Karen Gillan is the cover star on today’s Radio Times, for her new drama We’ll Take Manhattan, in which she plays 60s model Jean Shrimpton.

In her interview with Radio Times, Karen Gillan talks about leaving Doctor Who:
“It was a completely mutual agreement,” she insists of the recent news that she is to leave the show. Steven Moffat and I decided when would be the best time for Amy to go.” Gillan might know when, but she doesn’t know how – only that Moffat has promised it will be heartbreaking: “I’d like to see her go out in flames of glory.”

Her first post-Who project will be Not Another Happy Ending, a quirky indie film – “It’s a great script, really funny” – in which Gillan will play an eccentric author with writer’s block. And after that? Does Hollywood appeal? “Ooo, that would be really fun. I like the States.”
