GeekShot Exclusive Photo Series (Week 28)
Karen Gillan at the 2011 live Nerdist podcast recording during San Diego Comic-Con.
I was trying to figure out what to post this week and it came to me while driving in LA traffic. There are Selfie billboards and posters everywhere, so I went deep into the archives to find a photo of Karen that I hadn’t posted yet. This was the Nerdist podcast where, after the recording, Matt Smith and Karen handed out burritos to the attendees. It was a fun night and set the tone for what to expect from future live podcast that the Nerdist crew now does every year at Comic-Con.
As for the photo, there’s a bit of a dichotomy going on with respect to Karen. If you’ve seen her at a panel she’s typically smiling, laughing, making faces, and generally reacting to most everything going on around her. I find, however, that catching her in the moments where she’s just there, for lack of a better word, are my best photos of her.
