Whoopi Goldberg wants to star on Doctor Who
Whoopi Goldberg would love a role on Doctor Who.
The Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award-winning star revealed to The Sun that she is a huge fan of the popular British science-fiction series and “always” hopes the BBC would invite her onto the show.
Talking about her love for British television, she said: “You have a different quality now on television. The way you guys have always done shows has always been the smartest and we’ve finally just figured it out.
“I like the idea of doing things the way y’all do them, you do some really fun stuff like Black Mirror or, you know, I’m still dying to do Doctor Who.
“Ab Fab women, they are spectacularly funny women, so you know I have all these dreams.”
Talking about her specific desire to do Doctor Who, she added: “I always hope when I come to England the BBC will say, ‘Hey we want you to do something.’ I would love that.”
Goldberg is one of only four entertainers to have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award, and the only black woman to have done so.
In 1990, she received the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance as an eccentric psychic in Ghost. Her portrayal also earned her a Golden Globe Award and a BAFTA.
She won a Tony Award in 2002 for producing Broadway musical Thoroughly Modern Millie and a Grammy for Best Comedy Recording in 1985 for ‘Whoopi Goldberg: Direct from Broadway’.
In television, she has been nominated for eight Daytime Emmy Awards (winning two) and nine Primetime Emmy Awards.
