Thanks to the huge success of so many television shows over the past few years, we have seen a number of new, young and talented stars coming through and beginning to make a name for themselves. One of the biggest shows in recent years would have to be the HBO fantasy drama series Game of Thrones, which has given us a lot of talented up and comers.
One of the most exciting young talents to come from Game of Thrones, is none other than the British actress Maisie Williams, who plays the role of Arya Stark in the hit HBO series. While Maisie has not exactly gone on to prove herself away from Game of Thrones, it now looks like we could be set to see her take on her next big role.
We have known for a while now that there are plans afoot to make a big screen adaptation of the hit video game The Last of Us and now it looks like things are beginning to move forward. Writer Neil Druckmann and producer Sam Raimi were at San Diego Comic Con, where they revealed that they have spoken to Maisie Williams about playing the role of Ellie in The Last of Us movie.
For those of you who are not familiar with The Last of Us video game, it centres on "a disillusioned man is tasked with bringing a young girl across America, her survival absolutely essential, as she may hold the key to mankind's future in a world overcome by a deadly virus." It will be interested to see how the movie adaptation takes this on and what changes it makes.
