While studying at Italia Conti Academy, Gillan was scouted by a modelling agency. She has said she would not give up her acting career to return to modelling, stating that she enjoyed modelling but acting was always her main interest and goal.
Gillan’s early television acting career included guest appearances on several drama series, with her first role being in an episode of Rebus, a role she obtained while still at Italia Conti Academy. She appeared in the Channel 4 film Stacked, playing the role of Ginny. She also appeared on TV in a leading role in a horror project entitled The Well, which was broadcast as a series of episodic short films on BBC Two and later as a web series on BBC.co.uk. Part of the BBC’s multimedia switch programming, the short episodes interconnect with online games that further explore the environments presented in the series.
In 2011, Gillan helped promote Fashion Targets Breast Cancer (FTBC) and the opening of Squirrel Ward in Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. During a 2012 interview on The Late Late Show, she stated that she had relocated to the US to star in the film Oculus and confirmed that she now lives in Los Angeles, California.
Gillan wrote and directed her first short film, Coward, which screened at the 2015 Edinburgh Film Festival, and nominated for several awards. Later in the year she wrote, directed, and starred in another short film called Conventional.
