Matt Smith, who will be staring as the Doctor next year, was payed just £500.00 to appear in together, which only costed a small £40,000 to produce in total.
At the time Matt was a little known actor, who flew across to Germany last November to shoot his part. Amazingly only 3 weeks later Smith signed a 5 year contract as the new Doctor Who. It is said that this contract will be worth about 1 million pounds- a huge difference to his minor £500 for a film only 3 weeks previous. The film he stared in is also up for the cannes prize.
