Karen Gillan Shines A Light On Scotland's Suicide Rate In 'A Book Of' Feature

Karen Gillan is opening up about an important organization that is near and dear to her heart in her feature with A Book Of magazine.

The 32-year-old Jumanji star shined a light on Mikey’s Line, which will benefit from the sales of her feature. Mikey’s Line is the largest suicide prevention hotline in Scotland.

“It’s very important to me just because it’s a text service in the area where the film [The Party's Just Beginning] was set. It’s where I’m from, Inverness, at the top of Scotland where the suicide rate is really high among young men,” she shares.

Karen adds that the rate is actually “much higher than the rest of Scotland or Europe I think.”

“Their service is incredible and it’s all anonymous. It’s helping a lot of people out there to communicate. Especially men who have a harder time conveying their emotions and they don’t want to appear vulnerable or show weakness. I think we all need to work hard to make sure that it’s not seen as weakness to show your emotions.”

Just recently, Karen shared the number with her 1.2 million followers on Twitter.

Karen Gillan Says Dwayne Johnson & Kevin Hart 'Torment' Her 'Relentlessly'

Karen Gillan dished on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (December 17) about her time on the Jumanji: The Next Level set with co-stars Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart!

As host Jimmy asked, “Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson, they were both here last week. Which do you prefer of the two? Be honest.”

“Neither of them, because they torment me relentlessly! It’s unbelievable,” Karen hilariously responded.

“They make fun of me a lot. And they try to impersonate Scottish accents very badly. It’s a travesty to listen to,” Karen continued. “They sound like someone doing a bad impression of Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins.”

Karen also talked about only being a part of big franchise movies (she plays Nebula in the Avengers): “I know, it’s such a weird thing,” Gillan replied. “Everything is very big and franchise-y, but I feel really excited to be involved in things that people actually care about. It’s quite rare.”

Karen Gillan Reveals Which 'Avengers: Endgame' Scene Was Improvised

Karen Gillan is dishing on which Avengers: Endgame scene she improvised!

The 32-year-old Jumanji: The Next Level actress – who played two different Nebulas in Avengers: Endgame – opened up about the filming experience in a recent interview with THR.

“The way we differentiated them was by calling them ‘good Nebula’ and ‘bad Nebula,’” Karen said, revealing that she didn’t have the full script while shooting. “I had a lot of time travel questions coming from a time travel background. The directors really kept me on track. I just found out whatever I needed to know for each scene.”

She also spilled on who was victorious in an early scene during which Nebula and Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark/Iron Man play a game of paper football.

“Well, I think it was me because that scene was improvised,” Karen laughed. “And I won.”
