What is to say about the creative visionary that is Matt Smith? Smith is known, undeniably for his role as the eleventh doctor on the hit BBC show, Doctor Who however ever since passing on the baton in 2013’s classic episode ‘The Time of The Doctor’, he has gone on to prove he is just more than just Daleks and Time Lords. Since he departed from the show, Smith has enjoyed success playing in the hit Netflix series, The Crown as well as having a prominent role in the delightful Anya-Taylor Joy film, Last Night In Solo.
However, fans of the former fez-wearing Doctor are no doubtably most excited for Smith’s role in the upcoming Game of Throne’s prequel entitled House of the Dragon. This particular series is set around three hundred years before the events of the original Game of Thrones show. The Series will chronicle the beginning of the end of House Targaryen; The events leading up to and covering the Targaryen war of succession, known as “Dance of the Dragons.”
Smith recently joined his co-star, the nineteen-year-old Emily Carey during the European premiere in Amsterdam on Thursday.

In other news regarding Matt Smith, during a recent interview, Smith touched on his experience working on Doctor Who. The former star discussed the moment he heard he landed to the role. Courtesy to Rolling Stone for the below quotes.
“I was turning up to work going, ‘F***, I can’t do this,’” he recalls. “I used to phone my dad, going ‘I can’t do this.’ And he’d be like, ‘Come on, get your head down, you can.’ The show is such a jewel in the BBC crown, and has such global appeal… if it doesn’t work, and you’re at the center of it, then there’s nowhere to hide. I remember walking down the street around that time and someone shouting, ‘Don’t break Doctor Who!’”
Smith would continue, also mentioning his former co-star, David Tennant: “What a Doctor, what an actor, what a bloke. Arguably David is…” he seems about to say ‘the one’ but, perhaps mindful of the esprit de corps among his fellow Time Lords, opts for “a totally seminal Doctor.”
