Matthew Robert Smith, an English actor, was born on October 28, 1982. He is best known for his roles as the eleventh Doctor in BBC’s Doctor Who (2010-2013), Daemon Targaryen in HBO’s House of the Dragon (2022-present), and Prince Philip in Netflix’s The Crown (2016-2017), for which he received a Primetime Emmy nomination.
Matt Smith: Childhood
Matthew Robert Smith, the son of Lynne and David Smith, was born on October 28, 1982, in Northampton, Northamptonshire. Laura Jayne, his older sister, is one of the dancers in the well-known music video for Eric Prydz’s song “Call on Me” from 2004. Smith attended the Northampton School for Boys.
Smith had aspirations to play football like his grandfather, a former Notts County player, and had previously played for the youth squads of Northampton Town, Nottingham Forest, and Leicester City, where he eventually attained the position of captain. He was unable to continue playing football due to spondylolysis brought on by a severe back injury.
Matt Smith’s Career in Television
Matt Smith’s first significant television role was as Jim Taylor in the BBC adaptations of Sally Lockhart’s The Ruby in the Smoke and The Shadow in the North. He showed up for the Will McKenzie audition for The Inbetweeners, but Simon Bird ended up getting the part. We knew we had our man when we first saw Smith portray the Time Lord, Doctor Who writer Iain Morris said.
The first time Matt Smith was mentioned as a potential successor to David Tennant as the Eleventh Doctor was in January 2009. Because of his obscurity, the news article “Doctor Who?” made fun of the title of the television show.
Others praised his acting abilities, while some viewers felt he was too young and inexperienced for the role. In 2010, Orbital and the actor Matt Smith both appeared at the Glastonbury Festival.
He presided over the Doctor Who Prom at the Royal Albert Hall in July 2010. On May 26, 2012, he carried the Olympic torch in Cardiff, which resembled a scene from a television show. When the 2013 Christmas special ended, he announced that he would be leaving Doctor Who.
Matt Smith’s Past Relationships
Smith and Mayana Moura, a Brazilian singer, and actress had romantic ties in 2008 and 2009. In addition, he had sporadic relationships with model Daisy Lowe from 2010 to 2014. From 2014 to 2019, he was dating Lily James, an actress.
Smith is an atheist and a devoted Blackburn Rovers fan. He has referred to Oasis as “the greatest rock and roll band in the world” and named Radiohead as an influence. In 2015, he was named one of GQ’s 50 Best-Dressed British Men.
Who Has Dated Matt Smith?
In contrast to Smith and Brady’s alleged relationship, some of his previous relationships have been fairly open. His most famous relationship was with actress Lily James, who had just completed portraying Pamela Anderson on the Hulu series Pam & Tommy. She co-starred alongside Smith and Brady in the film Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which is rather amusing.
According to Us Weekly, Smith and James began dating in 2014 and ended the relationship in 2019. In 2020, they briefly reconnected. They frequently posed together on the red carpet and were photographed together. Before James, Smith dated models Mayana Moura and Daisy Lowe.
Fans may be curious about Smith’s dating life despite the fact that he appears to be a relatively private individual and is not active on social media. Observe him as Daemon Targaryen by watching new episodes of House of the Dragon on HBO every Sunday evening.
Who Precisely is This Caroline Brady?
In the NBC soap opera Days of Our Lives, which is a popular serial drama about working-class life in the made-up American town of Salem, there is a fictitious character by the name of Caroline Brady. Since her first appearance, the series has given viewers multiple opportunities to see the matriarch of the Brady family. On February 7, 1983, Peggy McCay took on the role of the protagonist in the novel written by Margaret DePriest.
In 1984, Jody Carter held the position for a short period of time before it was filled by Barbara Beckley, who held it from 1984 until 1985. McCay kept playing the role of Caroline from July 17, 1985, until December 5, 2003, when it was revealed that the character had been ostensibly killed by a serial killer.
In 2004, when it was determined that Caroline was still alive, McCay traveled there again. She continued to perform as Caroline for another 12 years before making her last appearance in that role in August 2016.
