Maisie Williams Thinks There's a "Good Chance" She'll Reprise Her Doctor Who Role in Future Episodes

This weekend's Doctor Who episode will see Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams conclude her two-episode arc, but according to Williams, she may become a recurring character. When asked whether she would return for future episodes, she said she "hoped so" and that she believed there was a "good chance" her character would return:

The Woman Who Lived - Will Ashildr be back?

Maisie Williams speculates on the future of her character after 'The Woman Who Lived' - will she be back?

In last week's "The Girl Who Died," (spoilers!) Williams appeared as a young Viking Girl who died in battle and was then revived using an implanted computer chip that rendered her immortal. She will appear once more in "The Woman Who Lived," having lived for hundreds of years, she has become a highway bandit who goes by the name "Knightmare." 

As Williams states in the above video, there is precedent for immortal characters becoming significant supporting players, most notably John Barrowman's Jack Harness. She clarifies that she doesn't really know whether her character will be back, as "only the crew" really knows what's in store. But the video was posted by BBC's official Facebook account, which seems like a tease if she's never coming back, and her performance was so highly acclaimed, we wouldn't be surprised if she reprised her role.

Doctor Who's "The Woman Who Lived" airs Saturday at 9pm on BBC.
