Chipo Chung played Chantho, a Malmooth, in the Doctor Who episode Utopia. For this role, Chipo had to wear an insectoid prosthetic - David Tennant did not know what she looked like in real life until the last day of filming when she went up to him. The prosthetic was voted best of Series 3 by DWM readers. Russell T Davies was amazed at the way Chipo could always remember to start sentences with "Chan" and end with "Tho".
In 2017, she appeared in the second season of the AMC show Into The Badlands, ironically enough (considering Chantho's fate) playing a character called the Master.
