Speak your truth, Arya! In a new interview, ‘Game of Thrones’ star Maisie Williams got real about her dreams for her character and, because we’re talking about ‘GOT’ here, that obviously involves murder!
As Game of Thrones fans know, Arya (Maisie Williams) has got a list with names on it and, well, let’s just say you don’t want to end up on there– unless of course you want to end up dead. Obviously, while the fate of the list is ultimately up to Arya, that doesn’t mean Maisie, 18, doesn’t have a few opinions of her own. In fact, when asked whether she’d want Arya to kill Cersei (Lena Headey) or Melisandre (Carice van Houten), she had a very specific– and surprising– answer!
Would Arya Kill Melisandre Or Cersei?
“The Red Woman,” Maisie told Entertainment Weekly. “She’s bad news to everyone. [Melisandre has] been underestimated. She’s got a lot of power over everyone and ultimately she can be a really dangerous person. Arya doesn’t know that, but Maisie as an audience member knows that. We are seeing cracks in Cersei, but Melisandre doesn’t look like she’s losing steam anytime soon.
What’s In Store For Arya?
Okay, well, that was quite the definitive answer, but what would happen if Arya and Cersei were to cross paths? “It would be amazing, and one would end up dead by the end of it,” Maisie added. “I don’t know if I want her dead. She’s a baddie, but we love to hate her.”
Speaking of ending up dead, does Maisie have any idea what’s in store for Arya’s future? Not really! “[The showrunners] treated me to a pizza, and I just sat there asking questions and they won’t answer anything,” she said. “It’s petrifying.”
