This may come as a shock to you, but David Tennant‘s name isn’t actually David Tennant! I didn’t know that and to be honest I am a bit shocked, I am a huge fan of the actor but I think I’m not that of a bigger fan to know this fact. The Doctor Who and Jessica Jones actor had to pick a stage name when he got into the acting game due to another actor already having his name, David McDonald. Desperate to find a new last name, Tennant searched through a music magazine and ended up naming himself after Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys. Listen to Tennant telling the whole story and about Dr. Who.
