Karen Gillan's hair in Star Wars: Episode VII



In an interview with Collider, Karen Gillan talks Oculus, Guardians of the Galaxy and Star Wars.

"They made my hair into the most incredible well-made wig and they gave it to the 'Star Wars' people," she said.

"It's just so funny to think that my hair is made into a wig, next to all these Star Wars monster heads in a warehouse. I thought that was really funny." But it was certainly no simple task to get rid of her flowing locks. "I was laughing hysterically," she said. "It really hit me when I woke up the next morning. That's when I was like, 'Oh, my god, where's my hair?!'

"But also, everyone kept me in good spirit. Everyone was laughing and telling jokes. Marvel are the best company to work for, they really are. They treat you really well."

The news isn't without controversy. Some Star Wars fans argue this is a spoiler pertaining to Expanded Universe character Mara Jade.
