Karen Gillan has never been afraid of experiments with her appearance. At 15, she dyed her natural red hair pink. What is more, she surprised everyone in 2013 by shaving her head for the part of Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy. By the way, the hair was turned into a wig used by the celebrity for the Doctor Who Christmas special.
