Eleventh Doctor in British TV Series "Doctor Who"
Matt Smith was born and raised in Northampton, Northamptonshire. He attended Northampton School for Boys where he had dreams of being a professional football player. But a serious back injury ruined any chance at that career. That's when his drama teacher introduced him to acting by signing him up as the tenth juror in an adaptation of Twelve Angry Men without his consent. His drama teacher continued to push Smith into acting and eventually persuaded him to join the National Youth Theatre in London.
Smith's first television role was as Jim Taylor in the BBC adaptations of the Sally Lockhart quartet books "The Ruby in the Smoke" and "The Shadow in the North." His first major television role came in the television series "Party Animals" as Danny Foster, a BBC television drama series about fictional parliamentary advisors and researchers in Westminster. Smith was revealed as the Eleventh Doctor in the British science-fiction television series Doctor Who in January 2009.
On June 1 2013, the BBC announced that Smith would be leaving Doctor Who at the end of the 2013 Christmas special. In May 2014, it was announced he had been cast for a role in Terminator: Genesis.
