I would panic: Jodie on keeping 'Doctor Who' casting a secret

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Jodie Whittaker says it was really tough for her to keep her lips sealed on the "Doctor Who" casting details.

The actor, who has become the first female to grab the role of the iconic Time Lord, says she was panicking during the whole process as there was a long gap between finding out she had got the job and the being made public, reported Spy.

"I didn't know the exact details but I knew there was going to be an attempt at a brilliant reveal - and I got so super paranoid in the lead-up to it. I would panic because I couldn't remember what I was told and what I wasn't allowed to say. I knew the big reveal would happen in July and they wanted it to be an amazing moment for me.

"So I was lying to everyone left, right and centre. My husband was the only one who knew. But I became so paranoid. I became a massive narcissist thinking everyone was talking about you. I would even whisper in my flat because I was worried someone would hear me. I was so melodramatic!" she says.

"Doctor Who" series 11, starring Jodie, is expected to launch in late 2018.
