THINGS I LEARNED AT BILLIE PIPER’S INTERVIEW AT GALLIFREY ONE 2014:
- She doesn’t like to watch her own stuff. She’ll catch an episode of Doctor Who if it’s on TV, which apparently is quite often in Britain if her kid seems interested, otherwise I think it makes her feel awkward.
- She hates her action figure, LOL. She says it looks nothing like her. She told a story about this wall of merchandise she has at home that she constantly has to tell her children to leave alone. One time, her young son found the action figure. She told him it was her. He just looked at it and was like, “…no it’s not.” The room cracked up at that one, too.
- She loves coming out to L.A. for these types of things, which is great because we like having her here.
- She considered leaving when Eccleston was leaving. She said it was like, “Well, if you aren’t gonna do it, I don’t want to do it, either!” She was convinced she’d do maybe 4 episodes of the next season and call it quits. Then she met David, who she adores, and decided, “Yeah, sorry Chris, I’m sticking around, bye.” The room cracked up at that, too. She said she felt like an unfaithful wife, lol.
