Billie Piper may have gained notoriety as a singer at the young age of 15 after her 1998 single “Because We Want To” topped the charts, before joining the Doctor Who cast in 2005, but the actress claims celebrity is “poison and sad.”
The 40-year-old actress, who is probably best known for playing Rose Tyler in the BBC One science fiction series, has admitted that her most adoring and “liberating” moments were before she became famous.
Billie Piper rose to fame at the age of just 15.
Billie said in an interview with The Guardian regarding the upcoming season of I hate suzie: “Fame is bad. It’s repulsive. Such a dark thing, that. And it will change how you perceive life on a daily basis in a way that, in my opinion, is dismal.
“Most of my happiest and most liberated memories take place before fame.
“Not to be inferior to my kids! I have, without a doubt, experienced life-changing experiences with my children, and they truly make me happier than anything else, but I also treasure the memories of not being famous.
The actress continued by stating that she hoped to play “less and less” in the future despite her success with the first series, which debuted in 2020.

It’s irritating since I enjoy creating stuff, she said, according to the outlet. I adore creating. As I get older, I find that I prefer creating things from scratch more and more, thus I anticipate that I’ll perform in less and less acting in the future. I adore my job.
But I’ve had enough of this foolishness. To be honest, ever since I was 19. From a young age, it seemed fairly toxic.
I’m now quite grateful for having had those experiences in the past, as it allows me to concentrate nearly exclusively on my business rather on the police.
The movie about “Mandy, a nihilistic young writer and mother who falls in love with Pete, a traditionalist yearning for a restored male identity while navigating her problematic family and patriarchal workplace,” according to the synopsis, marks Billie’s directorial debut.
Along with writing the earlier series and acting in both, Billie is also the Executive Producer of I Hate Suzie and Secret Diary of a Call Girl.
