Few actors are as beloved in the geekosphere as David Tennant. The Scottish actor has spent his career delivering some of the most unforgettable performances in the science fiction and fantasy genres. From 2005-2010 he won our hearts as the Tenth Doctor on the iconic British series Doctor Who. He brought the demon Crowley to life in Amazon’s Good Omens. And he frightened viewers as the abusive and controlling Kilgrave in Netflix’s Jessica Jones, as well as playing Barty Crouch Jr. in the Harry Potter films. Tennant is just as adored for his performances as he is for being a positive presence in fandom and in real life. He turns 50 today, and many took to Twitter to celebrate his birthday.

Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
