"Matt Smith: I did a movie called How to Catch a Monster, which I’m really excited about. It’s gonna be cool. But Steven Moffat just looked at me and he was like: ‘Damn you and Ryan Gosling and your shaved head' because I haven't got quiff now and I need the quiff (for Doctor Who).
It’s a Ryan Gosling movie, right?
Matt Smith: Yeah, he wrote it and directed it. I was really impressed with him. He’s a brilliant guy. It was great. We filmed it out in Detroit, and it’s exciting.
Was it hard not to kiss him all the time? ‘Cause he’s super handsome.
Matt Smith:Yeah, and really clever and kind as well. You know when someone’s good, but also they’re a good bloke. He didn’t disappoint.
Was he a doctor who fan?
Matt Smith:No, what’s weird is, I’m playing a real lunatic in this film, and the way I got the audition was, randomly, he (Ryan) saw that speech from the Pandorica opens and he said, ‘Imagine if there were no spaceships there, and the doctor was just on his own, and he wasn’t talking to anyone’.
He’d just be a mad man without a box!
Matt Smith: Yeah! So I went and I did the audition and I got the job." —
