Inspired by the TV series ‘Dr Who’ David Tennant wanted to become an actor from a very young age. Born in Bathgate, West Lothian, Tennant attended Saturday acting classes before being accepted into the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. Tennant quickly won leading roles in a variety of TV productions, and joined the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1996. Tennant is now a very well respected classical stage actor. He is also critically acclaimed as a TV actor. His most famous TV role came in 2005 when he realised his childhood dream to play the Dr in ‘Dr Who’. In 2007 Tennant was applauded for his portrayal of Hamlet in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of the play. This rather humble photograph shows Tennant looking straight at the viewer with his captivating brown eyes.
