Kylie of the Damned
The online version of free newspaper Metro have reported Kylie’s admission that she was “petrified” when she began preparing for her role in Doctor Who’s Christmas Special Voyage of the Damned.
Kylie spoke to the Christmas Radio Times (which features a smashing Doctor Who section and cover, but since we haven’t been sent a copy we’ll not be showing you it…) about her role in Doctor Who, bad movies, and sister Dannii
“At the read-through I tried to look cool, but I was petrified. Then on my first day of filming, I realised I was in my spiritual home.”
The former Neighbours star added that she really identified with her character, saying: “I’ve a lot of affection for Astrid – she’s a dreamer, alone, and wants to travel. Perhaps that’s like me when younger, but I had opportunities and she’s still struggling.”
Kylie is also set to appear on the much-anticipated X Factor final on December 15, when she will be reunited with her sister and X Factor judge Dannii.
Despite being three years older than Dannii, Kylie admitted she envied her sister as a child, after Dannii appeared in a talent show.
“I was jealous because she was expressing herself, and I wanted to perform too. I went into Neighbours at 16, was probably a good actress at first, but I did dodgy movies like Street Fighter. Everyone makes mistakes, and I’ve made enough.”
And with little under 2 weeks until Christmas, get ready for more Doctor Who Voyage of the Damned coverage across the press…
