Karen Gillan Gave Jenna Coleman Advice on 'Doctor Who' Companion Role

Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman pose for more photos during the Doctor Who premiere event in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Monday evening (August 18).

The 56- and 28-year-old actors are almost wrapped up with the Doctor Who world tour.

Speaking with The Independent recently, Jenna, 28, chatted about the advice she received from former companion Karen Gillan.

“My first day we were in the make-up chairs together as I was in one of Karen‘s episodes. She was really supportive and sent me messages saying, ‘Just enjoy it,’ and gave me tips on Cardiff,” Jenna shared. “I wish I had asked her advice as there are so many questions you want to ask. But it’s the same as has happened with me and Peter – it kind of feels like a new show in a way.”
