Deep Roy is rumoured to be playing a role in the second episode of Doctor Who‘s new season.
The Kenyan actor, stuntman, puppeteer and comedian was apparently spotted on location filming with the Doctor Who cast this week in Valencia, Spain.
Reports on Twitter suggest that he is playing a robot in the episode, which is written by Frank Cottrell-Boyce (‘In the Forest of the Night’) and also guest stars Mina Anwar (The Sarah Jane Adventures) and Ralf Little (The Royle Family).
He has also been in episodes of The X-Files, Blake’s 7 and Eastbound & Down, and played the Oompa-Loompas in Tim Burton’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie in 2005.
Deep Roy has been in Doctor Who before, playing Mr Sin in Tom Baker’s 1977 serial ‘The Talons of Weng-Chiang’.
Season 10 will air on BBC One in spring 2017.
