In case you were wondering, that’s the face of Karen Gillan.  Look closely and you can tell…I think.

She’s been a model in real life and as Amelia Pond on Doctor Who she even played a model, but never quite like this.  In a hilarious send-up of makeup advertisements, Karen Gillan got an undead makeover for a special The Walking Dead-themed episode of BBC America’s The Nerdist.

This video is only one of a series of z’Ombéal skin care ads that will be featured in the episode of The Nerdist to air on Saturday, April 6 on BBC America.  If you didn’t already have enough reason to stay home glued to the television while BBC America offers up the best Saturday night since disco, then here’s one more.

Editor for Three If By Space. Tom first became interested in science fiction & science as a very young child thanks to his parents. His earliest memories of enjoying scifi were sitting with his dad watching first-run episodes of the original Star Trek. Although a rabid fan of nearly all forms of scripted television, some of Tom’s favorite shows are Firefly, Falling Skies, Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, the X-Files and all versions of both Star Trek and Stargate. He also has a particular love for British television and dearly hopes to one day visit the UK.
