Gavin & Stacey star Joanna Page has denied speculation linking her to a significant role in Doctor Who in 2011.
We reported earlier this week how one tabloid had claimed the actress – made famous in the Welsh sitcom – was apparently being lined up for a key role in the next series of Doctor Who
If Page herself is to be believed, there is little of substance to the story, seemingly to her regret.
“It’s not true,” she told PA. “A friend was telling me about that. I was like, ‘I wish it was true’.
“I think I’ve got to be the only Welsh actress who has never been in Doctor Who so if someone would like me to be in Doctor Who I would love the part.”
Doctor Who’s 32nd season starts shooting in a few months time.
