Doctor Who Companion Millie Gibson Replaced by Andor Actress in Season 15

Doctor Who will be replacing actress Millie Gibson with Varada Sethu for its 15th season. Gibson made her debut in the series’ Christmas special, but will now be leaving after just one season. The news of the casting change was first reported by the UK’s Daily Mail and has since been confirmed by Variety. Gibson played the companion Ruby Sunday, who joined the Doctor on her adventures through time and space.

The switch in companions was unexpected, as fans had just been introduced to Gibson’s character. However, Sethu, known for her role in Andor, will be taking over the role for Season 15. Sethu’s character is expected to debut in the upcoming season, which is currently in production.

Ncuti Gatwa, who plays the Doctor in the series, spoke about the dynamic between his character and Gibson’s Ruby Sunday. He described them as troublemakers who enjoy each other’s mischief and share a connection in their pain. Both characters are flirty and cheeky.

Gibson is best known for her role as Kelly Neelan in Coronation Street and has also appeared in Butterfly, Jamie Johnson, and Love, Lies and Records. She will still appear in Season 14, set to be released in May on Disney+. However, Sethu will take over the companion role from Season 15 onwards.

Sethu’s previous television credits include Andor, where she played Cinta, a member of the rebel faction in the Star Wars series. She has also appeared in Annika, Strike Back, Jurassic World Dominion, Now You See Me 2, and I Came By.

With this casting change, Doctor Who fans can expect a fresh dynamic in the upcoming season as Sethu takes on the role of the Doctor’s companion. The series continues to evolve with each new season, keeping audiences hooked with its time-traveling adventures.
