Actors have a lot to juggle between lengthy make-up sessions, learning their lines, preparing for roles, and managing their personal lives as well. Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan knows just how difficult that balancing act can be as the Nebula actress shared a hilarious story of how she had to attend a couples therapy session while dressed up as her GOTG Vol. 3 character.
Why did Nebula attend therapy?
The Scottish actress has been married to BriTANicK comedian Nick Kocher since May 2022. Due to their hectic work and personal lives, the duo attends couples therapy via Zoom. This led to the incredible scene where Gillan forgot she had couples therapy on a shooting day, so she had to show up in full Nebula facepaint.
It’s extra funny when considering the personality of Thanos’ adopted daughter. Although it is a bit more in like with the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of the character as she’s seen much redemption compared to her typical comic depictions.

“In the film, our beloved band of misfits are looking a bit different these days,” reads the synopsis. “Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team around him to defend the universe along with protecting one of their own. A mission that, if not completed successfully, could quite possibly lead to the end of the Guardians as we know them.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is once again written and directed by James Gunn. MCU vets Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Dave Bautista, Sean Gunn, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel return to reprise their respective roles as Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Kraglin, Nebula, Mantis, Rocket, and Groot, while Maria Bakalova returns as Cosmo the Spacedog. The sequel also features the introduction of franchise newcomers Will Poulter and Chukwudi Iwuji, who portray the roles of Adam Warlock and High Evolutionary.
