And now English actress and dancer, Maisie Williams – best known for her role as Arya Stark in the HBO television series Game of Thrones provides a brief update on the potential casting in a recent interview.
“I had a lunch a little while ago and we spoke about the possibility of me playing Ellie and that’s really exciting and I would absolutely love to, she told Flicks and the City.
It kind of all came about on Twitter a long time ago. The power of Twitter still never ceases to amaze me. I went to a lunch and we spoke a little bit about it, and then they announced at Comic-Con that we had spoken about it, and since then in like every interview people have been asking me about it.
Honestly I would love to and I think they would love me to play Ellie also, and that’s where it is at the moment.
There’s no script, no director, it’s still very early days for the whole project, but if it all goes ahead soon enough I think, yeah, I would love to.”
