Joanna Page: Hurt is “just fantastic”
“He is so much fun. He’s got the most amazing stories, he’s just fantastic. And you see him on set and he’s got that amazing voice and he doesn’t do anything – he just starts saying the lines and you’re like, ‘Oh my god, you are the best actor I’ve ever seen.’”
There really isn’t anything you can add to that. But we will, as Page’s chat with the Radio Times revealed that the Welsh actress was thrilled to have been asked – although you’ll note that she didn’t audition, so the production team clearly knew exactly who and what they wanted for her role (which may or may not be Queen Elizabeth I).
“I’ve wanted to be in Doctor Who for ages,” “They just phoned and said, ‘Will you be in it?’ and I said, ‘Oh my god, yes, definitely.’ It was so much fun getting to act with the different Doctors but it was quite scary and intimidating at first.”
What is it now, June? We’ve still got another five months to discover just what John Hurt’s character is all about…
