So He’s Danny Horn!

Unknown actor Danny Horn has finally been speaking about his up and coming role in the Doctor Who Christmas Special.

The 21 year-old from Ilkley, who had just finished drama school before being cast in the show has confirmed that he’ll be playing a younger version of Kazran, the character played by Sir Michael Gambon.

Doctor Who guest actor Danny HornUnsurprisingly Horn was full of praise for The Singing Detective and Harry Potter star.

“Working with Michael was fantastic as he’s one of my heroes, and Matt is brilliant to work with – absolutely fantastic.”

In the episode, based loosely on Charles Dickens’ immortal A Christmas Carol, Danny’s character spends most of his time with Opera Warbler Katherine Jenkins’ character, who, like Danny, is making her dramatic debut in the special, he said:

“It was a bit of an alien world to both of us, if you’ll pardon the pun

We were together for a lot of the episode – let’s just say I might be a bit of a hero with the boys.”

The actor, who has an upcomming role in MI:High is hoping the special can springboard him into bigger and better things.

“So far it’s going well. I’ve got a couple of really exciting opportunities ahead.

I’m down to the final two for the lead in a big film.”
