Fandoms colliding alert. The BBC announced this morning that Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on “Game of Thrones,” will guest star on a future episode of the channel’s long-running “Doctor Who.”
Williams has already started filming, and said on her first day, ““I’m so excited to be working on Doctor Who as it’s such a big and important part of British Culture. 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.”
Her character details are being kept under wraps. Other actors set for guest roles on the show currently starring Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman include Rufus Hound, Tom Stourton, Ariyon Bakare, Simon Lipkin, Ian Conningham, Murray McArthur, Barnaby Kay, John Voce, and Struan Rodger.
Williams’ gigs outside “Game of Thrones,” which is set to premiere its fifth season on HBO next month, include docu-drama “Cyberbully” and coming-of-age historical drama “The Falling.”
