Some of his roles include one as Danny Foster in British Drama, Party Animals, as Ian Hanley in The Street, as Dan Twentyman in Moses Jones, just to name a few.
However what really propelled Matt to unimaginable heights is his role of the 11th incarnation of Doctor in the legendary BBC' series, Doctor Who. That's right. The show that starred some of the biggest stars ever like Peter Capaldi, David Tennant, Christopher Eccleston, Tom Baker, Karen Gillian, Billie Piper. Appearing in 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th series, the 2013 specials as well as the spin-off of the show named, The Sarah Jane Adventures, Matt Smith gained international prominence in a really short amount of time.

No two ways about it. When he was cast, Smith was literally the youngest Doctor to ever star in the series and he had a big shoe to fill since the audience really admired and was used to David Tennant's portrayal of the Doctor. Nevertheless, according to fans, he nailed the role and filled his shelf with two SFX Awards and a Scream Award.
