‘I love my character so much. I’m sort of obsessed with her,’ Gillan said with a laugh in the interview.

‘I just get such a kick out of playing a character that’s really removed from myself. But I also feel really emotionally invested in her through everything that she’s gone through with Thanos and all of that,’ she added.

While Gillan admitted she doesn’t know what another Guardians movie, ‘would really look like without James or Dave,’ she still would, ‘love to continue the journey.’ 

Obsessed: ‘I love my character so much. I’m sort of obsessed with her,’ Gillan said with a laugh in the interview

‘I really like playing her, so I’m not eager to finish,’ Gillan continued.

The actress recently shared the mold she did of her face for the prosthetics artists on Guardians 3, revealing she has to do it for each movie.

‘Most times, yes, because your face kind of changes over the years. I’ve been playing this character for eight years now, which is insane because when I signed up, it was for eight days of filming,’ she said with a laugh.

‘And now, it’s eight years later. So, yeah, we have to do that before each film, and that’s so they can make the mold specifically for your face, perfectly,’ she added.

Gillan’s co-star Chris Pratt revealed during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live that filming is slated to begin later this year.

‘We will be shooting that at the end of this year and the beginning of next year, so like November to maybe April,’ Pratt said.

Eight years: ‘And now, it’s eight years later. So, yeah, we have to do that before each film, and that’s so they can make the mold specifically for your face, perfectly,’ she added

He also said that he read the script, ‘years ago,’ since it was originally supposed to be filmed long before the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gillan revealed that Gunn has a new draft of the script, which needed to be updated, though she hasn’t read it yet.

‘I’ve read one, but I haven’t read the new one. I read one a long time ago. It could be completely different now, but what I read was amazing,’ she said.

Marvel currently has Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 slated for release on May 5, 2023.
