I’ve said it time and time again, that ever since her first appearance as Amy Pond in Doctor Who back in  2010, Karen Gillan is a girl going places!

Not content with starring in just one Hollywood blockbuster – the Scots lass currently has TWO big screen movies running at the same time – The Circle featuring Emma Watson and Tom Hanks as well as playing Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 alongside Chris Pratt. 

And if that wasn’t enough, the actress, who recently finished her directorial debut The Party’s Just Beginning now joins the ‘who’s who’ of Scottish cultural legends by scooping a Golden Can Award. Oo-er!

The hand-crafted Golden Cans specially created by Tennent’s acknowledge those who have had an outstanding impact on Scottish life and culture.

Karen, joins Irvine Welsh, Biffy Clyro, Mogwai, Jackmaster, Franz Ferdinand and Hudson Mohawke in the Golden Can hall of fame. 

The actress said: “Big thanks to Tennent’s Lager for choosing me as the next recipient of the Golden Can. I’m proud to join such a prestigious list of Scots, and can’t wait to see who’s next. Cheers!”

Alan McGarrie, Head of UK Brand Marketing at Tennent’s, said: “We created the Tennent’s Golden Can Award to recognised Scottish cultural legends and nobody would argue the Karen is a worthy recipient.

“Whether she’s travelling through time saving the galaxy (or just trying to take it over!) she’s always flying the flag for Scotland and helping prove we’ve got all bases covered when it comes to big screen talent.

“Our Golden Can hall of fame is filling up nicely, and we’ll be handing out more awards over the coming weeks and months. Let us know on social media who you think should be next.”

As I said, I have always been a big fan of Karen’s… Well done missy!
