Maisie Williams talks Up On The Roof & GoT

This Thursday 17 October sees the premiere of director Nour Wazzi’s latest short film Up On The Roof, starring Maisie Williams, as part of the London Film Festival.

The film follows two neglected teens, 13-year-old Marcus and 15-year-old Trish, who create a world together on the rooftops above the streets of London.

Earlier this year, Flicks And The City were lucky enough to be invited on the set of Up On The Roof to speak to Maisie about her role in the film and how it compares to life on Game of Thrones.

Check out the video to see Maisie chat about starring in Up On The Roof, what we can expect from her character in the film, how she gets into character, what attracted her to the script and why she couldn’t put it down once she started reading it, and what it’s like working with her co-stars.

Maisie also tells us how playing Arya Stark in Game of Thrones season 3 compares to previous seasons, how her dance background helped with sword-scene choreography, why she’d like Arya to meet up again with Jaqen H’ghar and Syrio Forel, what Arya thinks of The Hound, losing Gendry and Hot Pie, and teaming up with Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass, and much much more!
