Series 7 Casts A Villain and a Queen
American actor Michael McShane will be appearing in Series 7 of Doctor Who.
McShane (pictured right during the weekend filming) will be playing a villain in the fifth episode, which also features the Weeping Angels.
He announced his involvement on Twitter earlier this month: “Getting ready to leave for Cardiff to be a villain in Dr.Who!! YEEESSSS!!!”
He teased: “Spoiler Alert for Dr Who; in my episode the Doctor finds he’s got a;:/;;zapppppp GACK. sizzle, hissssss……”
He recently added: “Most fantastic time doing Doctor Who; best cast and crew I’ve been with in a while! Long live Gallifrey…”
In other casting news, it has now been confirmed via her CV that Riann Steele is playing Egyptian Queen Nefertiti in the second episode. We caught a few glimpses of her in the first trailer (below).
We’ve also received several emails from readers citing some casting from the IMDB’s Doctor Who pages. However, that site can be edited by anyone, so it is not a reliable source.
