Maisie Williams' name has become all but synonymous with her beloved Game of Thrones character, Arya Stark. The career-defining role, which also happened to be her first-ever acting gig, even garnered the young Bristol-born star an Emmy nod. However, Williams has appeared in a number of films and TV shows concurrent with her stint as the princess-turned-killer.
The year 2012 saw Williams' career skyrocket as she took on a number of roles. While continuing to portray Arya on Game of Thrones, she also landed a role in BBC's supernatural miniseries The Secret of Crickley Hall as Loren Caleigh. She even lent her talents to a Funny or Die short called "The Olympic Ticket Scalper" in which she played the appropriately named Scraggly Sue alongside British acting giants Patrick Stewart and Simon Pegg.
Williams has kept busy over the years, appearing in a wide variety of films from 2014's action-packed Heatstroke to 2015's mystery drama The Falling. That same year, she appeared in Doctor Who as the reluctant immortal Ashildr, and, in 2017, she returned to the world of sci-fi to portray Lucy Walker in Netflix's techno-thriller iBoy.
In The New Mutants, Williams is set to step into the shoes/paws of Rahne Sinclair (Wolfsbane), a Scottish mutant who can transform into a wolf—or the transitional stage between wolf and human—at will. Raised by a family of religious extremists, Rahne struggles with her newfound abilities, believing them to be representative of her inner sinfulness.
