Wondering what the cast of Game of Thrones will be doing after the show ends?

 

Well, one of them has it figured out: Maisie Williams aka Arya Stark has joined the cast of Rooster Teeth’s new animated series called gen:LOCK; the series takes place during a worldwide war and will follow a team of young pilots who have been trained to control the giant robot bodies called “mecha,” according to Entertainment Weekly.

 

According to Entertainment Weekly, Willaims will voice Cammie MacCloud, a Scottish hacker and the youngest member of the gen:LOCK team. The character will be “mischievous and energetic.”

In a statement to Variety, showrunner Gray G. Haddock talked about his excitement regarding the casting. “Working with Maisie is as fun as it gets,” Haddock reportedly said. “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.”

 

The cast for the series already includes Michael B. Jordan, who will voice the lead character Julian Chase and David Tennant will be Dr. Rufus Weller, who is a scientist for the Experimental Science Unit and the inventor of the gen:LOCK technology. The series also has Dakota Fanning voicing Miranda Worth, a mech pilot, and Kōichi Yamadera as one of the new recruits, her character having just transferred from Japan’s military forces to fight alongside the others.

 

gen:LOCK will premiere in January of 2019.
