‘Game of Thrones’ star Maisie Williams is Headed to ‘Doctor Who’

Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams will have a guest role on the new season of Doctor Who, BBC America announced on Monday.

“I’m so excited to be working on Doctor Who as it’s such a big and important part of British Culture,” Williams said in a press release. “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.”

No details have been given on who she will be playing, but Executive Producer Steven Moffat commented that “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.”

Doctor Who will return this Fall. You can catch Maisie Williams in Game of Thrones on April 12 when the fifth season premieres.

  1. Maisie is excellent on Game of Thrones, so I’m excited for this.
    I have never really warmed to Clara and #12 just isn’t doing it for me. 🙁
    Hopefully Maisie can breath new life into the series for me and maybe we’ll get lucky and her role will end up being more than just a single episode cameo.
