Maisie Williams on 'New Mutants' casting rumor: ‘Sign me up'
Maisie Williams has broken her silence on those New Mutants casting rumors.
“I can’t say much about it at all, but I would absolutely love to be a part of it, [and] to be a part of the Marvel family,” Williams said about possibly joining the X-Men spin-off when asked recently by EW. “New Mutants looks absolutely incredible and I’ve always loved the idea of spin-offs and [director] Joshua Boone is incredibly talented. So, yeah, sign me up.”
Last month, a report surfaced that the Game of Thrones actress was attached to join The New Mutants, which Boone (The Fault in Our Stars) is set to write and direct.
If cast, Williams will supposedly play one of the lead characters, Wolfsbane. In the comics, Wolfsbane is a Scottish girl who could transform into a wolf-like creature at will. Ironically, Williams’ Thrones character, Arya Stark, was once called “wolf girl” on the show, in season 1, in reference to her family’s direwolf sigil.
