Famously “sacked” last year according to the Sun, Freema Agyeman (who was of course NOT sacked) is currently reprising the role of Martha Jones in Torchwood, and will return to Doctor Who during Series 4 – but how did she feel about that Sun report?
To recap – Freema made a bright start to Doctor Who, after appearing as Martha’s cousin Adeola in Army of Ghosts and then returning in Series 3 as Martha.
A report midway through Series 3 in the Sun claimed that she had been sacked with the implication being that she had been considered disappointing.
This of course was utter nonsense, and prompted Kasterborous.com to refuse to use The Sun as a source wherever possible, and we will not link to the paper’s website until such a time as they apologise to the actress.
“Everyone wants to know the facts on such a popular show and you canâ€™t give them out before programmes, so people add two and two to make five, and jump to the wrong conclusions,” she says.
“I knew where the character was heading when I joined last year but we decided not to say anything when this story was printed.
“When I started as Martha, Russell didnâ€™t know what her fate would be but you saw it panning out.
“Martha was heading towards unrequited love, we know what her family went through, and all that year of travelling, so no way was she going back to the Tardis full-time.
“Now sheâ€™s coming back and going to Torchwood. Itâ€™s an excellent idea. I feel really privileged and chuffed. Itâ€™s a shame something so positive turned into something scandalous and with a suggestion of ill feeling.”
You know everytime I read something she’s said, I just wanna give her a kiss.
Freema Agyeman is just bloody lovely!
