A girl has a name, and that name is Arya Stark. Or Maisie Williams. Depending on who you ask. The final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones is set to air… some time next year. Various actors have wrapped their respective portions for the fantasy series, but some are no doubt still at work for the no doubt massive undertaking that is the last hurrah for this series.
And this brings us to Maisie Williams, who has wrapped on her portions for Game of Thrones and gave minor tidbits to The Guardian when discussing her final moments as Arya Stark.
“I ended on the perfect scene. I was alone- shocker! Arya’s always bloody alone. But I was alone and I had watched a lot of other people wrap. I knew the drill, I had seen the tears and heard the speeches. I got to the end and I didn’t want more. I had exhausted every possible piece of Arya. And this season was quite big for me. I had a lot more to do. Mainly because there’s just less characters now, so everyone’s got more to do.”
So it sounds like by the time that Maisie Williams had completed her portion for Game of Thrones, she had already seen some of her fellow co-stars come and go as they completed their respective portions on the series. But as for Arya Stark, it’s apparently the perfect scene. And Williams is right, Arya is usually alone. But at least she’s not blind.
With the final season of Game of Thrones upon us? Where do you hope to see Arya Stark’s story ultimately end? Should it be in Winterfell? With Joffrey dead, she can’t get her revenge on him like she did with Walder Frey. Maybe Cersei? Let us know where you’d want Arya’s story to conclude in Game of Thrones in the comments below.
