Karen Gillan dared to wear red last night (September 27) for her appearance on Conan O’Brien‘s TBS chat show. And we’re all the better for it: she looked stunning. In a typically charming interview, in advance of her final episode (sob) of Doctor Who this Saturday, she taught Conan some Scottish phrases, spoke of being on friendly terms with the Loch Ness Monster, and, of course, compared ginger hair with her host.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
