Actors have been auditioning for roles on BBC’s Doctor Who, and laine Hardy is among them.
Hardy, a native of Ireland, played the Doctor’s daughter Clara in the show’s first series, as well as the Doctor himself.
She later went on to appear in the BBC’s acclaimed comedy series Torchwood and, more recently, in Netflix’s Orange is the New Black.
Hardier is a big fan of the BBC series, which was created in 1963 by Ian Chesterton and Christopher Eccleston and broadcast from 1963 to 1966.
The Doctor was a “pioneer in science fiction and fantasy,” she said.
“So it was a great place to be.
It was a place I loved to be.”
Hardy said she was excited about playing the role of Clara in Doctor Who.
“I’ve been waiting to get a bit more time to sit and see what it’s going to be like to play a role that has this level of complexity,” she told the Irish Times.
“I have to get to know this character and then go, ‘What does this mean?’
I just love the character and I think it’s really good for the character.””
That’s what I wanted to do.
I just love the character and I think it’s really good for the character.”
Hardie said she enjoyed playing the Doctor.
“He’s very kind and gentle and has a good heart,” she added.
“It’s just a really wonderful character and he’s just such a great companion to me.
He’s really fun to watch.
He’ll be a great guy to work with.”
Hardies has been nominated for three Emmy Awards and has been in a long line of Emmy winners.
The actress has appeared on numerous shows including “The Doctors,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Downtons” and “House of Cards.”
