Welsh songbird and extremely lovely all round young lady Charlotte Church has been approached – according to the Daily Record – to appear as “a raunchy, Satan-worshipping character”.
(Takes cold shower)
Anyway, as the Scottish Daily says:
A show insider said: “Charlotte is a big fan of Dr Who and she was thrilled when we approached her with the part.
“We couldn’t think of anyone better than Charlotte to play a teenage devil worshipper.
“The role is ideally suited to her – she is beautiful but can be very vampish when she wants Charlotte made her acting debut in the feature film I’ll Be There three years ago when she played the daughter of a fading rock star.
The singer said afterwards: “I was c ** p. I won’t be doing any more films.”
But she has been tempted back in front of the camera for Torchwood which is being filmed in her home city Cardiff and written by Swansea-born Dr Who writer Russell T Davies.
So that’s something to look forward to…
