British actress Maisie Williams, who became famous as Arya Stark in Game of Thrones, talked about her brand new Marvel film ‘The New Mutants’ and used Stephen King’s reference to explain the movie.
The New Mutants is the superhero movie adapted from the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name and distributed by 20th Century Fox. It will be the eleventh film in the X-Men film series. Besides Maisie Williams, the film stars Anya Taylor ‑ Joy, Charlie Heaton, Blu Hunt, and Henry Zaga.
Maisie Williams joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe in her role as Rahne in the latest X-Men movie. While talking about the horror and superhero genres of the film during a recent interview with ‘L’Officiel,’ Williams tried to explain what kind of film is. The actress gave a perfect answer to define The New Mutants.
Here’s what she said:
“The young mutants are in lockdown in a medical center, apparently to protect themselves and understand their powers, since they don’t know their nature or how big they can get.”
“My character is discovering her sexuality, falling in love with another girl, and they are protecting each other instead of fighting. It offers a new perspective to the Marvel movies. It’s somewhere in between The Breakfast Club and Stephen King.”
Anywhere in the interview, the actress also mentioned her own production company, Pint-Sized Pictures, and revealed what the company’s name comes from.
“I created Pint-Sized Pictures with two girlfriends to showcase unknown women’s talents. We’re working on music videos, short and long films, and sometimes shows. As for the name, it’s because I’m short, the height of a pint!”
