Karen Gillan on Amy Pond. "She’s just a strong girl, woman, whatever. Oh, let’s just say she’s a strong female. (…) She’s not just standing around in awe of the Doctor. I guess Amy’s attitude is ‘Come on, impress me’. And she’s not going to mope around when the Doctor’s not there - she’s going to do her own thing, whether it’s fighting monsters in strange new worlds, or just getting on with her life.” (Radio Times).
