Jenna Graces Radio Times Cover

Radio Times circulation should increase this week – not only is the listings magazine Doctor Who-themed, it also features Jenna-Louise Coleman on the cover!

Jenna-Louise Coleman on the cover of Radio TimesIn the Radio Times (out today), the actress discusses being in the public spotlight:

Matt warned me that there’s nothing that can prepare you for it. All I can do is enjoy it. I’ve noticed some changes – nothing huge. I have a really cool job and get to do these crazy things and you do have so many ‘pinch me’ moments. I’ve just been sent emails with pics of the Clara doll, which is kind of…

That isn’t completely normal, is it? People do come up to me, but so far they’ve really engaged with the show and the character and just want to chat. Yesterday a little boy walked past and said, “You all right, Soufflé Girl?” Which put a smile on my face. So it’s not obtrusive.

Jenna also gives a few teases about the Doctor Who Series 7 finale The Name of the Doctor and the mystery of the Impossible Girl :

In the beginning we see a Clara in the 60s, 70s and the 80s so there are a lot of costume changes, which I love. Always one for a bit of dressing up, me. Love a red carpet. Richard E Grant is back with his evil Great Intelligence, the Doctor’s greatest secret is revealed, all of his friends rally round to protect him and we finally understand why the Doctor has met Clara so many different times.

It seems that Matt has given Jenna quite a bit of advise, from not using Google to chose her next role carefully. The three month figure is interesting, tying up previous rumours that the Christmas episode would be filmed in September.

His first advice was never Google yourself and, now that I’ve got a three-month break, he said take your time and choose your next role carefully. I’ve read loads of scripts but nothing I’m really in love with.

    I’d buy that cover :-)

    All i have seen of Coleman (other than in character, and short youtube sort of interviews) was the appearance on Craig Ferguson. Nobody should look that up, it was not a terribly great appearance.

    Luckily, this interview seems to really bring her to life. She sounds more like the active, life loving young lady we were introduced to on a building top with Moffett.

      wait a sec, i just read a “The Independent” article after searching the radio times site. I think i may have an intrusive add on in my browser. Hmmmmmm,

      Ah well, she still seems spunky in that article.

    Also, for anyone who buys TV Pick, DON’T READ THE ARTICLE ON DOCTOR WHO! I’ve had the first part of the episode spoiled for me, which I’m NOT happy about.
