Appearing: Saturday and Sunday
Matt Smith is an English actor who shot to fame in the UK as the Eleventh Doctor in the BBC’s iconic science-fiction adventure series Doctor Who.
Smith made his television debut in Sally Lockhart Mysteries: The Ruby in the Smoke (2006) and won several further roles on television but was largely unknown when he was announced as the surprise choice for the role of the Eleventh Doctor in Doctor Who. He was younger than any other actor to have taken the role (Peter Davison was previously the youngest, aged 29 when he was cast in 1981). Smith starred in 49 episodes of Doctor Who (three short of his predecessor, David Tennant). He left in the momentous 50th anniversary year of the Doctor Who legend in 2013, which included starring in the 50th anniversary special, Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor (2013), which found him acting with Tennant, guest star John Hurt, and the oldest living and longest-serving actor to play the Doctor, Tom Baker.
Since leaving Doctor Who, Smith has appeared in the films Terminator Genisys (2015) and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016). He was nominated for the 2018 Emmy Award in the Supporting Actor in a Drama Series category for his role as Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh in The Crown (2016) and recently announced he will be appearing in the highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode IX.
