Jodie Whittaker Admits She Broke Down In Tears Over ‘Doctor Who’ News: ‘I Just Started Crying’

Jodie Whittaker opens up about becoming the first female “Doctor Who” as she appears on “The Graham Norton Show” Friday.

The 36-year-old gets asked about the moment she first found out about her new role, to which she replies: “I went to what I thought was just a final audition and a chat with all the grownups.

“I was being all steely and when they told me the part was mine, I just started crying. They started telling me lots of important things about the role and all I could think was, ‘I really want to WhatsApp someone.'”

Whittaker adds: “I felt joy, fear and responsibility to the fans.”
