Maisie Williams talks about her upcoming X-Men film, New Mutants




Game of Thrones stars are rocking it in Hollywood now, and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) is all about that X-Men life. As the release of her next film, New Mutants draws closer, there’s rising anticipation about the film’s performance, being in a weird timeline in the X-Men canon, and the stakes are high with Maisie being in the film. She recently spoke to Screenrant about the film, and some Game of Thrones stuff. Read on!

The film has been postponed multiple times, and the first trailer for the film dropped recently. She was asked if she took advice from Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) for the role, since Sophie recently had her own stint in the X-Men Universe:

“No, not really… Actually yeah, kind of a little bit. I called her when this was sort of coming about and was chatting to her about potentially signing up for something that’s long-term again and just ask her more questions about it and I always knew I wanted to do something big and long run after the show, but it’s come quite soon, so yeah, just had a lot of questions since she’d already made the leap“

The interviewer pointed out that she’s the seventh Game of Thrones star to star in a Marvel film, to which Maisie replied by saying “Marvel is huge.”

When asked about her accent for the film, Maisie talked about how her Game of Thrones experience affected her playing this part:

“I did a Scottish accent I did more of an Aberdeen Accents in a film that I did a few years ago, so I’d already been a little bit, but my acting coach from Game of Thrones when I was a child when I was a lot younger, she is Scottish, so I just asked her we went back and forth in the phone a few times, but then like this was a lot more bigger a lot more lines I use just the lady that I used on Game of Thrones and what really helpful was she has an app so you can do it when you’re away and you can do it on your own, that’s really been helpful because kind of embarrassing doing in front of someone else because when you do mess up you know it’s bad and they definitely know it’s bad, so it’s quite fun doing it on your own and, yeah, I find it okay. I really like doing accents because I hate my voice, I think it’s really bad it’s the most cringe-worthy voice ever, so I find it really helpful to create a new person as well because while Rahne’s really different to the kids that played before anyway, but off the back of Game of Thrones I find myself playing the same girl not over and over again, but little bit, so it’s nice to do an accent because then you feel like a new person.”

New Mutants hits the theatres 3 April. Are you excited? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Humility is a virtue possessed by few. Even though Game of Thrones reached great heights, the show’s cast was always humble to their roots. They have won the admiration and respect of fans all over the world due to their down-to-earth nature. For example, Jason Momoa reached out to a young Aquaman fan battling cancer last year. Kristian Nairn (Hodor) talked to Digital Spy about the show’s success and praised his co-stars.

He said, “It didn’t happen overnight, and I think for us that was a good thing. I mean it was always immensely popular, I just think as the seasons went on it moved from a really amazing TV show into a kind of phenomenon. It sort of turned into that thing that everyone talks about, people say over the watercooler at work. “

“It’s crazy, because every TV show you watch these days, every single TV show or movie, they all reference Game of Thrones. It always blows me away. I watch a show I love and there’s a reference to Hodor, there’s a reference to Khaleesi. It’s become such a huge part of the public psyche. I don’t think we ever dreamed before season one was out that that would happen. It still happens!”

“It kind of grew, it really doubled per season. But we grew into it, which made it kind of easy. The cast was really down to Earth. I can say hand on heart we’re all really down to Earth. I think that’s a really nice thing. Just the whole Hollywood thing, we’re all kind of aware of that… Game of Thrones is so brutal and real. It’s important to keep it real.”

Game of Thrones was an enchanting journey that lasted for nearly a decade. Some of the show’s cast was very young when the show began. They sort of grew up with the show, like Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Isaac Hempstead-Wright. Stardom can be a bit scary when you are young. Especially for someone as studious as Isaac Hempstead-Wright. He revealed about his nervousness in an interview with Digital Spy.

Isaac (Bran) said, “It was actually a little bit intimidating. I remember seeing the show go interstellar. Especially when you’re separate from it a bit [Bran was off-screen during season five], you really just see how huge it is when you’re not in the midst of the whole thing.”

“I really think season five was when it had its meteoric rise. So coming back into season six – and I hadn’t acted for a year; I’d been doing my GCSEs – coming back in was kind of like, ‘Argh! I’ve forgotten how to act!’”

He continued, “I think also there had been a lot of bonds forged in that season, and a lot of people had grown up. I’d kind of grown-up, but I had that key year of being 15, 16 away from it. So it was a weird one to come back to. But after a couple of days, it was business as usual.”

Game of Thrones ended more than one and a half years ago. It was a beautiful journey for both the fans and the crew that lasted for a decade. The fantastical series still holds the record for the most number of Emmy Awards won. On the occasion of New Year, the cast of the show came together for an interview with Digital Spy. They shared their experience while shooting for the fantasy epic. Gwendoline Christie (Brienne) and Kristian Nairn (Hodor) talked about how they were cast for their roles.

Gwendoline recalled, “I immediately rang my agent and said, ‘I want to do this’. My agent said, ‘What are you talking about? I’d never ever put you up for this. She’s ugly, her nose is broken, her teeth are broken and you’ll need to use a sword’.”

Nairn remembered, “I was a first-time actor. I was glad I didn’t know anything about the show at the time. Because if I had I would’ve realised what a huge audition I was going for. I had no idea what Game of Thrones was. I had auditioned for a part in another movie called Hot Fuzz, and I didn’t get the part. It was the casting director Nina Gold who remembered me – she called me in for this audition. I didn’t know it at the time, but when you’re called for an audition, that’s really in your favour.”
