Maisie Williams in next Doctor Who
Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams surfaces alongside the Doctor this Sunday.
Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams surfaces in this Sunday’s Doctor Who episode.
While details on the plot are sketchy, she’s playing young Viking Ashildr.
“I didn’t realise when I was younger that women were written so badly,” she told Radio Times, “but going further into this career I realised there are a lot of really bad characters, that it’s not common to come across females who aren’t just ‘the girlfriend.’”
“Me and Jenna (Coleman) were talking about it,” Williams explains. “When you get a script they always include a sentence or two about the character, something like – Jason: 36, strong, built, quick, witty and a description of his personality.
“There there’s his girlfriend – Sarah: hot, blonde. And that’s it! ‘Hot looking but in a cute way.’ That’s your character!”
If she’s anywhere near as good as GoT or her Cyberbully performance, this should be a goodie.
She’d make a top companion while we’re at it….
7:30pm Sunday on ABC, and earlier on iview.
