David Tennant stars in "Fright Night" (2011), opposite Colin Farrell and Anton Yelchin, as Peter Vincent.

David Tennant is a classically trained actor whose career spans film, television and theater. His role as the Tenth Doctor in the BBC series "Dr. Who" earned him the National Television Awards Best Actor three years in a row, a Best Actor BAFTA Award in 2007 and the TV Quick Awards Best Actor in 2006, 2007 and 2008.

Tennant was heard as the voice of Spitelout in the animated adventure "How to Train Your Dragon" and played the role of Barty Crouch Junior in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire." He will soon be seen in the comedy "The Decoy Bride."

His other feature films include "Pirates!" "Glorious 39," "St. Trinians II: The Legend of Fritton's Gold," "Bright Young Things," "Nine ½ Minutes," "Sweetnight Goodheart," "The Last September" and "L.A. Without a Map."

Tennant was born in Bathgate, West Lothian, Scotland, and grew up in Ralston, Renfrewshire, where his father was the local minister. Because there was already an actor called David McDonald, David adopted the stage name David Tennant (inspired by the Pet Shop Boys lead singer Neil Tennant).

Performances with the Royal Shakespeare Company were followed by lead roles in several high-profile dramas for the BBC, including "Takin' Over the Asylum," "He Knew He Was Right," "Viva Blackpool," "Casanova," "The Quatermass Experiment," "Secret Smile" and "Recovery."
