Karen Gillan has finished filming the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

The first Guardians of the Galaxy movie was released in UK cinemas in July 2014 and introduced the former Doctor Who actress as Nebula, the adopted daughter of Thanos.

Marvel’s follow-up, titled Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, is due for release in UK cinemas on 5 May 2017.

Gillan tweeted this week: “That’s a wrap on Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy 2! Thanks for giving me such an incredible experience and I can’t wait for everyone to see [it].”

She later joked: “Tried to take a Groot statue through in hand luggage. Got pulled aside by security and asked if I was bringing a science experiment through.”

The Selfie actress also posted a photo on Instagram, showing the various different body paints used to transform her into Nebula.
