Pearl Mackie Meets Fans After 'Doctor Who' Casting Announcement

Pearl Mackie is all smiles as she greets fans outside a theatre in London, England on Monday night (April 25).

If you missed it, Pearl was just announced as the Doctor’s new companion, Bill, on BBC’s Doctor Who.

“I’m incredibly excited to be joining the Doctor Who family. It’s such an extraordinary British institution, I couldn’t be prouder to call the TARDIS my home!” Pearl shared in a statement.

She added about her Doctor, “Peter Capaldi is such a brilliant actor, and his Doctor is such a wacky and wonderful character, I can’t wait to see what adventures are in store for him and Bill throughout time and space. Reading the script at the audition I thought Bill was wicked. Fantastically written, cool, strong, sharp, a little bit vulnerable with a bit of geekiness thrown in – I can’t wait to bring her to life, and to see how she develops through the series.”
