David Tennant wants to work alongside wife again as experience was delightful

David Tennant scooped the best Drama Performance award at this year’s National Television Awards 2021 on Thursday.

Those nominated for the award at this year's bash were David Tennant as Dennis Nilsen in Des, Vicky McClure as DI Kate Fleming in Line of Duty and Olly Alexander as Ritchie Tozer in It’s A Sin.

When talking about his win and the success of his character, David also touched upon the future release of a series where he works on set with his wife Georgia.

The new series follows the couple starring in a modern-day adaptation of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

The Daily Star spoke exclusively to David Tennant to find out what he thought of working with his wife again – after filming Staged, which featured David and Michael Sheen playing fictionalised versions of themselves, and starred both their partners.

When asked what it was like working with his wife on upcoming projects, he revealed that he loved doing so and welcomes more in the future.

David said: "Well we've been spending the last year working with our significant others and I've had a delightful experience so I'd take more of that quite happily."

Though working with your partner can cause tensions to arise, but David elaborated on whether they took any drama home from the office with them.

He added: "During Staged, we were at home already – there was nowhere to go."

Actor pal Michael Sheen then added: "We were constantly taking work home, we couldn't get away from it.

"It was a nice journey to work every morning from the living room to the kitchen."

David then jokingly added: "Yeah the coffee was good. It's just the child care issue mostly."

But it was David's performance as Dennis Nilsen in Des that got him the accolade on the evening.

During the series, fans saw the former Doctor Who star transform into a serial killer for the ITV drama.

When talking about his role in Dennis, David also revealed that it wasn't the nicest role to play and left him feeling incredibly isolated.

The actor said: "It wasn't the 'jobbiest' job, to be honest, it was a little bit solitary.

"He was an odd human being – it didn't feel right to be having a laugh so I took myself off and sat in corners a lot of the time I thought it was the only way to try to get inside the of someone that damaged."

The 50-year-old also explained that his dream role would be to play a bad guy in the new Line of Duty season, which is still up in the air whether it will be going ahead or not.
