'Doctor Who' actress Jenna Coleman says she will miss the Time Lord Matt Smith and she's trying to persuade her boyfriend to go to a convention
Actress Jenna Coleman is trying to persuade her boyfriend to go to a 'Doctor Who' convention with her.
The 'Doctor Who' star, who has been dating 'Game Of Thrones' actor Richard Madden for more than two years, has revealed they like to watch each other's shows on TV.
The brunette beauty told The Sun newspaper: "We are big fans of each other's shows. It is good when we sit down and watch them together. I am trying to convince him to come to a Doctor Who convention with me!"
'Doctor Who's' Christmas special - which airs on BBC One on Christmas Day - will be Matt Smith's final episode as the famous Time Lord.
Jenna, 27, who plays his assistant Clara Oswald, will be upset to see him leave but says she won't miss his pranks on set.
She said: "I won't miss the general messing about on a day-to-day basis. He is really maddening.
"But I will miss his annoying face every day, his energy, the fact I have worked with him for a year and a half and still don't know what he is going to do every day, his enthusiasm and his love for the show. He has been quite an incredible Doctor."
The former 'Emmerdale' actress has struck up a firm friendship with the actor and sees him as her "brother."
She continued: "He is very dashing and charming and handsome and funny but that is enough praise for him!"
Jenna said there is "absolutely" sexual chemistry between Clara and the Doctor, after they kissed in last year's Christmas episode.
She revealed: "Clara is totally in love with him. We see in the 50th episode that she begins to truly get to know the kind of man the Doctor is and that leads into Matt's last episode."
