Articles on Karen’s new role http://www.bbc.co.uk http://www.guardian.co.uk

“I am so excited to be playing somebody who had such a lasting impact on the fashion world,” Gillan said.

Doctor Who star Karen Gillan is to play 1960s model Jean Shrimpton in a BBC4 drama about her love affair with photographer David Bailey.
The project, with a working title We’ll Take Manhattan, will be Gillan’s first major drama role since she was cast as the Doctor’s companion Amy Pond in 2009.
Bailey is still to be cast and production has yet to begin. The drama will focus on a 1962 Vogue photo shoot in New York.
“We’ll Take Manhattan reveals how a young, visionary photographer refused to conform and insisted on using the unconventional model Jean Shrimpton on an important photo shoot for British Vogue, inadvertently defining the style of the 1960s along the way,” the BBC said.

Karen interview http://www.independent.co.uk

“I was really restless, because I wanted to be acting,” she reasons. “But I was thinking: ‘Was it the right thing to leave drama school for this one episode?’ Whereas I could’ve stayed there for three years and got a degree. But I don’t know. I’m just like that. I just left randomly. I was longing to get back into acting, but it was quite difficult.”

How to spot a fake

Posted by Tsaress in Jul 06,2010 with 3 Comments

Since posting my update on fakes I have noticed that a lot of people have been taken in by very good fakes. Thought I would give a few points on how to spot a fake.

Check the layout is it proffessicial are they using a personal picture or is it one that be got from anywhere. Silly graphics/background normally scream fake. If it’s a twitter account are they officially verfied do other verfied actors etc reply to them. Do they have a offiicial website that is linked to the twitter or facebook. Do fansites link to the account and say it’s official. What type of pictures do they post are they pictures that can be got from anywhere. Do they post at weird times e.g when they would be asleep or working or in another country.

For explain on a good verfied account Let’s take Alex Meraz who plays Paul in New Moon and Eclipse he opened a twitter account and the 3rd tweet he posted he put a picture with a sign with his twitter address on it. Then other known verfied actors replied to him and finally he was verfied account and has his myspace and twitter linked to his official site.

Don’t get me wrong I really want Karen to have a twitter facebook etc but she hasn’t and I hate the fact their are fakes.

Thanks to Dan who gave some info about a fake facebook going about

It has about 2,000+ friends. I have to admit first hand I have been duped by it. From the beginning I have been hard to believe it. A few times I thought maybe but I firmly believe it is (although fake) a VERY GOOD fake. Whoever it is tries very hard to make sure it seems as real as possible. However there are a few problems I have always had and more recently have had with the profile.
1. Pictures: Every picture on the page even though “she” tries to claim are personal pics are ALL from other sources that are easily accessible online. There are NO personal photos of her, even the candid ones can be found on this site and were long before they were on that profile. Also the whole autograph request was taken from another site and all info on the page can easily be found in other avenues online.
2. Constant updates: This is kind of a two-parter. First her friend’s list is always updating, also her profile pic, and status, a lot of times it is at times that do not seem conceivable for someone living on BST. With all due respect to Ms. Gillan, do you REALLY think she is up at 3am/4am updating facebook? I don’t think so. I actually put on one comment she made once that was posted at like 4am her time “do you ever sleep” it was quickly deleted…hmm. Which brings me to my 3rd point.
3. “her” online demeanor: Something I’ve noticed more recently is her kind of meltdowns on facebook and also twitter account that clearly the same person runs. Someone does not think its her and she throws a hissy fit. I can think of a case where she deleted her twitter account made a big stink and then came back a few hours later with another one…seriously? She also personally calls out fans and attacks them if she doesn’t think it’s her. I would think the real KG would not act like a middle schooler on facebook. Bottom line is, anyone that famous is not going to create an actual facebook account and then invite EVERYONE to be friends with her, especially because of all of the stink it brings. A verified twitter maybe but NOT an FB.
