Jenna Coleman On Matt Smith's Last Appearance: 'It's Sad, But It's What Needs to Happen'

Check out this new still of Jenna Coleman from the upcoming Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special!

In a new interview with The Guardian, the 27-year-old actress opened up about Matt Smith‘s last appearance as The Doctor, boyfriend Richard Madden and Death Comes To Pemberley.

On finally reading her last script with Matt Smith: “I just read the script the other night. “I’d been putting it off for ages and ages, because once you read the last page, that’s it, the story is over. So I read 10 pages on the tube and I stopped, and then I picked it up again the other day and finished it. I was an absolute mess, an absolute wreck. But it’s good; it’s sad, but it’s what needs to happen. It’s perfect.”

On Death Comes To Pemberley: “Lydia’s basically very hysterical, and I’ve had a lot of licence to go wild with it,” Coleman says. “I went through the book and I wrote down all the words she’s described as and it’s like: ignorant, idle, wild, volatile, indulgent. The director was like: ‘We should want to slap you in the face.’”

On making things work with Richard: “We’re both young and I want us both to have our adventures and do our thing,” she says. “But if you want something to work, it’ll work.”

The Day of the Doctor airs Saturday, November 23rd.
