Maisie Williams has her next post-‘Game of Thrones’ gig lined up and she’ll be working with some big names on Rooster Teeth’s new series ‘gen:LOCK‘ – or, should I say that we’ll be hearing her work with some big names as this is an animated series. ‘gen:Lock’ already is slated to bring us some of the genre’s hottest stars and Williams will be voicing characters along with the likes of Michael B. Jordan, David Tennant, and Dakota Fanning!
The new series will give us a team of young pilots who are set to control a new generation of “mecha” or giant weaponized robots. Williams has taken on the role of Cammie MacCloud who is described as “a mischievous Scottish hacker with boundless energy, and the youngest recruit to the gen:LOCK program.”
According to ‘gen:LOCK’ showrunner Gray G. Haddock:
“Working with Maisie is as fun as it gets. Her energy and the sense of humor she brings to Cammie is an absolute delight. I’m running out of superlatives to describe how perfect this cast works for the characters, but Maisie truly sounds exactly like how Cammie does in my head — she’s brilliant.”
Being “as fun as it gets” is enormous praise for the amazingly talented actress with Jordan and Tennant as co-stars.
Head of Rooster Teeth Animation Gray G. Haddock has shared the following about the series:
“Being able to craft an ensemble cast using both our own talent and well-known actors from outside of the company is a fantastic opportunity. Part of what makes Rooster Teeth so unique is that our staff runs the business, makes the company function day-to-day, writes, directs, produces, and performs on-camera and in the recording booth. It keeps our team and our community invested in what we do. I hope to work in as much of the extended Rooster Teeth Animation acting family as I can over time into this show, one way or another, so fans can continue to hear their favorite voices in this new world.”
