David Tennant’s son Ty is now a television actor, thanks to his debut on Saturday night’s Casualty.

The 17-year-old appeared on the latest episode as Aaron on the medical drama.

And his mum, fellow actress Georgia Tennant, was bursting with pride as she posted about her son’s acting on Twitter.

She wrote: “I am so proud of Ty Tennant tonight on BBC One’s Casualty. He was so good they didn’t feel the need to crush him to death in a lift shaft…”

Georgia’s funny tweet was referencing her own role in Casualty.

She had previously played the character Heather Whitefield, who was killed off just two episodes in after becoming trapped under a burning lift shaft.

He then found himself in hospital after suffering an injury following a seizure on his birthday.

David Tennant is Ty’s adoptive father. He revealed in 2012 that he’d adopted him after David’s wife Georgia had raised him as a single mum up to the start of their relationship.
