Matt Smith is the star of Doctor Who

Reinventing the Actor

What happens to an actor after they’re done playing the Doctor for a long period of time?

Sometimes they have a rich and varied career, sometimes they stick to smaller roles or shy away from acting for a while until the dust settles and they’re no longer seen as “the Doctor”.
Matt Smith reckons that the best way to move forward once he finally finishes playing the Eleventh Doctor is to completely reinvent himself as an actor and move forward from there:

“Any actor worth his salt can reinvent himself. In 10 years time I’ll be playing very different parts.”

Smith certainly has the character and personality to change the way he tackles television or film roles, you do get the feeling that he could play so much more than just the Doctor, it would certainly be interesting to see what other characters or parts he would take on once he becomes “post-Who”.

But how long will that be exactly until we say goodbye to the eleventh Doctor? Well, no one can tell for sure, Smith as ever remains coy about how long he’ll remain playing the part. The actor is certainly taking it year by year until he decides to move on.

Until then, we’ll just have to make the most of the character and the actor for as long as we’re lucky!
