If you haven’t seen ‘The Girl Who Waited’ DO NOT WATCH THIS. In fact, do not read any more of this post after this sentence. Stop. Now. We said stop.
Learn the inside story about Karen Gillan’s remarkable transformation into ‘Old Amy’ in the Tom MacRae-penned episode, from monster-movement classes to voice coaching to “ninja-style” fight sequences. See why Matt Smith calls her performance “one of the greatest… to date” and Steven Moffat say s “it’s an immaculate piece of acting.”
It really was amazing acting. It really convinced me that it had really happened, that this was an amy who’d been fighting, surviving, and waiting on her own for years and years.
