Doctor Who star Matt Smith has admitted that he is keen to establish a career in Hollywood.

The actor said that he may try out for acting roles in Los Angeles, once filming on the next series of the BBC sci-fi drama is complete, suggesting that may be his last appearance on the show.

He told VH1:
I've got another year of Doctor Who, but then I'm certainly going to come and give it a shot. [I'd like to] come and hang out in LA.

The star previously told the Radio Times that he was unsure when he would leave Doctor Who.

"There's no break from [the show]," he added. "It's a conveyor belt of things to do but it does get lighter. That said, I'm being creative and challenged and you've got pay the bills."

Last year, Smith reportedly signed a contract to remain with Doctor Who until the show's 50th anniversary in 2013.

Earlier this year the sci-fi series was broadcast in the US at the same time as the UK to boost ratings in America.
