Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has joined the new Aardman feature Early Man.
In the new film, which will come to cinemas in January 2018, Williams will star alongside Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hiddleston. She’ll be portraying Goana, a rebellious companion to Redmayne’s hero Dug who helps him through the clash of the Stone Age and Bronze Age civilisations.
Speaking about her character and casting, Williams said: “I’m a huge Aardman fan – having the chance to work with Nick Park is a dream come true, especially as I get to voice such a fantastic character as Goona. I can’t wait for audiences to meet her.”
She also shared a picture with her character on Instagram, with the words: “Das ma girl!”
Director Nick Park said: “Maisie is a terrific actress, and she is of course no stranger to embodying a valiant heroine. I’m most excited to see her breathe life into Goona – I know she’ll be the perfect ally to Eddie’s Dug.”
