Originally from Scotland, Karen Gillan moved to the United States to pursue acting, and she found filmmaking along the way. Karen’s work has a tendency to both seek out the twisted darkness and embrace the humor found in adversity. She directed two short films, 'Coward' and 'Conventional,' before her debut feature, THE PARTY'S JUST BEGINNING. This movie just premiered to rave reviews at the Tribeca Film Festival and was picked up by The Orchard.

As for her acting career, Karen can be seen starring in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, which just opened to the biggest box office weekend in history. She was also recently the only female lead in Sony’s highest grossing film of all time, JUMANJI, for director Jake Kasdan. She can also be seen in the worldwide hit GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2, in which she reprised her role as Nebula opposite Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Kurt Russell.
