Doctor Who’s Matt Smith is getting used to John Pertwee, Patrick Troughton and David Tennant comparisons
The British actor took on the role of the titular time lord when David Tennant left the BBC show back in 2010 and ever since has found himself compared to other men who held the role such as John Pertwee and Patrick Troughton.
Matt confessed that he will be forever grateful to be on the list of males to play the iconic Doctor and isn’t offended or upset when people weigh up his performances, in comparison to the other ten stars.
He said: ”It’s par for the course, and something that you learn to live with and adapt to. People will have their favourites.
”For some people, it’ll be Patrick. For some, Pertwee. For others, Tennant. For me, to even be mentioned on that list, that’s enough of a thing – when you think about it, eleven actors!”
The 29 year old thespian also told Doctor Who magazine that he was forced to put his doubts and worries behind him very early on in his sci fi career, as he wanted to make the best of the role and put his all into his portrayal.
”When did I accept myself? I had to do it very early on. Even in moments of self-doubt, you have to stick to your instincts and be convinced about them. There is no other way, you’ve got to have faith in your ability.”
