The ‘Game of Thrones’ actress will guest star on the series next season.
Ever since ‘Game of Thrones’ actress Maisie Williams was announced as a guest star for the new season of ‘Doctor Who’, fans have been impatiently wondering who her character could be. But now showrunner Steven Moffat has opened up a little about what fans can expect when the young actress appears in the series later this year.
Maisie Willams will guest star in ‘Doctor Who’s’ ninth season.
Appearing at the Television Critics Assn. press tour in Beverly Hills Moffat was asked by the crowd who Williams is playing. Naturally the show runner didn't give too much a way but he did shed a little light on what fans have to look forward to.
'Game of Thrones' is infamous for killing off its characters, so without paying attention to the books (as the show seems to be doing) we looked at who we think is destined to go the way of dodo.
Prince Doran - We've only seen Prince Doran Martell (Alexander Siddig) in one episode so far, he's already made a strong impression on everyone. The elder brother of fan favourite Oberyn, who came to a horribly messy end in the last season, Prince Doran is trying his best to keep the peace in Dorne, and stop his people from seeking revenge against the Lannisters. It stands to reason, however, that his death would make give them a great reason to rise up and start a war.

Brienne/Podrick - Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) and Podrick (Daniel Portman) have been giving us a good dose of the "two buddies traveling", following in the footsteps of Tyrion (Peter Dinklage ) and Bronn (Jerome Flynn), and Arya (Maisie Williams) and the Hound (Rory McCann). The problem is, that each of those has come to a rather disastrous ending at some point, and the death of Brienne or Podrick seems likely - especially with what they seem to be getting themselves into.
With 'Game of Thrones' making her a break-out success, Maisie Williams has taken her career in a new direction with the film 'The Falling'
The outspoken young actress Maisie Williams has become one of the most riveting stars of 'Game of Thrones', playing Arya Stark, the plucky survivor who isn't afraid of taking action with her sword. Now 18, Williams is making the leap to the big screen in Carol Morley's 'The Falling', the hugely acclaimed, artful drama about a fainting epidemic at a girls' school in 1969.

So why did she opt for something so offbeat rather than a big blockbuster? "I get sent loads of roles that are all action or moody teenagers. But the character Lydia was just very different to anything I've done before," she says. "Sometimes it feels like no one can get 'Game of Thrones' out of their heads. They think I just run around with swords, covered in mud and blood. It was lovely that Carol gave me the opportunity to prove I can do something else."

While cinematic blockbusters tickle the eyes, this film dazzles the soul. This is a remarkably evocative drama that gets deep under the skin, challenging us to see ourselves in a rather outrageous situation that shifts from quietly disturbing drama to unsettling freakiness. It's strikingly written, directed and performed to get into our heads and stay there like few movies do.
The story is set in 1969 in a girls' school located in the lush English countryside, where 16-year-old Lydia (Maisie Williams) and her best pal Abbie (newcomer Florence Pugh) are members of the Alternative School Orchestra. They're also inseparable, carving their undying love into a tree trunk. But once Lydia has sex with a boy, their relationship begins to shift. And when Abbie faints in class, it seems to become contagious. Suddenly girls are collapsing all around the school, much to the consternation of the headmistress (Monica Dolan) and her stern deputy (Greta Scacchi). As the hysteria spreads, Lydia gets increasingly confused by the occult beliefs of her older brother (Joe Cole) and the agoraphobic behaviour of their mother (Maxine Peake). But what she really misses is her childhood connection with Abbie.
Writer-director Carol Morley (Dreams of a Life) lets this play out like a deranged fairy tale in which Lydia's voyage to self-discovery is both wondrous and terrible at the same time. In its vivid exploration of feminine adolescence, the film echoes such classics as Picnic at Hanging Rock or Heavenly Creatures, by way of David Lynch and Nicolas Roeg (whose son Luc is one of the producers here). And the bold, knowing themes are echoed in gorgeously artful cinematography by the great Agnes Godard plus a stunner of a soundtrack by Tracey Thorn. Amid this sumptuous atmosphere, Morley weaves an enigmatic story packed with mystery, revelations and yes, burgeoning sexuality. But even more than this, the film taps in to the earth-mother power girls discover as they emerge into womanhood.
