Foxes singer: “I couldn’t think of a better place to make my acting debut”


British singer-songwriter Foxes – real name Louisa Rose Allen – is to sing in the new series of Doctor Who as well as make her acting debut.

Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, teased Foxes appearance by saying: “We are completely thrilled that the amazingly talented Foxes is joining us on board … well, you’ll see. Let’s just say, the Doctor is finally catching up on his phone calls.”

Foxes is a Grammy award winning singer, best known for hit singles Youth, Let Go For Tonight and Holding Onto Heaven from her album ‘Glorious’, which entered the UK chart at number 5. The singer commented on her new role: “I can’t believe I’m actually going to be in an episode of Doctor Who! Especially as it all came about from a chance meeting. I was playing a gig and got chatting to the show’s production team who’d been watching my performance. I was telling them how much I loved Doctor Who and next thing they invited me to be on it. I couldn’t think of a better place to make my acting debut than on one of the UK’s most iconic shows!”

Foxes joins the already announced list of guest stars which includes, Frank Skinner, Ben Miller, Tom Riley, Keeley Hawes and Hermione Norris. They will be joining the shows lead stars Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman.
