Appearing in a hit television series can really change your life forever, with some young wannabe actors going from relative unknowns, to becoming household names around the world. That is exactly what has happened for the British actress Maisie Williams, who has become one of the most recognisable faces in the world, thanks to her role as Arya Stark in the hit HBO fantasy drama series Game of Thrones.
Getting her face seen by millions of people around the world, while putting in some very impressive performances along the way, has certainly opened up plenty more doors for Maisie Williams in Hollywood. While she has landed some other interesting and exciting roles off the back of Game of Thrones, she could be set for her biggest role yet, if all goes to plan.
Director Guillermo del Toro is hoping to eventual make the movie sequel Pacific Rim 2 and, if the project does get the green light, there is a role in the film for Maisie Williams. Guillermo recently took to his official Twitter account to say, "Had lunch with Maisie Williams yesterday. Remarkable. Dammit - if PR2 happens, that girl is getting a Jaeger." Let's hope it happens.
At this moment in time, there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding Pacific Rim 2, although Universal did recently claim that they were still committed to making the movie happen at some point in the future. When exactly that will be is anyones guess. We are keeping our fingers crossed that Pacific Rim 2 gets made sooner rather than later, as we would love to see Maisie Williams in the film.
