"And I remember thinking, ‘She’s really good, it’s a shame she’s so wee and dumpy!’ And she looked wee and dumpy in the video! […] I don’t know, I was honestly expecting a beachball to come in and then I walked past her in the corridor and this… giant flame-haired goddess walked past me and I thought ‘Right, ok. Not wee and dumpy then.’ In fact, slightly too tall for my comfort!"
Steven Moffat in an interview, sitting right next to Karen Gillan. (via stfu-moffat)
Because GOD FORBID she be slightly chubby. God forbid she be anything other than perfect. Because it’s not like Karen Gillan could have provided the same performance if she were slightly bigger and shorter. Noooo. Having a little bit of fat on your body makes you a terrible actor. Everybody knows that.
It’s interesting how much of his opinion of her as suitable for the part is based on her body. If she’s short/chubby, she’s unsuitable, even though she’s a really good actress. If she’s tall, she’s suitable for the part, and her acting doesn’t seem to come into it. But she’s actually too tall for the part, so really Steven Moffat is really open-minded and isn’t prejudiced about women’s looks, because he cast her EVEN THOUGH she’s too tall for the part.
“It’s a shame she’s so wee and dumpy” is only the beginning of the offensive here. Not only does he discount her if she’s too short or has a little weight, if she’s too tall, she’s ALSO inferior, because God forbid you have to look up to a woman. A beachball? I don’t even describe people I don’t like in those terms. And he says it to her face. I’m sure it was all “ahaha how funny” but anyone saying “damn you looked dumpy in preview” is really offensive.
