It’s Mickey, But Not As We Know Him
While David Tennant spent what seems like ages slogging around the USA trying to find interesting roles after leaving Doctor Who, Clarke seems to have effortlessly waited for a top movie to come along and then bagged himself a part!
A key element of Doctor Who’s return in 2005, Clarke played Rose Tyler’s soon-to-be-former boyfriend Mickey Smith on and off between Rose and The End of Time, Part 2, developing the character from layabout fool to pan-dimensional freedom fighter (and not many can say that)!
Beyond Doctor Who Clarke has had success with home-grown movies Kidulthood and Adulthood. Regularly an intelligent Tweeter and apparently a man who goes for the best roles he can find, we wish Mr Clarke all the best for Star Trek 2 – although we doubt there will be any “bog monsters”!
(Meanwhile, Sherlock‘s Benedict Cumberbatch has also been cast in the movie – find out more at Cult Britannia.)
