Karen gets raunchy for her comedy programme

Karen Gillan isn’t afraid to strip off on screen.

The ex-Doctor Who actress, 26, has gone topless for her role in new US show Selfie, in which she plays a woman who’s obsessed with taking photos of herself.

Karen – who sports heavy face make-up and lashings of red lipstick – covers her chest as she perches on a bed and pouts into the camera.

She rocks her trademark long red ‘do, presumably with a wig as she shaved off her hair to appear in sci-flick Guardians Of The Galaxy last year.

Karen stars alongside Harold & Kumar‘s John Cho as Eliza Dooley in the sitcom, which is loosely based on musical My Fair Lady.

The Scottish star has made quite an impact in the US since leaving her role as Amy Pond in Doctor Who two years ago.

Selfie is set to premiere in September and Guardians Of The Galaxy will be released in America next month.
