To my heart I must be true: ARROW Star John Barrowman Dishes on The Dark Archer, DOCTOR WHO, TORCHWOOD and SCANDAL!
On another note, Alex Kingston just guest-starred on ARROW. Were you able to compare DOCTOR WHO notes at all?
JOHN: Actually, the first time Alex and I met each other was at Cameron Mackintosh’s house in London – the theater producer – he was celebrating his 25th anniversary to his partner and we were there and bumped into each other. We didn’t even say anything, we just looked at each other and went, “Aaaaaahhh! My god!” We got a glass of champagne and started talking about how it would be great if River and Jack – actually, she said River and Jack should have their own TV show. Then as we talked more, we realized that we’re both born on the same day. We’re both March 11th babies and we have so much in common. We like a lot of the same things and our attitude towards stuff is very, very similar. It struck a chord with us because that’s why River and Jack are very similar characters, in their attitude and their fun and their aggression, we are the same in real life – which is really ironic. So we struck it off. Then she came on ARROW, again we saw each other in the makeup trailer and just screamed. We both said, “Boy, there’s going to be some fan-gasms out there in a couple of weeks!” It was brilliant.
… and Clara Oswin is still a companion? The two most powerful flirting forces in the universe under one Tardis roof, with the Doctor caught right in the middle.
Just picture that.
I NEVER KNEW I WANTED IT UNTIL I WANTED IT.
AND THEN RIVER JOINS THEM FOR AN ADVENTURE
AND THE THREE OF THEM FORM THE INNUENDO SQUAD
WHILE THE DOCTOR IS JUST LIKE
