ALLONZ-Y! Sex education star Ncuti Gatwa is stepping into the role of the next Doctor Who. The actor was officially cast in the lead role in the British science fiction series, Doctor who. Gatwa confirmed the exciting news on her Instagram account.

“There just aren’t the words to describe how I feel. A mix of deeply honored, excited and of course a little scared, ”said the 29-year-old Rwandan-Scottish actor.

He continued: “This role and show mean so much to so many around the world, including myself, and each of my incredibly talented predecessors handled that unique responsibility and privilege with the utmost care. I’ll do my best to do the same ”.

The show, which first aired in 1963, welcomed many prominent actors. Since the concept of regeneration was introduced, various actors have indeed brought the character to life.

Prior to Gatwa’s appointment, actors Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, Matt Smith, Peter Capaldi and Jodie Whittaker were adored for their portrayal of the beloved character.

In fact, the franchise hit its first casting milestone with Whittaker, who was the first female Doctor Who.
