Chat: Who is it that most inspires you?

Last updated at 10:24

When Matt Smith started playing The Doctor, the first person he looked at to base his character on was famous scientist Albert Einstein.

Is there someone who inspires you? Maybe a celebrity, sports star or someone from history? Or perhaps it's a friend, a teacher or a member of your family?

Why do they inspire you? Is there something that they do that you admire?

"My hero is Emily Davidson because as a suffragette she fought all the way. In prison to escape force feeding, when on hunger strike, she barricaded herself in her cell. Then on the 4th of June 1913 she threw herself under the king's horse and became the first suffragette martyr on the 8th of June. She is my hero because of her bravery and determination."
