How old is David Tennant and who is his wife Georgia? – The Sun

DAVID Tennant has established himself as a star of both UK screen and stage.

He became a household name after he took on the iconic role of Doctor Who way back in 2005 and has starred in countless TV hits since.

How old is David Tennant?

He was born David John McDonald in Bathgate, West Lothian, Scotland, on April 18, 1971.

He is the son of Alexander McDonalds, a minister, and Helen McLeod, and has a brother and a sister.

He was educated at Ralston Primary and Paisley Grammar School.

Who is David Tennant's wife Georgia?

David is married to actress Georgia Moffett, 36.

The pair met on the set of Doctor Who episode The Doctor’s Daughter.

David Tennant told Jonathan Ross he presented the ring as a hilarious Christmas present.

They have five children, including Georgia’s son Ty from a previous relationship.

What is his net worth?

David Tennant is estimated to have a net worth of £7 million.

His wealth is unsurprising, considering he is one of Scotland's best-known stars.

The talented actor has starred in box-office hits such as Harry Potter.

How did David get into acting?

From the age of three he wanted to become an actor due to his love of Doctor Who, which he would watch religiously.

He acted in school productions and he was spotted at a young age by Scottish actress Edith MacArthur, who is best known for her role as Lady Laird Elizabeth Cunningham in Scottish soap opera Take the High Road.

David attended weekend classes at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama before passing an audition for the school at the age of 16. He studied there full-time until he was 20.

There was already a David McDonald on the books, so David started going by Tennant after reading about Pet Shop Boys frontman Neil Tennant in a copy of Smash Hits. He later had to change his name legally to meet Screen Actors Guild rules.

How did David become a household name?

In July 2005, David became the Tenth Doctor, replacing Christopher Eccleston. His first full episode as Doctor Who was that year's Christmas special, The Christmas Invasion.

He played the role until January 1, 2010, when he bowed out to make way for Matt Smith.

He and Billie Piper, who starred as his assistant Rose throughout his tenure, returned for the 50th anniversary special in November 2013.

What other TV has David done?

Tennant reprised his role as father to a child with severe learning disabilities in the second series of BBC show There She Goes.

He has starred in ITV drama Broadchurch, and as villain Kilgrave in the Marvel and Netflix series Jessica Jones, and as Dennis Nilesn in the drama Des.

What films has David made?

Just before landing the role of Doctor Who, David became well known to Harry Potter fans when he was cast as Barty Crouch Jnr in The Goblet of Fire.

In 2009, he starred as Sir Piers Pomfrey in St Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold and the following year voiced the character of Spitelout in How to Train Your Dragon.

David starred as vampire expert Peter Vincent in the Fright Night remake and in 2014, he starred alongside Rosamund Pike and Billy Connolly in What We Did on Our Holiday.

Tennant also starred in the 2017 film You, Me and Him, which was co-produced by his wife Georgia Moffett.
