Since leaving Edinburgh College, Karen Gillan went on to study in London at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts before appearing in popular TV shows such as The Kevin Bishop Show and medical drama Harley Street. Karen’s popularity has seen a sharp rise since she appeared as Amy Pond - Dr Who’s assistant in early 2010.
Karen says “PASS is a fantastic stepping stone to a career in the arts. Through the encouragement and support and the most high quality of training I realised I could pursue a career in acting.
