'Youth' singer Foxes has landed a role in 'Doctor Who' and "can't believe" she will be making her acting debut on the iconic show
Singer Foxes has landed a role in 'Doctor Who'.
The 25-year-old singer - real name Louisa Rose Allen - will make her acting debut in an episode of the upcoming eighth series of the hit BBC sci-fi drama.
The 'Youth' songstress will perform a track on the show and appear in a new adventure starring Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor.
She said: "I can't believe I'm actually going to be in an episode of 'Doctor Who'! Especially as it all came about from a chance meeting. I was playing a gig and got chatting to the show's production team who'd been watching my performance. I was telling them how much I loved 'Doctor Who' and next thing they invited me to be on it. I couldn't think of a better place to make my acting debut than on one of the UK's most iconic shows!"
Executive producer Steven Moffat added: "We are completely thrilled that the amazingly talented Foxes is joining us on board ... well, you'll see. Let's just say, the Doctor is finally catching up on his phone calls."
The new series of 'Doctor Who' - which also feature guest appearances from Frank Skinner and Keeley Hawes - begins on BBC One in August.
