with a bunch of recent photoshoot images that we were missing, including Karen’s recent photoshoots for Esquire and InStyle.

Michael Sheen, June Squibb and Will Forte have also signed up for HBO’s star-studded tennis mockumentary
Now, this is something we love-LOVE…
7 Days in Hell – a mockumentary HBO movie following an epic, seven-day tennis match at Wimbledon – has announced details of its staggeringly good cast.
Playing superstar tennis bad-boy Aaron Williams is Golden Globe-winning Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg while on the other side of the net will be Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington portraying Charles Lloyd Poole, an Andy Murray-type prodigy and certified truck driver, according to Deadline.
But that’s not all. Joining the pair on set will be former Doctor Who actress Karen Gillan, Girls star Lena Dunham and Oscar-nominated Nebraska actress June Squibb.
Squibb’s co-star Will Forte is also among the cast, as is Masters of Sex actor Michael Sheen, Oscar-winner Mary Steenburgen, Howie Mandel (America’s Got Talent) and Fred Armisen (Saturday Night Live).
Rumour has it that Gillan will portray supermodel Lily – Charles’s childhood friend who is caught between the duelling pair when she makes a sex tape with Aaron. Steenburgen is to play Charles’s psychotic and controlling mother, while Forte will portray a tennis historian.
The brainchild of Samberg and Girls writer and executive producer Murray Miller (who will pen the script), 7 Days in Hell will be set in 2004 and double the length of the longest real-life match in tennis history – an eleven-hour, three-day showdown between John Isner and Nicholas Mahut in 2010.
We’re predicting a Samberg/Harrington Centre Court thriller to go down in the annals of SW19 history.
Karen also attended a promotional photocall for Guardians of the Galaxy today, alongside her co-stars – I’ve added a bunch of high quality images to the gallery, with further thanks to Helen for some of these!
