Maisie Williams is to portray a “young misfit” who’s lived “a secluded country life” in new Sky Original comedy series, Two Weeks To Live.
The 22-year-old actress, who portrayed Arya Stark in all eight seasons of Game of Thrones, is set to star in the six-part series written by Cheat‘s Gaby Hull.
The synopsis reads: “When an unlikely prank goes wrong, she finds herself on the run from a murderous gangster and the police with a massive bag of stolen cash. With the survival techniques she has picked up from her upbringing, however, she might just get through.”
Williams’ character is said to have lived “a secluded country life”, which we will interpret as a ripe ground for rebellion.
Commenting on the role, which begins filming this year, she said: “Looking forward to getting into something new, I think Two Weeks to Live has really great potential and I want to make something incredible with this wonderful team!”
Jon Mountague, director of comedy at Sky, said: “With Maisie Williams leading from the front, Two Weeks to Live is to die for. Bold, British and very, very original, we can’t wait to wow audiences with even more great comedy.”
