David Tennant worries about earning enough money to eat because he doesn't make "tactical" career choices

David Tennant worries about earning enough money to eat.

The 'Broadchurch' actor - whose wife Georgia Moffett is pregnant with their third child - insists he doesn't make "tactical" career choices and his only concern is to keep working.

He said: "You don't think particularly tactically as an actor, you just sort of bumble along. You'll be very lucky if there are two things you get to choose between - mostly as actor you're just going, 'What's my next job? Do I get to eat next month?' "

Despite his TV success, the former 'Doctor Who' star is always astonished to be offered work as he constantly feels he is about to be "found out".

He added to the Independent newspaper: "I still feel I'm about to be found out. So when a great script comes along you sort of bite the hand off really. It always starts with a script - you can spoil a good script but you can't make a bad script good. That initial reaction is very important because once you start investing in it you can't see it objectively again until it's finished."
