TV stars Matt Smith and Karen Gillan swap Doctor Who for Shakespeare
DOCTOR WHO star Matt Smith and sidekick Karen Gillan are planning to team up again … in Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
Inverness-born Karen - who plays the Time Lord’s companion Amy Pond - wants to land the role of the doomed king’s infamous wife.
And Matt jumped at the chance of joining her on stage.
Karen, 23, said: “I want to be Lady Macbeth, it’s a role I have always wanted to play.”
Matt, 28, added: “And I want to be Macbeth, so let’s do that. I’d quite like to do a play.”
The pair have starred in the smash hit BBC sci-fi show since last year.
Karen is to make her West End debut in October in John Osborne’s play Inadmissible Evidence.
The pair would be following in the footsteps of former Tardis team  David Tennant and Catherine Tate, who are appearing in Shakespeare’s  Much Ado About Nothing.
