Jenna for Flaunt Magazine

FLAUNT MAGAZINE“Jenna is laugh-out-loud funny, incredibly quick-witted and brings a truth and depth to everything she does. She blew everyone away at her first audition. Steven wanted to chase down the corridor and offer her the role on the spot. Our casting director Andy Pryor had to hold him back! Jenna has grown the character enormously throughout her time playing Clara. She travels in Time and Space and saves the universe. They don’t do much of that on Downton Abbey.” – Executive Producer Brian Minchin, Doctor Who (2015)

British telly star Jenna Coleman is a delightful CALIFUK recipe for melodrama. Coming up with work as investigative journalist Jasmine Thomas (2005-2009) on Emmerdale, a longstanding British soap set in a fictional village in the Yorkshire Dales, she survived a summer getaway with her uncle and quickly began a lesbian relationship with her friend. In 2011, the adorably dimpled actress took a real-life getaway, crossing the pond for her feature film debut in Captain America: The First Avenger. Then things took a dramatic turn for the best. The bewitching Coleman was cast on BBC series Doctor Who as Clara, companion of the 11th and 12th incarnation of the Doctor. So is Coleman ready to break into Hollywood? Examining her life in granular detail, things get murky; without being rude, she may be dating dangerously debonair Prince Harry (oh my!). And if Coleman can navigate the royal dating scene, she certainly has the charm and power for Hollywood. But then the question becomes—is the starlet willing to bend time and space in order to tackle steady work with American productions? Next year, she’ll costar in Me Before You, a film directed by Thea Sharrock, the acclaimed theater director of Broadway’s Equus. From there, it’s all in the stars. (source)

Jenna for 1883 Magazine

1883 MAGAZINE – Jenna Coleman is the actress of the moment – in demand, in the papers and about to burst back onto our screens in a brand new series of Doctor Who.

Treading the boards since she was 19, she bagged her first TV role before even auditioning for drama school, and hasn’t looked back since with leading roles in Emmerdale and Doctor Who, plus a Hollywood superhero film to boot.

With a brand new TV project playing the 18-year-old Queen Victoria about to go into production, I grabbed her during a rare break from work to chat about new skills, Matt Smith’s funny walk and why if Jenna has her way HRH Queen Victoria may well be a paragliding monarch…

Doctor Who is a bit of a British institution isn’t it? Has playing Clara totally changed your life?
Yes, in ways you wouldn’t expect. My personal life has changed, but it’s what you end up doing on a day-to-day basis that’s really different. The imaginative nature of the storytelling becomes your reality – green screens, running away from monsters and being put on wires and hung upside down. I’ve kind of entered an alternative universe, every time I come back to London I’m hit by reality!

So how did you get started as an actress?
I did loads of plays at school, and started to dance when I was really young – but I gave that up when I was about 16 as I realised I wanted to act. I was involved with a theatre company, and we used to travel up to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and put on loads of plays and perform as much as we could.

Did you have a plan B?
When I was younger I thought I might like to be a casting director because I love to read and imagine who would be good playing each role. Plus I’d get to watch loads of films and theatre and use it as research. I think now as a plan B I’d like to do something that you can be commissioned to do – like a painter, photographer or writer. Something you can do in your own space and time. Although I don’t know if I can paint really – I’ve never really tried…

You’re not going to have time for a while, but you should try painting, you might discover you have a hidden talent.
Yeah – I should buy an easel and a brush and start off with stick people. I’ve just bought a camera and I’m going to do some courses for that.

Is it true you were snapped up for a TV role before you went to drama school?
I got offered a job as I was auditioning, so I never actually went. When I finished the job I re-applied at RADA and LAMDA but then I got other jobs. I thought if I went to drama school for three years there would be certain parts in my younger repertoire that I’d never get to play, so I decided to just role with it instead.

So does that mean you’ve escaped all the weird and wonderful drama school warm up routines and rituals?
Oh no, I did them all at auditions. I remember one where I had to be an octopus. And one where you had to do these lines, as if you were a tree, but then you had to play someone whose dog had just died. I guess they were exercises supposed to stop you being self-conscious and see how you apply your imagination.

Jenna and Peter for EW

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – For die-hard Doctor Who fans, it can seem like a very long wait for new episodes, especially for those without a time-traveling police box at their disposal. But with the ninth season premiering this Saturday, the Doctor is nearly in. We sat down with the show’s stars Peter Capaldi (going into his second season) and Jenna Coleman (going into her third — and last) to discuss their experience scampering around the universe for another year.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You are filming your second season together. How’s the working relationship now?
PETER CAPALDI:
Us personally? [Sighs and rolls eyes] I can barely stand to be here with her.
JENNA COLEMAN: I knew it!
CAPALDI: Jenna’s fabulous. I always like when we get back to the TARDIS and it’s just us. We have huge adventures where gigantic things have happened, but personally I’m always most pleased when we are doing our stuff in the TARDIS.

So at this point have you fiddled with all the various buttons and levers?
COLEMAN:
I have. Peter has a system and a method. I like to press things, and Peter looks very disapprovingly at me.
CAPALDI: I’m like, “Get your hand off of that! That’s
 not what that one does!” I thought it was important 
 to have a logic to the switches, so I worked out a rough geography of what each one does. The thing about the TARDIS is that it has a telepathic and organic quality about it as well as a mechanical one.

Sure, like a Prius.
CAPALDI:
Exactly. So it has a relationship with each individual Doctor. So one can alter the purpose of a specific switch.

Would you ever ask Jenna, “How did the last guy do it?” Or is that like asking about an ex?
CAPALDI:
Pshaw! I’d never ask how to work the TARDIS. Ever. Never need to. When I first arrived, the props man very kindly showed me around the TARDIS and showed me how to operate it and I didn’t want to say, “You don’t have to show me any of this stuff, I know exactly how to drive this beast.”

What does season 9 look like for Clara and the Doctor?
COLEMAN:
They’ve become adrenaline junkies. Especially Clara. She doesn’t fear her own mortality in the same way anymore, so with that reckless abandon comes quite a lot of danger. Especially when you have two 
 similar minds without the person to say, “You guys…”
CAPALDI: I think they’re very bonded. The Doctor’s quite a tricky part to play because, if you go back to Chris Eccleston’s first episode, he says that he could see all that ever was and all that ever is and all that ever will be and that drove him mad. I took that to mean that he could see the future and the past, so he knows the fate of his companions, and that’s quite a difficult knowledge to have. So this season especially, he’s decided to enjoy what good times are available to him. You only live once, even if you’re 2,500 years old. So grab it and embrace it and hold it tight, because it’s dark outside.
COLEMAN: Scottish doom!
CAPALDI: She says I’m full of Scottish doom.
