Lily Cole will play a dangerous seductress when she makes a guest appearance on 'Doctor Who' this Saturday (07.05.11).
The 22-year-old supermodel is set to terrorise a pirate - played by 'Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville - and his crew as she puts them under a spell and lures them away one by one in the BBC One sci-fi drama, only to be stopped by the Time Lord and his faithful assistant Amy Pond when the Tardis lands on top of the pirate ship.
However the Doctor (Matt Smith) is at first unwilling to help the captain who pulls a gun on him, and jokes: "You're big on the gun thing aren't you? Freud would say that you're compensating."
Lily - who has also appeared alongside Heath Ledger in 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus' - has previously revealed she was delighted to have landed a part in 'Doctor Who'.
She said: "It's a great script and a fun character and I am glad to be involved."
According to one insider, the flame-haired beauty "jumped at the chance" to feature in the series as she's a huge fan of the show.
The source added: "Lily's a big fan of the show and jumped at the chance to appear. It's a real ocean adventure."
