Sally Sparrow Speaks!
Actress Carey Mulligan became the “greatest companion Doctor Who never had” in her single appearance as Sally Sparrow in the extremely popular Blink in 2007 – and her career has gone from strength to strength ever since, with a lead role in An Education alongside Alfred Molina gett8ing rave reviews.
She spoke to MaryAnn Johanson of the smashing FlickFilosopher recently, and Doctor Who fan MaryAnn snuck in a couple of Doctor Who related questions…
MAJ: If Stephen Moffat asked, would you go back and be Sally again?
CM: [laughs] Iâ€™d have to change my hair.Â I loved doing it. It was about two weeks of just running around screaming at things. Yeah, if he asked me back, Iâ€™d go back.
MAJ: I think fans would really be happy to see you come back…
CM: Aw, thatâ€™s nice. It was great fun, completely different from anything Iâ€™d done before.
MAJ: It was tough because it was an episode without the Doctor, and you completely carried it. I think that was the thing that stunned fans the most.
CM: But then your friends arenâ€™t too impressed. I tell them, â€œIâ€™m doing Doctor Who!â€ and they gasp, â€œWhatâ€™s David Tennant like?â€ And you go, â€œI dunno, he was nice for a day.â€
So – there you have it. The actress who is currently dating Shia Labouef and starring with him and Michael Douglas in Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps is happy to make a return to Doctor Who.
Not something you would want to miss.
