Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on HBO's mega hit Game of Thrones, is in talks to star in the movie version of the PlayStation exclusive 'The Last of Us'.
Buzzfeed's Senior Film Reporter, Adam B. Vary, tweeted directly from San Diego Comic-Con: "The Last of Us movie team had meeting with Game of Throne's Maisie Williams for lead role of Ellie. Nothing signed yet at all". The problem is, Maisie is 17 years old, while Ellie in the game world of The Last of Us is 14.
Naughty Dog has the last say of the casting of the roles within the movie, so we might see Williams star in the movie after all, even with her being a few years older than Ellie. I think Williams would be great for the role of Ellie, especially considering how her character has evolved in the world of Game of Thrones over the last four seasons.
