In a recent interview with Collider, Doctor Who and Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan reveals that she has a role in the new Star Wars film. Well, rather her hair will have a role. Since the actor had to shave her head for her role as Nebula in the upcoming Guardians (opening this August 1st), her hair was graciously donated to the Star Wars Episode VII production team to create a new character's wig. Gillan calls the process of shaving her head Alien 3 style hysterical, "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." Read more at the full Collider interview and look forward to a Karen Gillan Hair action figure from Hasbro in 2015.
