Actor David Tennant said it was strange marrying the daughter of an actor who played Doctor Who before his five-year run in the role.
"Because 'Doctor Who' ran like a stone through my life to marry the daughter of one of the doctors, it all felt a bit stupid," Tennant told the BBC's Gaby Roslin, according to The Independent. (A replay of the interview did not appear to be available as of Saturday. Roslin said a podcast episode with the conversation will be released on Monday.)
Tennant met his wife, actress Georgia Moffett, after she appeared on the show in 2008. The two married in 2011 and have five children. Moffett's father Peter Davison played in "Doctor Who" from 1981 to 1984.
Moffett told Roslin she went out of her way to court Tennant and said they wouldn't have dated if she hadn't been persistent, according to The Independent.
"I was very much the driving force," Moffett reportedly told Roslin. "If I hadn't worked so hard, it might not have happened."
Tennant said he was lucky enough to meet Moffett, according to The Scotsman.
"I definitely feel lucky," he said.
Tennant has appeared in a number of films and television shows since leaving Doctor Who. The actor's most recent show, "Des", premiered in September. Moffett has appeared in two Doctor Who spin-off series and was featured on Staged with Tennant this year.
Leslie Jones says she was "not very free" on Saturday Night Live and "not at all" missing the show.
