David Tennant has spoken to RadioTimes.com about his friend and former Doctor Who co-star Billie Piper ahead of her big night at BAFTA. Billie is nominated for Leading Actress and Drama series for her Sky One series I Hate Susie.
Talking about his respect and admiration for Billie, David said he was impressed by her for finding “a place for herself in the creative community where all her multiple skills can be utilised" He went on to praise both the series I Hate Suzie which she co-created and starred in and also her latest feature film Rare Beasts, which she directed, wrote, and stars in. "Billie's always been hugely creative and brilliant and it was so exciting to see her doing a massive central performance as well as co-creating and producing. Someone who I knew to be so extraordinary being allowed to do that on telly, unfettered and uncensored. It was a joy to behold, and now she's got a feature film.”
He added: “To see someone you know and love have that moment is extraordinary.”
You can see if Billie picks up the awards when the BAFTAs air on Sunday night on BBC One from 7pm.
