Yasmin Finney is set to star as a new version of Rose Tyler in Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary series next year. The beloved character was originally played by Billie Piper when the series was revived in 2005. “This show has a place in so many people’s hearts, so to be seen as a trans actress by the legend himself, Russell [T Davies], has not only made my year, it’s made my life,” Finney told the BBC about her casting. “I cannot wait to begin this journey and for you all to see how Rose blossoms.

Get ready.” She added that if “eight-year-old Yasmin” could see where she is now, “I would have never in a million years believed them”.

The actress is currently starring in the Netflix series Heartstopper as Elle, Charlie (Joe Locke) and Tao’s (William Gao) friend who transferred to Harvey Greene Grammar School for Girls after coming out as transgender.
