Doctor Who star Matt Smith disguised himself as Bart Simpson so he could walk around Comic-Con without being mobbed by fans.

The 30-year-old actor wandered the floor at the San Diego convention wearing a rubber Bart Simpson mask, and even tried to strike up conversation with fans at the Doctor Who stand, who were oblivious as to who he was.

Matt revealed in a backstage video for BBC America: "I'm going on the floor as Bart Simpson because I love the Simpsons and I'm going to go and check it out."

As he wandered around the convention incognito, checking out the stands he said: "It's been the first year that I can properly do this. I'll just pretend to be American to people."

Matt even visited the Doctor Who stand where he looked at Dalek models and posed for a picture next to a giant poster of himself, but no one realised who he was.

At the end he laughed: "No one wanted to talk! Everyone's like 'Who's the weird guy talking to me as Bart Simpson?' Hey guys I tried to talk and make friends!"

To add insult to injury, you've had difficulty finding an appropriate job for your level of expertise. Instead of holding out for the perfect opportunity, you should take a low level job that yields regular pay.More
