During #D23EXPO we sat down with Karen Gillian and Pom Klementieff minutes after they left the stage. They were still feeling charged up from being in a huge room with thousands of people excited for the MARVEL panel. They chatted with us in anticipation for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Blu-ray™ release. So let’s get right to the highlights of the interview!
KG :Oh, it was amazing. That was you guys. You were really loud. I mean, it felt electric to have like 7,000 people passionate about something that you’re involved with in some way, and it’s just like totally different sensations to anything I’ve ever experienced. It felt electric. PK :It was incredible, yeah. I mean, I think it was 7,000 people.
KG :Well, I wish we could. What can we say about the film? (Avengers: Infiinty War) Not very much, because they’re so secretive and also we, I mean, I didn’t even get a full script, so I’m just shooting scenes that I don’t know what the context is, and where it fits into the story. PK :Yeah, I have to harass them like every day to get the script, and then I can read it and then I have to give the iPad back. You know, there’s a password and it’s really, it’s really secretive, you know.
KG :It was an interesting, like we had to adapt, I guess, because we’ve only ever made anything Guardians related with James Gunn, and he created these characters and it was very much a collaboration with James in terms of bringing these characters to life. So then to sort of work with completely new directors was a different sensation, but it was also cool because they have something else to add to the table, another perspective on everything. Also, it was cool ’cause like for the first time, it’s like oh, we don’t know these characters the best now. It’s like okay, let’s do this.
PK :I was kind of scared at the beginning because we have a great relationship with James Gunn, and he’s an amazing director and he’s really close to his actors. And so like, we created this character together, so how is it going to be to work with someone else. Am I gonna do the right things, you know? Can I, maybe I could call you. You know, you can call me any time. So it was kind of like a little bit stressed out, but actually when we’re on set, it went really great, you know, and they’re really…
KG :They’re amazing. PK :… really, really amazing and they really complete eachother. I mean, it was incredible to get to work with these, incredible actors, you know, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, ah, who else? Best gig ever.
