Matt Smith 'not a Who fan'

Matt Smith has revealed he was not a fan of Doctor Who before he was chosen to play the famous Time Lord.

The 26-year-old was recently named as the successor to David Tennant, who is stepping down this year, making him the youngest ever actor to take the role.

However, Smith claims he did not hold out much hope of being picked as the eleventh Doctor, especially since he was not an aficionado of the show.

"I wasn't a Who fan. I have to be honest - I can't claim to have watched the show in its entirety or have been a follower as avidly as some people are," he said in an interview with Doctor Who magazine".

That's what I'm realising - that people love this show, people are avid, avid fans of it, and know it, and know its history and are part of it".

Smith is currently appearing in the BBC2 drama Moses Jones.
