David Tennant Net Worth $7 million

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”. They have four children, one of whom is a child from Moffett’s previous relationship. He doesn’t like to talk about his personal life a lot, but mentioned that he occasionally goes to church.

Quotes

#Quote
1Relationships are hard enough with the people you're having them with, let alone talking about them in public.
2[Asked to explain his acting process.He bursts out laughing, with his insistence that he doesn't have one underscored by the T-shirt he happens to be wearing that proclaims, "Anybody Can Do What I Do." But then, playing the good sport, he gives it a shot] It's a bit like wearing in a pair of shoes. You put them on your feet, and at first they squeak and hurt and you can't really walk. But you LIKE these shoes, so you work away at it until the shoes feel comfortable.
3(While making Learners (2007), he commented on his own driving) I do have more speeding points than are entirely practical - but that's only because I'm up and down on the M4 to Cardiff a lot. They have draconian speeding fines. There'll have been some work going on three weeks previously, so there's one sign saying 'You should be going at 50 miles an hour here' and then 18 cameras to make sure that when inevitably you don't, with nobody else on the road at 3am, they can charge you hundreds and hundreds of pounds for the privilege. Listen, I've just got far too many speeding points. What can I do to defend myself? It's my fault.
4I remember, after seeing Jon Pertwee turn into Tom Baker in Doctor Who (1963), having a conversation with my parents at a very young age about actors and what they did. I remember getting the distinction between a character and an actor, as they explained it. I understood what fiction was very clearly - and I always feel uneasy when people talk about children not understanding the difference between fantasy and reality. I can only have been three, and was just enthralled by Doctor Who (1963). But I was quite clear that I didn't want to be a Time Lord - I wanted to be the person who played a Time Lord.
5(On being asked to star in Doctor Who (2005) It was funny, when I first got asked I just laughed! I found it hilarious and impossible! And I remember Russell, very perceptively, saying "Don't say anything now, because I know the experience is quite a weird one."
6There is something about the type of imagination that powers Doctor Who (2005). That sweeps up viewers and inspires them in unexpected ways. Something about it's mix of the fantastic and the mundane, the far flung with the domestic that is unlike anything else.
7(On being cast in Casanova (2005)) They wanted him to be a cheeky chappie - that's why his love rival is Rupert Penry-Jones, who's 6ft 2in. It was all about the wit and the words
8(On kissing John Barrowman at Comic-Con 2009): The moment was right and I felt it was appropriate at the time. It's something you know you'll get a headline back home for.
9(On being voted Sexiest Actor): Well, I'm not sure what to say about being called the sexiset actor of the year. I'm very flattered and somewhat bewildered. All I know is that I voted for John Barrowman. However I am unashamedly delighted that Doctor Who (2005) has been voted favourite show.
10(On his final scene in Doctor Who (2005) I never saw my final line coming, but it's absolutely perfect. That's when Russell is at his finest. Those are his masterstrokes.
11(On almost being swayed to stay in Doctor Who (2005)) I had a meeting with Steven Moffat and in a way that's been the most difficult bit because I'm such a big fan of his. He told me some of his ideas for what's coming up in the show and it's going to be so good. When I finally thought I'd made a decision suddenly I was tempted to change my mind again.
12(On growing up as a teengager) That's the nature of being a teenager. It felt awkward and ugly and different. I felt uncool to the depths of my soul and I've never really recovered from that - I still think I'm uncool.
13(At the 2006 National Television Awards) I think if my eight-year-old self could see me at the Royal Albert Hall winning a prize for playing the Doctor on telly, he would need a stiff shot of Irn-Bru.
14(on his decision to leave Doctor Who (2005)): If I don't take a deep breath now and move on, I never will. I think it's best I don't outstay my welcome.
15(On The Doctor and Rose) They weren't shagging in the TARDIS, because that would be weird.
16(On groupie brigades) Billie and I got chased through the traffic once in a car. You expect paparazzi to do that, but when it's normal people you start to think the world's gone a bit mad.
17(When asked "If you could be any Doctor, who would you choose to be?", Comic-Con 2009) Splendid chaps, all of them. I think that's the traditional answer to that question.
18You know, I've just about got used to the fact that people in Britain know who I am on some level, but the notion that there's any kind of international recognition is still slightly bizarre to me.
19I've been quite lucky in that I've managed to tick off a few of my dream roles, really. Beyond that, you wait for the next script to come in that will have the dream role that you don't know exists yet, I suppose.
20If you can sell that you're the King of Scotland, or Henry V on a tiny stage in a studio theatre somewhere, then you can probably sell that you're a starship captain or a time traveler.
21It's always that tricky thing with a remake, especially when it's something that's well loved. You're coming to something that has a built-in fascination, but with that comes people ready to feel disgruntled that it's being remade at all.
22The Doctor is the kind of character - because the guest cast is changing all the time, there are very few constants in the show, so the 'Doctor'- when you're there, you're in it a lot. You're speaking a lot.
23To me, it feels like The Doctor has to have a long coat, and that's something imprinted on me from childhood, because he always did. And there's something heroic in a flapping coat, but at the same time, I need to get rid of it sometimes and just be a scrawny guy in a suit that doesn't quite fit.
24When you first read a script is the purest moment. That's when you can understand how an audience will ultimately receive it. The first reading of the script is so important because you're experiencing it all for the first time, and it's then that you really know if it's going to work or not.
25When you're older, you want to be scared because you understand more where the boundaries between fantasy and reality are, and I suppose they are more blurred the younger you are.
26When you're playing a real person, there's a balance between playing the person in the script and playing the person as he was in life. You have to be respectful and true to who that person was, but at the same time tell the story in the film.
27Paula Milne was really the first thing that drew me to The Politician's Husband (2013).
28The bad guys probably get the better lines, don't they? And they wear less spandex. That would be quite good.
29The gritty indie films are a lot rarer than the films that aspire to fill multiplexes.
30Twitter! It's like being stalked by committee!
31Animation is a fascinating area from an acting point of view because it's not really like anything else because you are only providing a portion of the performance. That's very inspiring and it forces you to do things in a different way - to tell stories through your voice.
32I don't think I have ever done anything for this age of children before, a pre-school audience. Generally speaking, we don't have vivid memories of that age and what influenced us, yet clearly they are hugely formative years and it's really important that we can create television of a high quality for that audience.
33I have such fond memories of watching Doctor Who (1963) when I was a kid and growing up, that if I've left anybody anywhere with memories as fond, then I feel like I've done my job.
34I remember a conversation with my parents about who the people on the TV were, and learning they were actors and they acted out this story and just thinking that was the most fantastic notion, and that's what I want to do.
35I was hugely formed by stories I was told as a child whether that was in a book, the cinema, theatre or television and probably television more than any medium is what influenced me as a child and formed my response to literature, story-telling and, therefore, the world around me.
36I'd love to work with Aaron Sorkin on something. Just the way he writes, he has no fear in writing people that are fiercely intelligent, and I love that.
37I love a bit of political drama; 'The West Wing' is probably my favourite television series of all time.
38I love characters who are clever and smart, and you have to run to catch up with. I think there's something very appealing and rather heroic in that.
39I'm a good person, I hope. But I'm never as good as I want to be, never as nice as I want to be, never as generous as I want to be.
40I'm as happy doing 'Postman Pat' as I am doing 'Hamlet.'
41I've always been a geek and slightly awkward... slightly umm... I was never the cool kid at school.
42I was sent good luck cards from Tom Baker and Peter Davison. They were the Doctors I grew up watching, while eating toast and drinking Tizer at home, so I was very honoured.
43Unlike other enduring characters such as Sherlock Holmes or Tarzan, being the Doctor allows you a certain freedom that is both very demanding and very thrilling. It allows you to make the character using elements of yourself.
44I do thrive on hard work.
45On his early decision to become an actor: "I was very small, about 3 or 4 I think, and just wanted to be the people on telly telling these wonderful stories. Obviously the idea grew and matured with me but I can't ever remember wanting to do anything else. I've just sort of taken it for granted all my life that that was what I would do."
46Drama school is a pretty intense experience and I think it changes who you are. I think I grew up at drama school (which was fairly useful personally as much as professionally) and I certainly got exposed to a huge range of ideas, techniques, and practices that I had no previous experience of. I wouldn't have known what I was doing as an actor if I hadn't gone.
