Sometimes when an actor plays a role for a while it’s easy for them to feel a bit typecast, especially in sci-fi shows. You can’t blame them if they get a little frustrated by fans who have trouble moving on afterwards. While on the Matt Edmondson Show on BBC Radio 1, Doctor Who companion actor Arthur Darvill has a message for those fans*.
Arthur played companion Rory Williams for three years on Doctor Who. But he left the show in 2012, along with Karen Gillan (Amy Pond). Now he wants to make sure you know he is not Rory, but Arthur, a real actor. He also wants you to know he’s can sing, and he’s starring in the Tony award Best Musical Once, in London’s West End (after also having played the part on Broadway).
Oh yeah he was also in Broadchurch with David Tennant, come on people, google it
*It should be noted that Arthur has always been very appreciative of the Doctor Who fandom, and that this song is most certainly tongue-in-cheek. Come on people, Let it go.
