Matt Smith congratulated Emma D’Arcy on their Golden Globe nomination

In an interview with ES Magazine, D’Arcy revealed they weren’t even aware of their Golden Globe nomination. It was Matt Smith who informed them. They recalled, “I didn’t know, and it was Matt [Smith] who texted me congratulations. It was a really beautiful way to find out. He’s the perfect person to deliver news like that.”

“He’s just someone that I love, he’s like a dear friend so it’s difficult to recontextualize him as a famous person. He has an admirable work ethic and is never content to rest on his laurels. He’s constantly seeking something new, an interpretation of the text, something spontaneous, something alive.”

They felt happy about inspiring others, saying: “I feel it to be a role of privilege because I suppose I wouldn’t have known when I was younger that I would necessarily be out and visible. That alone feels like… I feel deeply fortunate to be in this position.
