DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – Spanish star Antonio Banderas and Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams are among the actors to attend a gala event hosted by TV network OSN in Dubai on October 12.
They will walk the red carpet at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray ahead of an event experience to announce OSN’s 2016 programming line-up. The gala will be hosted by Bassem Yousuf with Arab stars Hayat Al Fahad and Ahmad Helmy also in attendance.
After a long career as a film star — with roles in films as varied as Desperado, Shrek and the upcoming take of the Chilean miners, The 33, in his portfolio — Banderas is joining other Hollywood stars making the move to the small screen. He is due to star in and executive produce Havana Quartet, a Cuba-set drama in which he plays a detective. The show is currently in development.
Williams, meanwhile, made a name for herself as Arya Stark in the hit fantasy show from HBO based on George R.R. Martin’s novels. She’ll also appear in another genre hit this winter, joining Peter Capaldi in two episodes of long-running British sci-fi show Doctor Who. The first, The Girl Who Died, is due to screen in the UK on October 17.
