Karen Gillan ‘Cried For Two Weeks’ After Departing Doctor Who

Karen Gillan who plays Amy Pond in Doctor Who has admitted that she ‘cried for two weeks’ after filming her final scenes in the series.

Speaking at the Nerd HQ panel at Comic-Con 2012, she said: “I cried for two weeks. Everything set me off, I couldn’t hold it together at all.

“[The show] has changed my life in so many ways. And even thought I don’t want to say it, I’ve made two really good friends.”

Matt Smith then spoke about the couples departure: “I miss them. I miss these cats. It’s been three years on set. You develop a language with these people. It’s like two older brothers who bully their sister and I miss being able to bully Karen.”

Matt then joked that executive producer Steven Moffat will be head of the show for 150 years: “He’s going to do the next 150 years. He is the most wonderful man to work for. He loves Doctor Who. He doesn’t want to give up any time soon.”
On the topic of Alex Kingston, who plays River Song in Doctor Who, Smith said: “We love Alex Kingston. She’s the nicest and most flirtatious woman on the planet, She could flirt with a fish.”
