Current time Lord, Matt Smith, has revealed that the highlight of his Doctor Who career so far has been snogging Jenna-Louise Coleman, who plays his new assistant Clara Oswald in the hit BBC sci-fi entertainment show!
Since joining the cast of the hit show as the iconic Doctor, Matt Smith has survived death a few times, as well as finding and losing love, making friends with a Dalek all whilst travelling the universe, protecting it and the entire human race, but it is locking lips with luscious Jenna, who has also starred in ITV soap Emmerdale and the BBC mini-series, Titanic last year, which is Smith’s best-loved moment!
The Doctor and Clara kissed during last year’s Christmas special, Coleman’s Doctor Who debut, and it seems that the pair have developed quite the relationship off-set too, with Smith admitting that they often hang out watching cartoons together!
Speaking to a US TV magazine, Smith explained why that kiss was his favourite moment:
“My favourite moment? I like our kiss, that was quite fun, even though it was hell to do. We actually did a couple of different versions there might be some outtakes.”
“We have bonded over cartoons. I constantly watch The Simpsons and an English cartoon called The Racoons and Gummi Bears.
“I was obsessed with ninja films, and the Teenage Mutant Nina Turtles I used to love that as well.”
The actor went on to explain to the American publication how much he loves the states after they filmed an episode in New York, and how he would love to film more there:
“If I could film we’d film every episode of Doctor Who in New York. I have an affinity with the city. It has some wonderful locations and it is devastatingly vast and huge. Central Park looks amazing on camera.
“We didn’t realise how big it was until we filmed there, but the fans have been so supportive. The British are lot more reserved, and the North Americans have a lot more enthusiasm. I love it when people dress up as the Doctor and Amy. I like all that – that is the spirit of the place and there is a freedom to be enthusiastic there, which is hugely enjoyable.
“That is what’s great about working in science fiction shows.”
On the subject of his current, iconic role, the actor continued:
“I won’t get many jobs like this, and I’m aware of that. I love playing the Doctor.
“And I won’t get many jobs where the fans are so much into the show.
“It makes me feel alive. It’s a once in a lifetime experience and to be part of a show that evokes these responses from people is cool.”
