Jenna-Louise Coleman, The actress, who rose to fame in the role of teen lsbn Jasmine Thomas in the soap Emmerdale, will star alongside Matt Smith’s timelord in the BBC series.
Coleman’s Doctor Who debut will be in the Christmas special after Matt Smith’s current companion Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) has made what writer Steven Moffat describes as a “heartbreaking” exit in the fifth episode of 2012.
Coleman’s other TV credits include ‘Waterloo Road’, in which she played disruptive sixth form pupil Lindsey James. She will also appear soon as Annie Desmond in Julian Fellowes’ new ITV1 Titanic drama.
At a BBC press conference this morning she said she was “beyond excited” to take the role, which she will start filming in May. She added that she had to become “quite a good liar” in the process of keeping the role a secret.
The show’s writer, Steven Moffat, said her partnership with Smith “came to life” during the auditions.
