Karen Gillan Didn't Donate Hair To 'Star Wars,' Says Being Bald
After Scottish actress Karen Gillan shaved her head last summer, the photos went viral. The star went bald for her role in "Guardians of the Galaxy," and people are still talking about it.

They've also speculated what happened to her beautiful red locks after they were chopped off. In case you're wondering, no, her hair wasn't made into a wig for the upcoming "Star Wars" film. She told BBC at the London premiere of "Guardians" that the rumor was a "miscommunication."

During an appearance on British talk show "Lorraine," the former "Doctor Who" star talked about going bald for the first t...

15 Female Celebrities Who Have Shaved Their Heads
It's not uncommon for male stars to shave their heads once their hair stops growing, but when a female celebrity gets a buzz cut, it makes headlines.

Actress Natalie Portman famously shaved her head to play Evey in 2006 film "V for Vendetta." In fact, she shaved it herself on screen in one shot.

Director James McTeigue told USA Today at the time: "She knew the day was coming. I put three cameras on her, made sure the clippers weren't stuck, and then we shaved her head. She loved it and kept rubbing her head."

Portman, who was 24 when she went bald, proved that even women can rock a shave...

Despite these rare statistics, Hollywood is full of redheads. So whose hair is real and whose isn't?

Lindsay Lohan is one of the few natural gingers in Tinseltown. She experimented with blonde for a while, but we're glad she's been sticking to her roots lately.

Jenna-Louise Coleman Stunned By 'Doctor Who' Secrecy

Jenna-Louise Coleman
Actress Jenna-Louise Coleman was impressed by the high levels of secrecy surrounding Doctor Who after her role was given a code name to throw off fans.

Producers used the phrase Men On Waves when auditioning actresses to replace Karen Gillan as Time Lord Matt Smith's assistant - but Coleman managed to crack the code.

She tells the Radio Times, "I worked out that Men On Waves is an anagram of Woman Seven, because this is the seventh series (since the show re-launched in 2005). Weirdly, seven is my lucky number and this is my seventh job."

The former British soap opera star was also ba...

Doctor Who - Season 6 Episode 9 - Night Terrors

After last week’s River Song/Melody Pond reveal, the Powers That Be have allowed us all a breath. Thank Heavens! The roller coaster ride of the “Let’s Kill Hitler” episode nearly did me in! I’m glad to say that this week’s episode is much less all encompassing. Although if you were afraid of puppets before, you won’t be attending any Punch and Judy fairs in the near future!

In a dark, but nevertheless, rather ordinary, row of council apartments, a bunch of very ordinary tenants prepare for the evening. In one apartment, however, a young boy named George balks at going to sleep. He’s fright...

After a summer off, while the producers of Doctor Who apparently awaited the growing of corn, the Doctor has returned. And what a return it is! Finally, we learn how Melody Pond became River Song … and it’s a heck of a story!

“Let’s see, you’ve got a time machine, I’ve got a gun. What the hell, let’s kill Hitler.”

We begin with Rory and Amy barreling through a lush corn field, with Amy shouting coordinates. With a flourish, they pull into a clearing, and before you can say, “Doctor Who?” the blue box has appeared. A petulant Doctor demands to know why they have been signaling him with cro...

TV on DVD: 'Doctor Who: Series Six, Part 1'

Doctor Who
If you're still missing Doctor Who, and BBC Books' dozen recently-released novels aren't enough, BBC Home Entertainment has sent home Doctor Who: Series Six, Part 1 on Blu-Ray and DVD. Here's my review of the DVD version.

The Show

This is the second series of Doctor Who under the stewardship of Steven Moffat, and I have to say that I've enjoyed it. To be fair, I've liked Moffat's work since Coupling, but I don't see what's apparently got some Whovians up in arms about this series. That doesn't mean that they're wrong, but I didn't feel as major a sea change as others did when Moffat t...

Doctor Who ’A Good Man Goes To War’ Episode 7 Recap June 4

June 5th, 2011 10:41am EDT
Doctor Who
Mea Culpa. I honestly thought that I could get away without recapping Episodes 5 and 6 “The Rebel Flesh/The Almost People” while I wrestled with the larger philosophical implications of the ‘Gangers.’ I was terribly wrong. You do need to know a bit about the Gangers before we can go on.

In a nutshell, in the future, people are using bio-engineered, sentient duplicates, made from a compound called The Flesh. These duplicates, called ‘Gangers’ (as in doppelganger,) are exact clones of the original person, right down to having the same heart, soul and mind. These clones are used to go into d...

Years ago, I was in a band with a drummer who lived, ate, and breathed Sci-fi. On one of those long journeys to a gig, I asked him what his ideal woman would look like, and he said, “She’d be covered in soft blue fur, from head to toe.” He had no real reason, he just liked the idea.

Well, this week, the Doctor gets to live out a Sci-Fi geek dream, when the , standing before him in the body of a beautiful woman. And to add even more geek-cred, the writer of this particular episode is none other than Neil Gaiman, author of The Sandman, the film “Coraline,” and other Sci-Fi/Fantasy classics....

Doctor Who 'Curse of the Black Spot' Yo Ho Ho And A Bottle Of ?

May 7th, 2011 9:54pm EDT
Doctor Who
You can’t help but love the Doctor. Never one to miss a party, or to put a glum face on things, the Doctor loves to be in the middle of an impossible situation. This week, the Doctor pops up on a 17th century pirate ship, Amy and Rory in tow. And apparently, real pirates don’t say ‘Yo Ho Ho,’ much to the Doctor’s chagrin. Prepare to enjoy every cliché on the bounding sea – walking the plank, a child stowaway, treasure, mutiny, and a storm at sea, a ghost ship, a babe with a cutlass, and a curse. But no parrot!

With guest stars Hugh Bonneville (Captain Henry Avery) and Lily Cole (Sea Sir...
