Ashley Walters says he’s scared of even mentioning his role in Doctor Who after getting in trouble with the show’s producers on his first day.
The rapper-turned-actor has just finished filming with Doctor Who star Matt Smith in Cardiff on an episode of the hit BBC1 show which will screen next year.
Ashley revealed: “I’m sworn to secrecy – I don’t want to be killed by the Doctor Who police!
“I can’t tell you anything about Doctor Who. I wasn’t even allowed to tweet pictures or anything, I was really upset about that.
“I did tweet one picture in my trailer and I got in huge trouble with the producers on my first day so I’m not saying anything any more about it. But it was amazing working with Matt Smith for a few weeks.”
Meanwhile, Ashley, 30, is making a return to music with new single Your Love, featuring Alesha Dixon, coming out next month.
And he has also been working as a director on a new TV pilot, which he is currently pitching to channels, but also plans to release as a short film.
Ashley, who starred in BBC show Hustle in 2007, said: “It’s called The Charlatans. In a nutshell it’s a mixture between Entourage and Hustle. Everyone was sad with the loss of Hustle. I know I was, I used to love it.
“So we’ve done a similar concept, but with a group of kids who go out and do a different con every episode, it’s a really nice piece, really funny comedy, drama. It’s good.”
