Geek worlds are about to collide! Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, a.k.a. Arya Stark is set to guest star on Doctor Who, according to the BBC. “I’m so excited to be working on Doctor Who as it’s such a big and important part of British Culture,” Williams said. “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.”
Lead writer and Executive Producer Steven Moffat 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.”
That’s all the info we have right now, but it’s a pretty awesome tidbit! Doctor Who returns with its ninth season this Fall.
