Here’s an interview made with Matt Smith in the National Television Awards (NTA’s).
Matt Smith wants a male companion when Karen Gillan departs Doctor Who.
The 29-year-old actor – who bagged the Male Drama Performance gong at last night’s (25.01.12) National Television Awards for his role as the Time Lord in the sci-fi series – admitted while he always thought he and Karen would have “different journeys” in the show, he won’t be following in her footsteps and leaving anytime soon.
He told BANG Showbiz: “I’m really pleased with the award. We always try to do the best every day and try to improve the show as best we can.
“I wouldn’t mind a male companion now that Karen has left. I’ve always believe me and Karen would have different journeys in ‘Doctor Who’.
“I’m sad she’s left, but the show is bigger than all the actors who have been in it. I have no plans to leave, though. I’ve definitely got a year left in the show and I’ll take it from there.”
