Here’s a transcript of a very short BBC News interview with Matt Smith, conducted in Cannes while he was promoting a short film, ‘Together’.
Q: So, your first time in Cannes. How are you finding it?
A: Rock and roll. I love how decadent it is, everyone’s in shades.
Q: Are you ready for the fame that will come with ‘Doctor Who’?
A: I don’t know what to expect. At the moment I can pass by unnoticed, really.
Q: Do you dread it, or will you just take it in your stride?
A: I’ll just take it in my stride. What else can you do but enjoy it? It’s a happy thing, it’s a wonderful part, a wonderful thing and people are very enthusiastic about it. My lips are sealed, I can’t say very much about it.
Q: Do you want to make more films?
A: Hopefully one day. I’d like to make a short first, and then – yeah, hopefully, why not? Aim high, come back, have a film. That’d be great. That’s where my interest in film’s going to take me.
