Maisie Williams to Guest Star on Doctor Who
Maisie Williams, who millions know as Arya Stark on the show Game of Thrones, is to guest star in the next series of Doctor Who as revealed today by BBC America. We think it’s a perfect fit and can see her as a furture companion to the Doctor. Mind you, it could be seen as a step down for the GoT star but hey, this is Doctor Who and everyone who’s anyone wants to be on the show!
On her first day on set, Maisie Williams said:
“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.”
Steven Moffat, lead writer and Executive Producer, added:
“We’re thrilled to have Maisie Williams joining us on Doctor Who. 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.”
Bursting with drama, wit and heart, the show continues filming with two period adventures – ‘The Girl Who Died’ written by Jamie Mathieson and Steven Moffat, and ‘The Woman Who Lived’ by Catherine Tregenna.
Starring Peter Capaldi (The Doctor) and Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald), the duo continue to time travel through epic adventures directed by Ed Bazalgette (Poldark).
Comedian and actor Rufus Hound (Cucumber) also joins the guest cast alongside Tom Stourton, Ariyon Bakare, Simon Lipkin, Ian Conningham, Murray McArthur, Barnaby Kay, John Voce, and Struan Rodger.
