Maisie Williams is to appear in the new series of Doctor Who.

The Game of Thrones actress will guest star in an episode of the sci-fi drama when it returns for its ninth run in the autumn.

Williams, whose role has not yet been revealed, said: “I’m so excited to be working on Doctor Who as it’s such a big and important part of British culture.

“I can’t wait to meet the cast and crew and start filming, especially as we’ll be shooting not too far from my home town.”

Showrunner Steven Moffat added: “We’re thrilled to have Maisie Williams joining us on Doctor Who. It’s not possible to say too much about who or what she’s playing, but she is going to challenge the Doctor in very unexpected ways.

“This time he might just be out of his depth, and we know Maisie is going to give him exactly the right sort of hell.”

Comedian Rufus Hound and Siblings’ Tom Stourton have also been announced for guest starring roles in series nine, along with Ariyon Bakare, Simon Lipkin, Ian Conningham, Murray McArthur, Barnaby Kay, John Voce and Struan Rodger.

Doctor Who will return to screens later this year, with Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman reprising their roles as The Doctor and Clara.
