MATT Smith has been spotted looking totally unrecognisable compared to his role as Prince Philip in The Crown.

Matt, 39, who was cast as the late Prince Philip back in 2015, was photographed walking his shaggy terrier nearby his home.

Dressed all in black – and with his brunette locks grown out long down his neck – he looked vastly different to his royal character.

Sweeping his hair back from his face, Matt kept it casual in a black t-shirt, trousers and boots, covering up with a hoodie.

He completed his look with a silver gold chain, as he was seen listening to music on his phone while strolling through the capital.

The actor was left devastated last year devastated after the sudden death of his dad, who passed away aged 73.

The former Doctor Who star previously credited his dad as being "the greatest influence" on his life.

He gushed in a 2018 interview about his family: "My old man, he's a legend. He's the greatest influence on my life, bar none.

"I often think all of my truest moments as an actor are somehow impersonations of him.

"Because when I impersonate him, emotionally or even his voice – he's from Blackburn – as a kid I would impersonate him a lot and if I can be half the dad… It sounds sentimental, but he's put his family first.

"My sister, he remortgaged the house to put her through dance school and he never missed anything."

Matt also credited his dad for helping him through tough moments in his career – including being cast as the youngest ever Doctor at the age of 26 in 2009.
