She's preparing to bow out of her role as Amy Pond in Doctor Who over the next few weeks.
So it's no wonder Karen Gillan was keen to make a lasting impressing by flashing some leg as she arrived at the BBC Radio 1 studios earlier today (Friday).
The 24-year-old actress looked simply stunning as she showcased her enviable pins in a metallic blue mini-skirt, which featured a daring side split.

With the shimmering colour perfectly offsetting her porcelain skin, the Scottish beauty paired the garment with a black sweater emblazoned with cat eyes.
Blue suede brogues, a rose pink shoulder bag and black sunglasses completed the star's casual look.
Karen – who appears alongside Matt Smith in Doctor Who – is due to leave the sci-fi show in episode five of the upcoming seventh series.

A new chapter: Karen is preparing to bow out of Doctor Who in episode five of the upcoming seventh series of the show
The star will bow out of the series alongside her on-screen husband Rory Pond – played by Arthur Darvill – and be replaced by former Emmerdale actress Jenna-Louise Coleman for the Christmas special.
A recently-released 90-second promotional clip for the upcoming season of Doctor Who shows the Time Lord facing off against the deadly Daleks and a group of terrifying dinosaurs trapped on a spaceship, before becoming embroiled in a full-scale Western drama.
Meanwhile, Karen's alter-ego will depart the series in an episode set in New York.

Speaking at the launch of the new series, Karen revealed she was in denial about leaving the programme and at first refused to read the script for her final moments.
She said: 'I didn’t want to make it real. The gap between me receiving the script and actually reading it must have been a few weeks. But then eventually I did and it’s a brilliant, emotional episode.'
Darvill added: 'Karen wouldn’t read the script, which was tricky because I did read it and really wanted to talk to someone about it. But there was this awkward period when I knew what happened and Karen didn’t.'
The new series starts tomorrow (Saturday September 1).
