Matt Smith reveals he "struggles to sleep while he is shooting Doctor Who"
British actor Matt Smith struggles to sleep while he is shooting cult TV show Doctor Who as he insists on learning his lines late into the night which can cause issues with sleeping.
The star has played the Time Lord since 2010 and is currently working on his third series of the sci-fi drama, but Smith admits he finds his gruelling schedule hard to deal with.
He tells Britain's Empire magazine in their newest issue, "Just carrying the energy I need to carry through the week does feed into your weekend somehow. I'm not great at resting and I'm not great at sleeping.
"It's infuriating. I think because I learn lines 'til late at night my brain's still ticking. I lie in bed and think, 'Oh b**locks, I can't sleep.'"
