Now, footage has been captured of the actress filming on set in South Wales alongside the Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi!
The 18-year-old looks like she’s sticking to her tough girl roots, as she appears in the photos (above) to be a bandit robbing a stagecoach. Little does she know, the passenger inside just happens to be the Doctor!
The actress doesn’t give away her role completely, but she has hinted that her character will get under the Doctor’s skin:
“Whether she is good or bad is up for discussion, I think. She does put the Doctor to the test and it’s sort of a dynamic that we haven’t seen before.”
She also discusses how being a part of the iconic series is almost an extension of her Game of Thrones family.
“Everyone is so accommodating and lovely and happy to have me. There’s no rivalry that I thought there would be – ‘You’re from Game of Thrones’ and I’m like, ‘You’re from Doctor Who’. They’re really lovely.”
We can’t wait to see if Williams channels that Arya Stark feistiness to her Doctor Who character!
