The British actress Emma Watson could be the next person portraying Doctor Who!
Ever since the distant 1963 when the TV series Doctor Who aired its plot the main character has traveled through tons of universes and has had tons of reincarnations – twelve, if we have to be exact. Up till nowadays twelve brilliant British actors have played the role of the Doctor and they have all been male. But now it seems that there could be a slight change in Doctor Who’s appearances and he could become a female.
Talks about the new Doctor Who have been around ever since Peter Capaldi, the latest person to play the iconic character, confirmed that he will leave the show in 2017. And since tons of rumors claim that BBC will choose a woman to portray the main character in the popular Sci-Fi series, everybody’s rooting for Emma Watson to be the chosen one.
Metro UK, one of the biggest British news agencies, suggested few solid reasons why Watson should be the next Doctor Who. Not only is she an avid philanthropist, just like the rest of the actors, who went on to star in the show, but she’s also proven that she’s fun, witty and enjoyable to be around through tons of interviews. On top of that, from the Harry Potter trio that made the entire world fall in love with the popular characters Harry, Ron and Hermione on screen, she has the most successful post-Potter career, because she has proven that she’s a brilliant actress regardless of her various roles. And, of course, Watson as Doctor Who would most definitely bring something new and unique to the show after nearly 50 years.
Since the early 1960s William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi have portrayed the iconic character. It’s about time a female took the lead.
