Matt Smith may be departing 'Doctor Who', but he hasn't ruled out making an appearance in another sci-fi franchise.

The 30-year-old - who recently filmed his first movie role in Ryan Gosling's 'How To Catch A Monster' - has admitted he would like to be cast in either 'Star Trek' or 'Star Wars'.

Asked at Comic-Con if he would like to play a character in 'Star Trek' , he said: "Yeah, I would [work with] JJ, or 'Star Wars'. So, just putting it out there."

"I love Star Trek and I love JJ Abrams. What that man can do with a steadycam is amazing," he added.

However, he added that he fears Benedict Cumberbatch may have done him out of a role, after starring in the most recent Star Trek film, 'Into Darkness'.

"Ben’s kind of done the English villain now, hasn’t he? And he was great in it," he added.

Matt is set to make his final appearance as Doctor Who in the Christmas special later this year.
