Arthur Darvill Napping on his First Day on DW (Night of the Doctor Panel)
Do you what was nice? The journey of the character [Rory] matched my nervousness of being an actor, d'you know what I mean? You know, you turn up to start, and you are kind of panicked like a rabbit in the headlights. But then as the character progressed I felt more confident with it which was quite fitting.
I loved Rory. I think Rory was the best.
Can I add something to that story because he says he really panicked on his first day, but I remember distinctly Arthur took a nap on day one on set! On the chair like this *slouches over* I was like, 'God, he's relaxed.'
Your first day was the roof scene in The Eleventh Hour. You know when I go in and say 'Hello, I'm the Doctor,' with all the Doctors? That was Arthur's first ever day on Doctor Who. And he was like, 'yeah, I'm just gonna take a nap.' * lays back*
It's really boring running around by yourself.
