So, she is after a role for her boyfriend and has one eye on jobs in LA.
That's probably not what I would say if I was starting my role as companion in Doctor Who.
In her defense though, he has given interviews saying how much he loves the show and would do something on it if asked.
As for taking meetings in LA, she does have to think about a career after Doctor Who. Can't be the companion forever. Maybe I wouldn't have put that out there just starting out…but I can't fault the girl for looking at projects to do when Who isn't filming.
