British Doctor Who star Matt Smith is heading to Hollywood to pursue a movie career.
The 28 year old currently plays the title role in cult U.K. sci-fi TV show, but he has been rumoured to be on the verge of quitting the series.
Smith has now fuelled speculation TV chiefs will soon be looking for another Time Lord by confirming he has set up meetings with movie bosses in Los Angeles in order to chase film roles.
He tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "I’m going over to Los Angeles this week to dip my head in the pond. I am going to be having loads of meetings with film people and that sort of stuff. I have a lot of ambitions. I would like one day to direct and I just want to keep doing quality work. L.A. is kinda groovy - I really like it out there... Would I get a big part, who knows? Sadly, that is not up to me. That all depends on people in the American film industry and whether they want to put me there."
