David Tennant has won a daytime Emmy for his voice work on the Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars series.

The Tenth Doctor was named Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program at a ceremony in Los Angeles for voicing Huyang, a droid who trains Jedi on how to build lightsabers.

Clone Wars supervising director Dave Filoni said Tennant’s work as the Doctor convinced him that the actor, himself a Star Wars geek, was perfect for Huyang:
I absolutely loved what David Tennant was doing on Doctor Who. There was such a quizzical nature to his character, a sense of whimsy, but he could still get very powerful emotion out of the character — a lot of intensity, a lot of anger — just an incredible display of range.
