Gillan: “Matt looked mental”
Speaking to The Independent, Amy Pond actress Karen Gillan described Matt Smith as like a â€œmad scientistâ€ when she went for her second audition for the show.
Apparently Smith was â€œdazzlingâ€ and when Gillan first saw him in character and left her quite taken aback, something that would happen to anyone if they had a live interaction with Matt when he was playing the Eleventh Doctor! Karen said that:
“He’s much more other-worldly than the other Doctorsâ€¦he just looked mental. He was going so mental that he was spitting. I was thinking, ‘He looks like a mad scientist.’ “
The Doctor Who Christmas special, A Christmas Carol will be broadcast this month and Karen herself will be sitting down with her parents and tuning in to watch the show while the rest of us do!
When asked about her role in Series 6 of Doctor Who, she remained very secretive but did reveal:
“I think a lot’s going to happen to Amy. A lot!”
