Interview With Karen Gillan and Pom Klementieff + Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 Blue Ray Release August 22 #D23Expo

I bet you can’t believe I STILL have exciting things to share from my D23Expo trip, such an incredible experience.  This interview came as a complete shock. It was our second day taking it all in at D23 Expo and we were told we were doing an interview with Josh Snow.  To be honest our schedule was crazy busy, I didn’t even think twice about it…I just assumed Josh Snow was a real person…LOL I was wrong.

We entered into a closed off room backstage with an interview all set up and it turn outs it we got to interview two of my personal favorites from Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2., Karen Gillan, who played Nebula and Pom Klementieff, who played Mantis.

As some of you remember I actually interviewed these ladies on the Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 premiere trip I attended.  This time it was to celebrate Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 come to Blu-Ray and Digital on August 22, 2017! Now, you can watch our favorite characters save the galaxy from your own home.

Now only did we get to hear their excitement about the release, but they also gave us the scoop on some of the questions you’ve had about Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 and the cast.

Klementieff: They’re all really cool and professional, but also goofy. It was really fun actually. They’re all really great people to work with. They’re movie stars. They’re all really great and easy to work with.

Gillan: “I feel like it’s been received really well by the fans. When we were making it, it definitely felt like we were making something special, and everyone was delivering. It just felt like everything that was so good about the first film was kind of amplified in the second film. So I feel like we took it to the next level. And it would seem that the fans agree with that which is always the most important thing, so that’s cool.”


Klementieff: “I think maybe children are less scared of me now, and now they’re willing to take pictures with me, so I’m happy.”


Gillan: “The biggest challenge for me is probably the makeup process, just because it’s really intense. I mean, it takes about 4 hours in the morning to get ready. But it’s so cool the way I turn out. It’s so worth it, but it’s a challenge to get up at that time and go through that on a daily basis.”

Karen Gillan  and Pom Klementieff were yet again a joy to interview.  Make sure to get your copy of Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 on blue ray August 22..
