These days, it’s kinda hard NOT to know who Karen Gillan is these days. Sure, years ago, it’s was just the Doctor Who nerds who were in the know, but with her not-insignificant role in the MCU, she’s become a household name… provided that your household LOVES comic book movies and Doctor Who.
I can’t remember how I came across this short. I take that back – I do. It was in an article about horror shorts that came out one Halloween season. I’m sure there were lots of good films in that list but this is the one that stuck with me the most. Having gone to a handful of pop culture conventions, I’ve often wondered what it’s like for the people on the other side of the table. What goes through their heads as they their spend hours signing autographs and basically selling themselves in a very literal way? Hopefully, it’s nothing like this, but I wonder…

“She is both the monster and the victim simultaneously.”
