Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams Seen on the Set of Doctor Who

Maise Williams


Season Premiere January 1

Arya Stark has traded Needle in for an old-timey looking pistol!

Season nine of Doctor Who is currently filming and Game of Thrones actor Maisie Williams was photographed on set and in costume for her upcoming guest-starring stint.

Dressed as a pint-sized highway robber, 18-year-old Williams sported a badass mask and a pair of tall boots that seem perfect for swashbuckling (whatever that is). The photos of Peter Capaldi are a little less exciting—he’s covered up by a big parka that clearly isn’t part of his wardrobe.

Did we mention there’s a video? The Daily Maill has footage of Williams on horseback (her day job on Game of Thrones provides lots of practice for that kind of thing) shooting a scene in which she appears to shush someone, brandishes her gun, and holds up a horse and carriage that contains the show’s star. The video was shot in South Wales’ Fforest Fawr. (How awesome and magical does that place sound?)

Producers have yet to reveal any information about Williams’ character so we don’t know if she’s friend or foe to Capaldi’s Doctor. Either way, it’ll be interesting to see how it plays out when the show returns this fall.
