Maisie Williams talks about the pressure of succeeding on Doctor Who

Maisie Williams, who is best known as the ferocious young Arya Stark in Game of Thrones, stole our hearts right before she skewered it with her sword. Now the actress will be crossing fandoms in an upcoming episode of Doctor Who. And she’s a little nervous about it.

In a clip from BBC America, below, Williams discusses her concern about the two-parter, “The Girl Who Died” and “The Woman Who Lived,” which will air on Oct. 17 and Oct. 24. Williams, who plays Ashildr the Viking, said, “I hope that it lives up to everyone’s expectations.” 

In addition to the clip of Williams speaking, we have two scenes from the upcoming episode. The first scene involves Clara in distress—and  getting some entertaining help from the Doctor. The second is a clip of Vikings in a trap. It’s up to Clara and Ashildr to find a way out. 

Check them out. And let us know in the comments how much you love Williams. But you couldn’t love her more than we do.
