I don’t remember my first laugh, but I know that making people laugh was my way in. It was just what I was good at early on, and I went with it. Like a lot of people say, “Oh, I developed a sense of humor to traverse the world socially” — which is a word I definitely use, traverse. 

Happy 39th Birthday, Andrew David Samberg! (August 18, 1978)

Behind the scenes of The Idiot’s Lantern (Part Three of Four)

Excerpts from Jason Arnopp’s interviews in DWM #371

Euros [Lyn, Director]: “At one point, David had such a duck’s arse haircut that I was afraid we’d taken it too far!  Both their haircuts were a nightmare, cos every time their helmets went on and off, the hair had to be reset.”

Mark [Gatiss, Writer]: “I got so used to David having huge hair that it was quite a shock to see him with normal hair in the other stories!”

Euros discussing “Faceless Rose”:
“It really was Billie Piper standing there, mainly because it’s such an emotive scene for the Doctor. But she had crosses all over her face, so she and David just wet themselves!  At the beginning of that scene, she had a blanket over her head as well, and when that came off her hair kept standing up at a funny angle.  I think that was the scene with the most corpsing.  Seven takes.”

David Tennant Appreciation Week: Day Three

Happy 46th Birthday David Tennant (18th April 1971)

“I think in the end there’s just something so open about him, he just literally welcomes people in. You find yourself drawn to the screen, and then you sit down and you stay because you want to spend that hour with him. Actors like that are golden, people like that are golden.”
(Russell T. Davies on David Tennant)

I got offered a lot of teenage heartthrob roles. ‘Eddie the Eagle’ was the opposite. I wanted to show the world that there’s more to me. Simply looking good isn’t that exciting in the long run, is it? It’s fun to portray the more usual, not perfect people.

Happy 28th Birthday, Taron David Egerton! (10th November 1989)
