Ever since the announcement was made that he will soon be taking his final journey in the TARDIS, the question has been what will Doctor Who actor Matt Smith do next?
Well, recent revelations suggest that the 30-year-old actor has high hopes for his future, thinking maybe even light-years ahead.
While voicing his appreciation of JJ Abrams at San Diego Comic-Con, Smith responded to a hypothetical question about appearing in Star Trek: “Yeah, I would [work with] JJ, or Star Wars. So, just putting it out there.”
After Benedict Cumberbatch’s successful villainous performance in Star Trek: Into Darkness, perhaps the gateway has been opened for Smith.
Or maybe it’s a case of been there, done that: “Ben’s kind of done the English villain now, hasn’t he?” said Smith, “And he was great in it.”
It’s okay, Matt, everyone loves an English villain (just ask Tom Hiddleston!).
Either way, it would appear as though Matt has a promising future ahead of him, after recently finishing filming for How to Catch a Monster (directed by Ryan Gosling) and now preparing for his final moments as the eleventh incarnation of the BBC’s iconic Time Lord.
