Doctor Who's Matt Smith Channels David Bowie - Exclusive!

Matt Smith channels legendary rocker David Bowie in this new feature for Empire magazine’s October 2012 U.S. Edition issue, provided exclusively to for a first look!

Here is what the 29-year-old Doctor Who star had to share with the mag:

On the star he embodied for the shoot: “I’m a huge Bowie fan. I loved the Olympic Opening Ceremony because I thought, ‘How amazing, the plethora and heritage of music we have. Incredible! Wonderful!’”

On playing Doctor Who: “He does everything very quickly because he’s got to. Just carrying the energy I need to carry through the week does feed into your weekend somehow. I’m not great at resting and I’m not great at sleeping. It’s infuriating. I think because I learn lines ’til late at night my brain’s still ticking. I lie in bed and think, ‘Oh bollocks, I can’t sleep.’”

    Two more days and Dr Who’s new season begins. I have been a Whovian for over 20 years. I share a love of David Bowie with Matt. He looks great in these photos. I am actually watching Dr Who on BBCA as I type. This episode has the Ood in it. LOL.

    Cannot wait for the new series this weekend. Started watching Doctor Who with Eleven, so it’s going to be heartbreaking to watch the Ponds leave!
