Morales Wants Role In Who

With Doctor Who shooting stateside it’s difficult not to imagine every actor/actress with a love for all things Who not knocking on the door of the BBC’s travelling circus, demanding a role.

And none seems more demanding than Natalie Morales – the actress has been tweeting like crazy, creating hashtags such as #nataliemoralesondrwho in order to grab anyone, someones attention to just how badly she wants a role

A Tweet from the 10th October reads:

Doctor Who to shoot in the US this season. My campaign to be on it starts immediately. #nataliemoralesondrwho #forrealnotkidding”

and was followed up with:

Also, I will never give up on this- even after I die (my ghost will haunt the set): #nataliemoralesondrwho”

Desperate much? For those of you who don’t know who Natalie is (me neither) here are five fun facts about Miss Morales!

  • Morales is of Cuban descent
  • She is best know for having played Wendy Watson on the TV adaptation of The Middleman, the Viper Comic Series about a freelance fixer of ‘exotic problems’ such as assassin apes, hostile aliens and mad scientists.
  • The show often used pop culture and geek humour as references such as episode eleven where various Doctor Who characters were named during an alien invasion.
  • Despite the show being well recieved it was axed after 12 episodes
  • Morales has since made an appearance in Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps

The campaign however has gotten off to a rocky start with only 160 likes for a Facebook group made to help raise awareness for this noble cause.

So if you feel like giving a cute Cuban a helping hand up into the Whoinverse like her page, pester Steven Moffat on Twitter and write to your local MP and tell them Kasterborous sent you!

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.



One Response to Morales Wants Role In Who

    Oh man, for those of you who haven’t seen Middleman, go out and buy it right now; you can thank me later. Seriously, I am not kidding; it is (or was) one of the most thoroughly entertaining, clever, hilarious Sci-Fi series I have ever seen, and at only 12 episodes it doesn’t take long to watch the whole thing.

    I almost choked on my coffee when I saw this headline; having Morales on Doctor Who would be like having Nathan Fillion on Star Trek. Except cooler.
