New Doctor Who Ncuti Gatwa Really Knows How To Keep A Secret



Ncuti Gatwa was working on Barbie when he learned he was going to be the new Doctor, and according to Simu Liu, what followed was a most impressive feat of secrecy.

“[He] didn’t tell anyone anything,” Liu explained (via Variety). “And then it was suddenly announced over the weekend. When we got to work on Monday we were like, ‘Dude, how long have you been able to take this?’ And he says, ‘Two months,'” Liu revealed.

Anyone who’s ever had to keep a secret knows how hard it must have been, and Liu remarked that he couldn’t have done it. “I would have been burned,” he said.

Liu spoke from experience, as his casting as Marvel superhero Shang-Chi was similarly covertly cloaked by Disney powers. However, the actor admits he wasn’t as fussy about keeping it a secret as Gatwa was: “[Marvel chief Kevin Feige] said, ‘We’re flying you to Comic Con in San Diego in four days, until then just shut up. We want to be able to surprise the whole world… don’t tell your parents, don’t tell your friends. Don’t tell anyone,’” Liu recalled. “I said, ‘Yes, yes, yes.’ And then I immediately called my best friend. It’s too much news to keep with you.”

Gatwa wasn’t there to confirm or deny if he really kept the news to himself, but at least we know he kept all his “Barbie” co-stars out of the game – which was hard enough on its own have to be.
