Arya Stark will temporarily be trading in her sword for a sonic screwdriver!!
It’s been reported that Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams is set to guest star on the popular BBC show Doctor Who!!
BBC America announced that the 17-year-old will appear on the upcoming ninth season of the hit sci-fi series, currently starring Peter Capaldi as the Doctor.
The actress’s role is still under wraps, but producer Steven Moffat assures that her character will challenge the Doctor and “give him exactly the right sort of hell.” Williams had this to say about her appearance on the long-running series:
“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.”
Williams is best known for her role as the fan-favorite Arya Stark in the hit fantasy series Game of Thrones. As season 5 is just around the corner, the actress has hinted at “big ending” for Arya this season.
What that exactly means, we’ll have to find out when GoT returns next month!
Will YOU be watching Williams’s appearance on Doctor Who when the show returns this fall?
