When actors work closely together for months, whether it be on a movie or TV show, strong bonds are formed.
Sometimes, these relationships can turn romantic.

And so she did. Moffett appeared in a season four episode, aptly called “The Doctor’s Daughter,” where she played the cloned daughter of Tennant’s Doctor, an alien who can travel through time and space. While they may not …read more
