Top 10 Sci-Fi And Fantasy Redheads
3 Amy Pond
From a bottle? Nope.
The Doctor has had several redheaded companions over the years, from Turlough to Mel to Donna – far more than you’d expect given the small proportion of redheads in the average population. He’s even complained, post-regeneration, about the fact his own locks haven’t gained a carroty hue, so clearly he’s a fan of all things ginger.
(Note: if he had regenerated as a redheaded Matt Smith, his red bow tie would have clashed horribly with his hair. These are the things costume designers have to think about, you know.)
However, nobody has flown the flag for ginger-haired folks on Doctor Who more than Karen Gillen. It sounds ridiculous when we write it down: of course she didn’t wake up one morning and announce, “Today I’m going to be ginger and become a role model to thousands!” It’s just her hair colour, and Amy Pond is more than just hair.
But the fact she’s become so popular, so recognisable and so beloved while sporting such a glorious barnet can’t be ignored. Amy Pond is an inspiration to us all.
