Actress Maisie Williams will be familiar to most as popular Game of Thrones character Arya Stark, however it looks like the seventeen-year-old is about to take on another hit series, as it's just been announced today she will appear in the upcoming season of Doctor Who.
Maisie has already begun filming her scenes and has said; "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."

Steven Moffat, lead writer and Executive Producer of Doctor Who also said in a statement; “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."
No better girl!
We won't see Maisie on our screens in Doctor Who until the series returns in the Autumn, however you can catch her on Game of thrones when it returns for its fifth season to Sky Atlantic on April 13th.
