TWoP: Oh really?
Gillan: I'm gonna tease you.
TWoP: So are you working on anything else that we can see you in?
Gillan: No, because when you finish filming Doctor Who, there's a lot of stuff that goes after it; there's so much stuff to do, lots of promotion. And there's a game coming out, which is really exciting.
TWoP: What kind of game?
Gillan: A computer game. I don't know if it's coming out over in the US or just in the UK. Yeah, so that's really exciting. And for now, I'm still in Doctor Who mode.
TWoP: What would be your dream role after this?
Gillan: I'd love to do something [like] Trainspotting. And I'd like to do some theatre at some point. One of my favorite films is Little Shop of Horrors, so I'd love to do that, though I'd make a terrible Audrey -- I tend to murder songs. I love Little Shop of Horrors; it's got a dark side to it, so that's quite interesting.
TWoP: Have you met any of the American Who fans yet?
Gillan: Well we had a screening [Monday] night, and they were one of the best audiences we'd had, genuinely. They were really supportive, and they were sort of applauding and stuff, which is really nice. And the Q&A with them was brilliant. We just didn't expect to have that sort of reception over here. It's a real boost, and you just want to get it out there for everyone.
TWoP: Are you having fun in New York?
Gillan: Yes! This is my first time in New York City, and I just keep walking around pretending I'm in Sex and the City.
TWoP: So has your mom seen the first episode yet? What does she think?
Gillan: She has! She loved it! And she's the one I was worried about.
TWoP: Yeah, you always have to worry about pleasing your mother.
Gillan: Exactly, and she's not just my mother, but a massive Whovian! So yeah, it passed the Mother Gillan test.
