Watching “Doctor Who” at a young age, David was inspired to pursue a career in acting, despite his parents disapproval. He attended Ralston Primary and Paisley Grammar School, acting in school productions at both of them. He was noticed by actress Edith MacArthur, who told David’s parents that he had potential to become a great stage actor. Tennant then attended the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, being one of the youngest students of the school. He then took his stage name from Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys and would legally change his name later on.

One of his first major projects was done at the age of 16, when he appeared in an anti-smoking film made by the Glasgow Health Board. He made a guest appearance in an episode of “Dramarama”, and then found his first project after graduating in “The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui”. While doing stage productions, he had his first major television role too, in “Takin’ Over the Asylum”, in which he befriended Arabella Weir. He then appeared in “Jude” and productions of “As You Like It”, “The Comedy of Errors” and “Romeo and Juliet”. His popularity in theatre was growing, and soon he was playing more television roles too, such as in “Randall and Hopkirk”, “Boots the Chemists” and “He Knew He Was Right”., plus more film roles, including “Bright Young Things” and “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”. His net worth was rising steadily.

In 2005 “Doctor Who” returned to television, and Tennant would become the tenth doctor, succeeding Christopher Eccleston. He had been offered the role while filming other projects, though the official cast had not been announced yet. He was very excited to fulfill his childhood dream, and a lot of critics believed him to have produced the best portrayal of the Doctor. His enthusiasm for the show continued, with him offering to be a part of various audio plays based on “Doctor Who”. He would then try directing work in a “Doctor Who Confidential” episode which aired in 2007. Subsequently he made appearances with other Doctors in various events, and would also do voice acting work for “Doctor Who” animated projects. His final episode as Doctor aired in 2010, when he was succeeded by Matt Smith. One of his latest projects involves many of the previous doctors for three new stories set for 2016.

Aside from “Doctor Who”, Tennant has had several other projects including the drama “Secret Smile”. He also played Sir Arthur Eddington in HBO’s “Einstein and Eddington”, and other projects he’s done include “United”, “The Escape Artist”, and in 2015 he portrayed the villain Kilgrave in the Marvel series “Jessica Jones”. He’s also working on “Fish Without Bicycles” while continuing with various stage productions.

For his personal life, it is known that David had a relationship with actress Sophia Myles for two years. In 2011, he married actress Georgia Moffett whom he met on the set of “Doctor Who”.
