Actor Profile: David Tennant

Personal Life
Tennant was born on April 18, 1971 in some area of Scotland. Actually, he was born David McDonald, but decided to choose “Tennant” instead (Brandon as a surname was his first choice. Just a small nugget of information.) Since the age of 3, he decided he wanted to be an actor. A natural thespian, Tennant performs on both the stage and the big (and smaller) screen, as he is an accomplished television star and an up-and-coming big screen actor. These skills were acquired when he studied at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. He is unmarried, but is currently dating Georgia Moffett (who played Tennant’s character’s daughter in Doctor Who. Kinda creepy...). Tennant also has two siblings, a brother, Blair, and a sister, Karen. 

Filmography (super-abridged)
2005- Doctor Who- TV Series (The Doctor- 10th reincarnation)
2005- Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Barty Crouch, Jr.)
2009- Hamlet- TV Movie (Hamlet)
2010- How to Train Your Dragon (Spitelout)
2011- Fright Night (Peter Vincent)
2012- Batman 3: Untitled (The Riddler... more on this...later...)

The Doctor. And the Sonic. 
Critical Reception
Tennant’s work receives positive praise from critical circles. His performance as the 10th  Doctor from the hit British TV Show, Doctor Who, made his Doctor one of the most well-loved out of all the Doctors. His acting in the TV Movie, Hamlet, also garnered critical praise. 
Future Projects
Post-Doctor Who, Tennant is doing most of his acting on the stage; however, that has not stopped him from using his Doctor prowess to get him recognized on the Big Screen. He is currently acting in the upcoming, remake of Fright Night, where he plays Roddy McDowell’s Peter Vincent. Also, you may have noticed something in 2012... hmmmmm.... Tennant has expressed interest in the role (along with EVERYONE ELSE IN HOLLYWOOD), but no formal cast list has been released. More or less wishful thinking. Actually, stay tuned on this. There may or may not be an upcoming movie look at Batman 3... (hint: there will be). With or without The Riddler (a performance that would catapult his career further than Doctor Who could have), Tennant should have a prosperous and bright future, whether it be on the stage or on the screen (big or small). But still, he should play The Riddler. 

Note: Yes, the Actor Profiles are back. However,
they will not be back with the furious force they once had.
One or two, here and there. 
But that's it.
Thank you!
