English actress, Maisie Williams says her playing Ellie in adaptation of Naughty dog’s critically-adorned survival horror game, The Last of Us is “looking like a yes.”
The 17 year old actress is best know for her role as Arya Stark in the HBO television series Game of Thrones. She won few awards & nominations for her performance.
Williams was asked to moderate The Last of Us Movie comic con panel earlier this year, but since she wasn’t familiar with the game, she declined.
“There was a whole thing that went on Twitter [of fans suggesting me for the role]. I didn’t know a lot about [the game]. I Googled it.
Ashley Johnson — who did Ellie’s voice — [fans] asked her what she thought of me and she said, ‘That’s pretty much my dream.’ I don’t follow her but I was silently stalking her wondering what she thought of all this,” Williams told IGN.
She goes on, “And when I got my American agent and he said, ‘If there’s anything you want to do, let us know’ — America’s got such that can-do attitude. That was the first time I came to him with anything. So he said he’d set us up for a meeting next time I’m in America. And they did.
So I had a meeting with [producer] Sam Raimi and [game director] Neil Druckmann. And they said they’d love if you would moderate the panel at Comic-Con, but you’d need to watch the walk-through and know your s*** because there are massive fans of this and we wouldn’t want it to go wrong.
I was doing so much work for Thrones that I didn’t want to half-arse do it, so I said I’m not going to [moderate]. They said fine, but they’re gonna announce they had talks. So the way it was left is they want me to do it, and I want to do it.
But there’s no script, no director, and no anything else. So at this moment, it’s looking like, ‘Yes,’ but it’s still such early days. If they make it in 30 years, they can’t have a 40-year-old Ellie. So at the moment, it’s looking good, and I’d love to do it. Hell yeah,” Williams concluded.
The Last of Us Movie will be written by Neil Druckmann and produced by Sam Raimi. A director for movie is yet to be announced.
