A young Doctor Who fan has become a viral video superstar after an adorable question warmed the collective cockles of the world’s heart.

Six-year-old Sydney asked star Matt Smith whether he was afraid of the dreaded Weeping Angels at a San Diego Comic-Con panel. His response (and their resulting conversation) went viral on YouTube and various entertainment outlets, making the young Whovian an internet hero. If you missed the full-panel, you can check out her moment of glory below.

What do you think of the video?

    Hopefully the little girl will be able to look back at this in a few years and smile.

    I saw this a few days ago when first watching the full panel. That girl is SO precious and Matt was so great answering her question.

    Matt is so brilliant with kids. No one caught it on camera, but he was a HUGE hit at the UK convention he went to. everyone was especially talking about how genuine and non-pandering he was with the young fans!
