David Tennant Cancels Monte-Carlo Festival Appearance

David Tennant has pulled out of his planned appearance at the 53rd Monte-Carlo Festival International de Télévision. David was scheduled to appear at the Festival along with his Broadchurch co-star Olivia Colman and the series creator Chris Chibnall. French site AlloCiné have today published an updated guest list that confirms his non-attendance; Chris and Olivia are still expected to be present. 

Broadchurch has been nominated for a Golden Nymph award in the Mini Series category, while David Tennant and Olivia Colman have been nominated as Best Actor and Actress respectively. The awards will be announced at the climax of the Festival which runs from the 9th -13th June and are presented to the best programmes and television actors from around the world, as decided by a panel of actors and television professionals.

No reason has been given for David's non-appearance but it is thought that it may be down to a scheduling clash - photography starts on his new feature film What We Did On Our Holiday in Scotland on June 17th.
