    My brain still struggles with the fact that Karen is both Amelia Pond and Nebula. Just a credit to what an incredibly talented actor she is.

    People don't realize just how much work goes into making a movie. Thank you so much for giving a behind the scenes tour of a little bit of what you and all actors really have to endure each and every day to create home entertainment for everyone. ❤❤❤❤

    I love being able to see the faceless people that actually make these films possible, it should be normal for actors to be able to film their experiences on set. You know as long as they aren't actively making filming harder or releasing spoilers ahead of the movie's release. But really, this shows you that actors jobs aren't always as "easy" as they seem.

      most of them get their name in the credits but ill never pay attention or care to know who they are. seeing their faces just makes it so much ... human.

    Mad respect. The idea of sitting doing all the makeup for just one day is so much work and patience, then you consider she's done this more than 150 times. And mad respect for the makeup and support team.

    Nebula was surprising in Vol 3. She had a big character arc since Vol 1 and was really charismatic and likable in this film.
    Also, this was so cool to watch

      @Neftali FigueroaAfterwards she and Rocket were the only Guardians left, so they really bonded during the Blip. Notice she was the first to draw a weapon on Kevin Bacon?

    I love this! This video did a great job of humanizing actors/celebrities. It was absolutely great getting to see the busy life of an actor and all the crazy amount of work that goes into each day! Also, Karen, we all think you are beautiful, with or without the fresh makeup and ring light!

  • Teacher

    All Guardians of the Galaxy characters are unique. Nebula had the best built heroic arc. A humanoid with black eyes that manages to convey more expressiveness than many other characters. The subtlety of Nebula's personality is what impresses the most. A good actor is the one who knows how to make a cold android have so much life like Nebula.

  • Preston Jones

    One thing I really miss about DVDs is all the bonus material/behind the scene content. I would always buy deluxe 2 disk sets for the extra content and commentaries. We just don't get that with todays movies.
    Sometimes a streaming service might to little featurettes about a movie, but they don't come around that often.
    It just really offers a whole new side and dimension to film making and the whole crew and production team efforts and after you see what it takes, you have a whole new appreciation to the film and even have a bit of conversation to add during a certain scene. Like how difficult or technical a scene was. How many hours it took to put an actor in that make up. Maybe they had to go home with partial prosthetics. Or sometimes a scene where an actor was injured, but it looked like nothing happened.
    Kinda lame you would get in trouble for doing something like this. I think it's great and I think a lot of people would want to see what goes on while in production.
    Damn, that trailer though. I'll take one of those.
    Btw, I just watched vol 3 the other day. It was really good. I think I cried about 3 times cause of the story with Rocket.

    thank you for doing this! I may be late to the game, but I find this behind the scenes stuff fascinating! also its so sweet to see someone giving credit to the people behind the scenes that are equally just as important for making all of this happen. also, how am I just NOW realizing that Kirk (Sean Gunn) from Gilmore Girls is in GOTG?? I need to re-watch. thats kool he stood in as Rocket lol. loved you in Jumanji and literally didn't realize you were Nebula too until a friend told me while we were watching Jumanji lol

    I have to say I've always thought Nebula was such a fully formed character from day one. The straight/dry comedy and delivery of lines is perfect. Keep up the good work and thank you for sacrificing so much of your limited free time to make a video for us!

    Thank you for this chance to see what it is like and how much hard work from every level of employee that goes into just a day of making a movie.

    You are a very talented artist and I really enjoy your movies but I loved that you did this for us.

    • raagnarz
      raagnarz 4 months ago +75

      Sad ain't it that was one of the whole points of dvd/bluray, the storage would allow for so much more content for release like behind the scenes stuff. Now in the age of streaming where storage isn't an issue we get nothing...god dammit lol. FYI thank you Karen for doing this, I love this kind of stuff.

    • sonozaki
      sonozaki 4 months ago +50

      It seems inherent, to be honest, as if vlogs are just naturally the best evolution of behind-the-scenes. Something about it being done from a personal viewpoint -- what she says, who and what she chooses to record, and the tone she sets from her emotions about each part of the process -- is a lot of fun. Because someone else in a different role, whether a co-star or a member of the crew, could make the process seem like an entirely different film!
      A professional project is best for posterity and serious education but this, for fun insight and knowledge, is great.

    Such an awesome & brilliant actress. Thank you for sharing this part of your life with all of us fans! The effort this must take is tremendous, seeing how busy even one day of filming can be.
    My favorite tid-bit was when Mr. James Gunn asked “…hey do you want to know what you’re going to be doing today?” And with a quick and easy response, a psyched Karen says “…I am going to be flying a plane!”
    The ease in which you let the director know that you’re completely dedicated and aware of your part/scene is truly inspiring and awesome! Thanks again Karen, you have ALWAYS ruled!!

    I LOVE this!!!! This is the kind of content I wish more stars created. Real, genuine, authentic looks at what filmmaking is really like. The army of people who work behind the scenes. The friends and coworkers. You don't get this feel or insight from highly produced Blu Ray extras.
    I've been subbed to Brie Larson for two years because I was hoping she'd make exactly this. Definitely subscribing here in case you make more vids about other films! Doesn't have to be Marvel either. Small films would be interesting too!

    This is the kind of "Behind the scenes" we need more of. Showing the real people, the real process, shining a light on what is always a dark secretive void. So much goes into these movies, it's important to see that appreciated.
    And it's even more amazing with you as the guide! James Gunn: A day in the life of Nebula? So Mean all the time?
    Actually the polar opposite. What a joy.

    Man, They really did a great job at hiding all that hair! I genuinely didn't even think about that with how convincing the character was. It's funny, That was the first thing I noticed in El Camino when Walter White walked in. The hair was not well hidden and it really took me out of the scene once I noticed his bigger head but here it's just straight-up 100% flawless with somehow 4x more hair. And you know it's flawless when nobody even notices. Genuinely impressive. I'm sure this was very well planned with the head piece to be fair but still. Wow

      @David Po my son had me watch Jumanji, and then had me watch infinity war, and the endgame, and all the guardians of the Galaxy, and I stumbled upon the fact that that girl plays nebula, and he couldn’t believe it.

    Karen Gillan has one of the best personalities I have ever seen. Had a celeb crush since Dr. Who, but this is the first time I have ever seen a glimpse of how amazing of a person she actually is in real life! They say don't meet your heroes, but this would clearly not apply to Karen, she seems delightful! Even her driver likes her, and I have heard horror stories about other actors and actresses. Just keep being you Karen!

    I am grateful for these BTS scenes. This is historical, you know. Guardians is an important movie series and your record will be part of movie history. Cheers and continued good fortune to you in the future.

    Hey Karen!
    My daughter, Charlotte, filmed as a Star Child in a scene with you where she is holding onto your leg. She told me that you two had some wonderfully sweet interactions between takes and that you gave her awesome encouragement when she had some ideas for how to play her character. 😊 In case you see this, I want to thank you for being so generous with her. Joyful memories for a lifetime! 💛

    I’ve always enjoyed watching Nebula as a character because she looks so different to Karen I can completely believe in her. What a great behind the scenes episode!

    This is way better than other "behind the scenes" shown. Probably because we get to see it from an actors perspective.

    This was so much better then most behind the scenes. Lot of times the behind the scenes you get from the studio are over-produced, fake, and hardly gives you a feel for the real cast and crew working their ass off to make the movie. Karen you're not afraid to show your human side and others should take note!

      Exactly, they also use the behind the scenes for comercial purposes. It's just feels like they have robots working

      because studios dont want people to understand that a movie isn't built on a hierarchy but is built by all parts operating as one, even if it has someone's vision in mind. Humanizing the people that make movies real could undermine that "value" they bring to the table as executive producers.

    Wow that brought up so many memories of 2021when we filmed Obi-Wan Kenobi. I was blessed and got to be one of the 42 stormtroopers in Episode 5. Nothing like the work you do, but the sets, APs, the crew; I'd fogotten a lot. Also forgot about all the covid masks and tests.😢
    I loved this, thanks for sharing. Loved the movie, and Nebula is one of my Favs!!

    Actually so nice that we get to meet the "smalller" members of the team. Like the driver. He seems super sweet. People sometimes forget that a movie is not just the actors, writers and directors. There's a whole load of people that don't get the appreciation they deserve.

    What a charming and attractive woman. I absolutely love her hair and her accent. It's so much fun seeing the transformation the actor goes through to become the character. She looks completely different, of course, and also has no accent and a lower voice. As for the movie, watching what goes into her makeup and costume, and realizing that this is just a small part of the work going into the movie. I extrapolate from the people and the work they do during this video, and I am amazed by how much imagination and coordination of people and equipment must be necessary to make a movie like this is. Thank you for sharing this video.

    Thanks for that. How ya' goin'? I really like the way you record all the voices and then work on the lines and also the part about saying them (said lines) twenty times really fast. Those are great exercises. It was very kind of you to share when you already lose so much in the way of personal space. Keep up the good work, but don't be too hard on yourself.

    This is by far the best "Behind the Scenes" footage I've ever seen. A lot of behind the scenes stuff shows like 1 second of anything useful and the rest of the time people talking about it. It's nice to actually see it all for once, completely unedited.
