Connie Fisher – Companion?
Star of recent West End run of The Sound of Music (and winner of the BBC’s How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria) Connie Fisher is reprising her role as the singing nun at the Wales Millenium Centre – and would like to stay in South Wales…
Yes – it’s the second hottest job in British television drama, and the natural-looking Connie Fisher fancies travelling through space and time as the Doctor’s companion.
“I’m a massive Doctor Who fan and I would love to be Doctor Who’s assistant,” she says.
“I have always wanted to do it and now Billie Piper has gone and there are rumours Catherine Tate is going so I want to be first in line to replace them, particularly as it is filmed in Wales.”
She already has a rather unique link to the series too – not a flattering link, however…
“I was actually once compared to the monster that featured in a previous Christmas special,” says the actress, who admits to having had work done to straighten her teeth.
“Some evil journalist did a cartoon of me as a big spider with horrible fangs. It wasn’t very good but I have to admit that it did look like me.”
