Edinburgh-trained actress Karen Gillan is to sell her hair for charity.
Karen, pictured, who trained at Telford College, had to shave-off her tresses for her role in her new movie Guardians of the Galaxy.
But she insisted in the clippings being turned into a wig and has vowed to auction it off for a good cause once her hair has re-grown.
Karen, 25, who played Doctor Who assistant Amy Pond, said: “ Right now I need the wig to be able to work because I’m bald. But I’m going to donate my hair to charity.”
She hasn’t chosen a charity yet but hinted that she’d like to get involved with a group supporting children with learning difficulties.
