'Doctor Who' May Invite Sophie Okonedo


Sophie Okonedo


The actress in 'The Secret Life of Bees' is believed to crank up the sci-fi series' reputation which was refuted when Kylie Minogue was brought in.

Actress Sophie Okonedo is set to make a cameo in the new series of "Doctor Who", according to reports. The "Hotel Rwanda" star is said to have already filmed her scenes as mysterious character Liz Ten for the cult U.K. sci-fi series, which sees a new Time Lord, Matt Smith, take over from David Tennant later this year.

A source tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "Getting Sophie on board is a huge coup for the BBC. The forthcoming series has been criticized for being a bit light on the big names. But the feeling is less is more. Some fans thought the Kylie Minogue Christmas episode was a bit naff (poor)."

The casting news comes just a day after it was rumored that "Love Actually" star Bill Nighy would be making a cameo appearance in an upcoming episode of the long running show.
