    We Challenged Maisie Williams And Tom Hiddleston To A Game Of Prehistoric Pictionary

    You'll probably recognise Tom Hiddleston and Maisie Williams from two of the world's biggest franchises: Tom as Loki, the Marvel Cinematic Universe's resident antagonist, and Maisie as Arya Stark, Game of Thrones' young woman on a deadly mission. Now they – along with Eddie Redmayne – are lending their voices to Early Man, the newest animation from Aardman Studios.

    The film tells the tale of a tribe of cavemen trying to navigate the transition from Stone Age to Bronze Age. So when we got the opportunity to meet with Tom and Maisie to talk about the film, we decided to challenge them to a little game of Prehistoric Pictionary...


    Tom Hiddleston: Maisie, are you ready?

    Maisie Williams: I’m ready. Let’s go. Thirty seconds on the clock.

    CHALLENGE ONE: THE BRONZE AGE

    BuzzFeed

    MW: A…man? Oh, Lord Nooth!

    TH: Yes, but he loves…

    MW: Lord Nooth building a snowman. Cooking? Lord Nooth cooking!

    TH: No! That was so bad. It was the Bronze Age. Why was Lord Nooth cooking not an option? I was trying to do a bucket of bronze.

    CHALLENGE 2: WARTHOG

    BuzzFeed

    TH: A stocking. A Christmas stocking. A dog. Hognob!

    MW: Kind of, but what is he?

    TH: A pig. A hog. He’s a figure. He’s an animation. A clay figure.

    MW: No! What other animals look like this?

    TH: A warthog!

    MW: Yes! That’s incredible.

    TH: Nine points to Gryffindor.

    CHALLENGE 3: TRICERATOPS

    BuzzFeed

    MW: A hedgehog?

    TH: No, that’s absolutely terrible. I have to start again.

    MW: A triceratops!

    TH: Yes! Do I get to keep going?

    BuzzFeed: No.

    TH: No? Oh, OK. That’s an insight into family Christmases. [laughs] I feel so much better.

    CHALLENGE 4: PTERODACTYL

    MW: Aw! OK, they sort of look a bit like this.

    BuzzFeed

    TH: A pterodactyl.

    MW: Yes!

    TH: Amazing! It also looks like a fighter jet. That’s actually brilliant, without any re-strokes.

    CHALLENGE 5: CAVEMAN

    BuzzFeed

    MW: A cloud. The sun. Raining. Nick [Park, Early Man's director]?

    TH: No, that was so bad! That’s my attempt at drawing Eddie’s character, Dug, to represent a caveman. I have signally failed to do that.

    MW: That’s quite a hard one. I wouldn’t know what I’d draw. [laughing] Nick Park?

    TH: It does look like a cloud, but I was trying to get his shaggy hair. It was a bad place to start, I think. It doesn’t matter, I’ll live to fight another day.

    BuzzFeed

    CHALLENGE 6: SPEAR

    MW: OK. OK. Start the clock!

    TH: That’s confidence, I like that.

    BuzzFeed

    TH: An arrow. A spear!

    MW: Yes! That was an easy one.

    CHALLENGE 7: FOSSIL

    BuzzFeed

    MW: A bone! But it’s going to be… It’s off to a good start. Fossil!

    TH: YES! Come on! I can’t believe you got that, that was great. I’m really flattered that you think that’s a bone. It looks like a man in freefall.

    BuzzFeed

    BF: OK, it’s 3–2 to Maisie.

    MW: I have been very lucky in the ones I’ve selected.

    CHALLENGE 8: WOOLLY MAMMOTH

    MW: Yes! But it’s got, like…

    TH: A woolly mammoth!

    MW: Yes! That is a woolly mammoth, believe it or not, ladies and gentlemen. I was there, I know what they look like.

    TH: It’s a really good woolly mammoth. Tremendous.

    BuzzFeed

    MW: Maisie wins by lucky draw.

    TH: This is what I give you for that. That’s a winning thumbs-up.
