I think a lot of actors need validation. If you see truly amazing actors perform, they expose themselves to such an incredible degree. You can really see their pain. - Where she describes how she acts.
Day two: Who is your favorite companion, either full time or one off?
So my favourite companion isn’t really someone considered a real companion - River Song (aka Melody Pond, Melody Malone, & Mels).
There is so much I love about River, who is so fantastically portrayed by Alex Kingston. I think my favourite episode featuring River is Let’s Kill Hitler, because we see during that one episode the talents of Ms Kingston. She plays River from an immature and murderous psychopath to a grown up and sacrificing… well she’s still a psychopath apparently.
And of course, credit must be given to Steven Moffat for his fantastic writing of her character and plot arc. The mystery of River Song kept me guessing right up until it was revealed she was Amy and Rory’s daughter, and even beyond that. I think that was part of the fun of her character - you just didn’t know what would happen next. And this story (from her POV) about a girl raised to kill, who fought the terrible things she’d been taught, who chose to love instead of hate, who married but went on to make a life for herself without the Doctor, while still being a large part of his life… it’s just fantastic.
