Maisie Williams is set to take on a new role in Rooster Teeth’s gen:LOCK animated series. Williams is credited as being an incredible self-driven character in the hit show Game of Thrones. Her role as Arya Stark garnered her praise from viewers as well as distinguishing herself as an influence for young girls. Stark uses her training as a Faceless Man to her advantage as she crosses out names of the people who have wronged her family. With each episode, it becomes evident that not only Stark is growing up, but Williams is too.
Pertaining to her new show, Williams will play Cammie MacCloud, a Scottish hacker. This character is known to be clever and quick-witted. This is not a role Williams will have any trouble with. The series takes place during an all-out war where a new type of robots called mecha are trying to destroy the world. A team of pilots is recruited to help put a stop to them.
Rooster Teeth recently tweeted the news.

Watch the trailer below.
Gray G. Haddock is the creator and showrunner for gen:LOCK. He describes the cast as being perfectly in tune with their characters. He, however, had a lot of admiration for Williams and what she brings to the role. “Working with Maisie is as fun as it gets,” said Haddock. “Her energy and the sense of humor she brings to Cammie is an absolute delight. I’m running out of superlatives to describe how perfect this cast works for the characters, but Maisie truly sounds exactly like how Cammie does in my head — she’s brilliant.” This certainly puts Williams as the one to watch out for once the show comes out.
Also joining the cast are Michael B. Jordan who plays the lead, Julian Chase, and Dakota Fanning, his love interest. The show will premiere in January 2019.
