Doctor Who fans will be surprised to learn that award winning singer Foxes has been cast in a Series 8 episode that is about to enter production, in which she will apparently use her voice to not only act, but sing!
Unfortunately we’ve never heard of Foxes (Southampton-born Louisa Rose Allen), but we’re more than certain that our hip Kasterborourite readers are more than aware of her international, Grammy award-winning stardom, top 5 album Glorious and three hit singles “Youth”, “Let Go For Tonight” and “Holding Onto Heaven”.
Chatting about her casting, Foxes told the BBC’s Official Doctor Who site:
I can’t believe I’m actually going to be in an episode of Doctor Who! Especially as it all came about from a chance meeting. I was playing a gig and got chatting to the show’s production team who’d been watching my performance. I was telling them how much I loved Doctor Who and next thing they invited me to be on it. I couldn’t think of a better place to make my acting debut than on one of the UK’s most iconic shows!
Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, revealed little.
We are completely thrilled that the amazingly talented Foxes is joining us on board … well, you’ll see. Let’s just say, the Doctor is finally catching up on his phone calls.
No further information was revealed, but you can familiarise yourself with Foxes below…
