Matt Smith: Workaholic

Matt Smith has spoken of his intense relationship with his work in a recent interview with the Daily Mail, pointing out that this intensity is part of the joy of being involved with something like Doctor Who.

Matt Smith as the Doctor in The Eleventh HourThe interviewer seems to want to find out more about Smith – and certainly succeeds, albeit not in the way they expected.

It seems that the Eleventh Doctor actor is a bit of a workaholic when it comes to learning lines – and he loves every minute of it.

‘My life is my work,’ he says. ‘The evenings are spent learning lines and, because there’s such a huge amount, that’s it, really. But I don’t mind. I’m happier when I’m working intensely. I find it rewarding.

When asked about Smith’s relationship with Brazilian singer Mayana Moura – who the Daily Mail themselves reported that he had split up from in July 2009, the actor responded:

‘Work is my girlfriend at the moment. I suppose any extreme artistic personality has an intense relationship with work. That’s the joy, that’s the gift.’
