It gives me great pleasure to welcome the formidable Neil Patrick Harris to our studio… But who, why, and what is he up to? “All you can do is wait,” Davies said in a statement. “But I promise you, the stuff we’re shooting right now is insane.” “Doctor, be careful!”
The Rwandan-Scottish actor was nominated for Best Male Comedy Performance for his performance as Eric in Netflix’s coming-of-age dramedy Sex Education. Gatwa’s first major TV endeavour as the eponymous lead will be the upcoming Doctor Who Season 14 series. He will also appear in Greta Gerwig’s live-action Barbie film.
