Following on from last week’s interview with Amy Pond actress Karen Gillan, Smith also reveals that he’s become quite fond of the show.
“I’ve become a real fan, I know it sounds very vain, but I do look forward to the ceremony of watching the show on a Saturday night.”
Smith’s honesty is refreshing. His job – playing “the most charismatic man in the universe” – is a challenge, he says. The charisma part is more than likely only the tip of the iceberg, of course.
“If you play him consciously charismatic, he instantly loses the charisma. Of course, really charismatic people donâ€™t have to do a thing. They just are. Iâ€™m still finding my way on that one, but I like to think it gives me something creative to play with.â€
“I’ve never got away with being the handsome leading man. I suppose I’m the peculiar, odd lead, which may work in my favour.”
