Dr Who has just returned to our screens with a thrilling opening episode of series 11 staring the extremely talented Jodie Whittaker as the 13th Doctor.  However, she will be joined by sidekick Ryan Sinclair who is played by Tosin Cole.

Star Wars fans are unlikely to know the name Tosin Cole however, he did make a brief appearance in The Force Awakens.  Tosin is not the first actor to have crossed over franchises are reported by entertainment outlet Bustle

Cole’s acting talents were also enjoyed by audiences on the big screen back in 2015 when he secured a brief role in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Yes, seriously. Cole played X-Wing pilot Lieutenant Bastian, and during an attack on the fictional Starkiller Base in the film, he said the line “Direct hit! But no damage”.

Interestingly, Cole is now the fourth actor to have appeared in both Doctor Who and Star Wars, alongside Warwick Davis, Dave Prowse and Felicity Jones.
