Karen Gillan and Matt Smith at Hugo’s Restaurant in Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon.
Can you guys tell us some embarrassing Arthur Darvill stories?
Matt: Arthur - there was a time in New York, I’m not going to tell you the real story here. It’s a bit of a story, the real story - it’s perhaps not for this environment. We were really late, weren’t we, for a press thing?
Karen: Oh, yeah.
Matt: And sometimes Arthur would get [imitating Arthur] quite sort of hit up, and he would be like, “GUYS, WHERE ARE YOU? WHERE ARE YOU? WHY DO I ALWAYS HAVE TO BE DAD?”
Karen: Yeah, like he screamed it, like really seriously.
Matt: And I’d just fallen in the bath, fully clothed.
[Karen laughs hysterically]
Matt: It’s true. We’ll leave it at that, but…
[Karen continues to laugh hysterically].
Karen: I can’t believe that you fell in the bath…
Matt: Yeah, yeah…
Karen: I’m crying with laughter. You fell in the bathtub!
Matt: I know. She was there! And I was just like [stands up and falls back into chair].
Karen: I was like, “Are you okay?”
Matt: And we were just about to leave the room, and you were just, you were just…
Karen: I mean…
Matt: …on the floor, laughing at me. And then Arthur was outside getting cross cause I was soaking wet, fully clothed in the bath.
Karen: I mean really angry.
