[edit]

TWENTY-YEAR-OLD Wendy Padbury, who as Dr. Who girl Zoe provides the glamour aboard the Tardis, was born in a highly suitable place for a budding actress—Stratford-upon-Avon. As a little girl, she used to stand at the back of the theatre and watch the plays— 'It was this that gave me the acting bug,' she says. She then enrolled at a well-known stage school, where she studied singing, acting, and dancing, and it was the dancing bit that launched her showbusiness career.

She's appeared in many TV programmes, several West-End shows, and her latest film Charlie Bubbles, with Albert Finney, is due for release shortly. In her time off, Wendy has an interest in an antique shop, and she also plays tennis, and makes some of her own clothes.

And how does she feel about Dr. Who? 'It's very scary and exciting. but I'm loving it!'

Today's Dr. Who episode is at 5.15 on BBC-1
