“I don’t know if we’ve ever had a Welshman in the role …”
It is not yet clear who will replace Jodie Whittaker as the next Doctor in the next seasons of Doctor who. But the former tenants of TARDIS obviously have a strong voice in decision-making. This is the case of Matt Smith, in post in seasons 5, 6 and 7. He has a clear name in mind: that of Rhys ifans.
The Welsh actor is best known to fans of Harry potter for his role in the final installments of the saga. He was Xenophilius Lovegood, the father of Luna Lovegood. He was also a Marvel villain, as Curt Connors, aka The Lizard, in The Amazing Spider-Man. And then of course he will forever be the unforgettable Spike, Hugh Grant’s lovable and endearing roommate in Love at first sight in Notting Hill.
“You know who would make a brilliant Doctor who in my opinion ? Rhys ifans ! Wouldn’t that be pretty cool? “ launched Matt Smith in a interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “I don’t know if we’ve ever had a Welshman in the role … Me, I support Rhys!“The campaign for 2022 is on.
