Alex Kingston on Matt’s Departure & 12th Doctor Rumours
Alex Kingston was a guest on The One Show on Wednesday evening and she spoke about Matt Smith’s departure.
She said: “I wasn’t surprised because he and I had had a chat [about him leaving]. At some stage you have to move on. We did discuss when would be the right time in a young actor’s career if they were very associated with a particular role. You have to move on otherwise it becomes very difficult because you get typecast.”
Asked about the potential of a female Doctor like Helen Mirren, she said: “I don’t think I could kiss her though… There’s always a first time isn’t there.”
She also touches on whether River Song could be the Doctor: “She’s not. She’s married to him essentially!”
