Countdown To Doctor Who: Actors With Roles In Both ‘Doctor Who’ and ‘Star Wars’ [Infographic]
cGt2099   |  

Doctor Who Star Wars

Thanks to my DVD subscription to Netflix, I’ve had the splendid opportunity over the last couple of years (as other fans have no doubt) in being able to rediscover and revisit some episodes of Classic Doctor Who, some of which I’ve not seen in decades.

In the course of these nostalgia trips, I began noticing that there were quite a few actors who were popping up in many of the classic serials that had also played a role in some of the Star Wars films. On top of that, there has been some Star Wars actors show up in the new series as well.

About a year ago, I came across a few submissions at the Doctor Who Subreddit over at Reddit.com – notably this one and this other one – showing the crossover of Doctor Who actors who had also been in Harry Potter.

Consequently, in the lead-up to the premiere of Series 7, I decided to put together a bit of a timey-wimey infographic matrix thingy that looks at the crossover of actors between Doctor Who and Star Wars. Hope you like it, and feel free to let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    And Ian Liston, who had the role of Wes Janson in the Empire strikes back, was also “the Hero” in Doctor Who: The Armageddon Factor!

    You missed one, kinda. Marc Warren appeared in DW in Gods & Monsters and was a stand-in for Ewan MacGregor during some test shoots that George Lucas did for the Liam/Ewan/Jar-Jar underwater scenes (these shoots are available as extras on the PM DVDs.)

  • The Doctor

    HIS NAME IS NOT DR. WHO… ITS JUST THE DOCTOR

  • http://www.facebook.com/patrick.k.ofenloch Patrick Kevin Shawn Ofenloch

    Well this isn’t as far fetched as some would think considering the Doctor Who series is British and George Lucas probably liked using British actors b/c in general they are unknowns to Americans so perfect for American movie bit roles…Not to mention most of his work on the original Star Wars was done in London so it would make sense he would use extras from where he was filming.

    No Peter Cushing’s caracter’s name was Doctor Who and it was a non-canon appearance!!

  • Miguel Valdez Lopez

    This list is incomplete: David Tennant played the 10th Doctor in the DOCTOR WHO universe, as well as voiced Huyang, a droid in the service of the Jedi, in STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS.

  • Steven Taylor

    Technically most of those should be ‘Doctor Who’ actors who also appeared in ‘Star Wars’, not the other way around…
