Can you imagine what it must be like to be Matt Smith?
“Well I won’t do anything to my hair today and most likely it’ll look like I’m a Greek god and oo! What’s this? Some awesome sweaters? And–mother of god–a scarf! Hot damn! What about this hat? Gotta wear the hat. Oops I dropped the hat now I’m going to pick up the hat but oops I’ve now bumped into a lady hi lady what’s that? You want to have sex with me? Well you only met me five minutes ago but maybe another time ok bye lovely to meet you! OO! Work! Now I get to act and be sad and stuff. What’s that Karen? They won’t allow me to have coffee ‘cause they’re afraid I’ll spill it again? Oh well I’ll just play with Charlie the badger again…oh Charlie you so funny. Oooh now I suppose I’ll act like a drunk giraffe again! Hooray! Oh time to go home? Ok I’ll just wear some silk pajamas to bed I think. K bye everyone!”
God, I think Karen brings so much of herself to the role as Amy. All that sort of mad, cooky energy that she has in her life. Just “Karen-ness”, Karen madness, and that feisty, Scottish, Inverness, “don’t mess with me”. There’s all that in there as well. We become closer every day. I’m very fond of her.
