The person who del Toro thinks deserves her own Jaeger is none other than Maisie Williams. Don’t believe it? Check out the tweet from the man, himself.
Had lunch with Maisie Williams yesterday. Remarkable. Dammit- if PR2 happens, that girl is getting a Jaeger.

This is one of those things where it’s so out of the ordinary that it may just work. Williams has already proven herself to be one, tough S.O.B. on Game of Thrones as Arya Stark. Also, don’t let her setback on the show fool you, either. She’s poised to kick some serious behind on that show.
Now for the fun part. What should her Jaeger’s name be? A throwback to Game of Thrones would be fun, but is probably too expected. Hmm…what should it be?
Pacific Rim 2 is set for release at some point in the future.
