Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has become the latest addition to the star-studded voice cast of Rooster Teeth’s anime series gen:Lock, joining the likes of Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther), Dakota Fanning (The Alienist), David Tennant (Jessica Jones) and Kōichi Yamadera (Cowboy Bebop).
gen:Lock takes place in the future, where Earth’s last free society finds itself on the losing side of a global war and recruits a diverse team of young pilots to control the next generation of giant, weaponized robot bodies known as mecha. Williams is set to voice Cammie MacCloud, a mischievous Scottish hacker.
“Working with Maisie is as fun as it gets,” states creator and showrunner Gray G. Haddock. “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.”

gen:Lock is expected to premiere in January 2019.
