Jenna Coleman Confirms 'Doctor Who' Exit, Will Play Queen Victoria In New Series
Jenna Coleman makes her way into BBC Radios in London, England on Friday morning (September 18).
The 29-year-old actress confirmed the rumors this morning on BBC Radio with the exciting announcement that she’s headed to ITV’s new mini series, Victoria.
“I have left the Tardis – it’s happened,” Jenna shared about saying goodbye to Doctor Who, where she stars as companion Clara. “I’ve filmed my last scenes….It’s been in the works for a very long time. Steven [Moffat] and I sat down a year and a half ago and tried to work out the best place to do it and tell a really good story. We’re not going to give any details but it will happen at some point this season… We worked out a really good story arc out so hopefully people will love it.”
She added about taking on the titular role of Victoria, who ruled Britian for 63 years, “She is a vivid, strong, inspirational and utterly fascinating woman in British history and I can’t wait to tell her story.”
