Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams to star in Doctor Who
The British actress, who’s won our hearts as Arya Stark in Game of Thrones, will go from storybook to sci-fi this year when she makes a guest appearance in Doctor Who. And there we were thinking we couldn’t be more excited for the show’s ninth season, which will air this autumn!
Williams said of the role: “I’m so excited to be working on Doctor Who as it’s such a big and important part of British culture. I can’t wait to meet the cast and crew and start filming, especially as we’ll be shooting not too far from my home town.”
“It’s not possible to say too much about who or what she’s playing, but she is going to challenge the Doctor in very unexpected ways. This time he might just be out of his depth, and we know Maisie is going to give him exactly the right sort of hell,” revealed Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat.
