After Arya Stark totally (SPOILER ALERT) slayed the Night King in “Game of Thrones,” Maisie Williams has big shoes to fill for her next acting gig. Luckily, she’s booked a new role that’s pretty fierce – as if she could ever play a character that wasn’t.
UK media and entertainment company Sky has announced a six-party comedy series called “Two Weeks to Live.” Williams will play Kim, a woman raised by a single mother, taught to survive in mysterious ways after the death of her father, CNN reports.
The show starts off with Kim entering “the real world” with the knowledge she learned back in her rural home life. She must honor her father’s memory and run from a murderous gangster with friends she meets along the way.
Sky’s description of the show reads, “Kim is no ordinary fish out of water – she’s more like a great white shark who knows how to strip a Smith & Weston SDVE pistol in 6 seconds flat, skin a deer to make a sleeping bag, and perform all the routines from ‘Dirty Dancing.’”
Sounds like your typical, fierce Williams role with a little bit of normal teenager sprinkled in the mix.
The project will be written by Gaby Hull, who previously worked on “Cheat.”
