SDCC 2014: Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams in Talks to Play Ellie in The Last of Us Movie

Game of Thrones’ spunky and adorable yet totally maniacal and violent young female character, Arya Stark, has quickly become a favorite to those who are enraptured by George RR Martin and HBO’s series.  However, Arya’s actress, Maisie Williams, may be seen in a totally different (yet  equally badass) light as she is in talks to play Ellie in the film adaptation of beloved video game, The Last of Us.

This news was brought to us during a San Diego Comic-Con panel just moments ago as writer Neil Druckmann and producer Sam Raimi came forward and stated that Maisie is their first pick for Ellie.  While they made it clear that nothing is finalized, we are definitely in hopes that Maisie will accept the role, especially seeing how epic her character Arya has been the past few seasons of Game of Thrones!

There is also a new promo image for The Last of Us film which can be seen below:
