Karen Gillan’s Hair Was Donated To Star Wars
Speaking of Karen Gillan’s hair, or lack thereof, when the actress shaved her head to play Nebula in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Gillan’s striking red tresses went in a curious new destination. More specifically, it went to a galaxy far, far away. Indeed, Gillan claimed in a Collider interview to promote her horror movie, 2013’s Oculus, that she donated her shaved mane to the hair and make-up crew of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, another Disney production. Where the hair went in that massive production is unclear, but it was ultimately used to bring the hugely popular sci-fi movie to life. While the hair is no longer attached to Gillan’s scalp, it lives on inside this ever-expansive science-fantasy franchise. So, the next time you watch J.J. Abrams’ space adventure film, be sure to look out for Gillan’s locks! They’re there somewhere!
