'Game of Thrones'' Maisie Williams Previews the First Clip of Arya at House of Black and White
The utterly adorable Maisie Williams stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to chat about Arya’s upcoming Season 5 adventures. Without getting spoilery, I’ll just say that for readers, this clip is pretty cool because it signals the start of — ooh, this is tricky — some very exciting chapters in the younger Stark sister’s life. Williams is really psyched for her character’s arc, and positively thrilled that she finally gets not one, but two costume changes!
So freaking ah-dorable, and her reasons for Googling instead of reading are actually quite good.
As Game of Thrones watchers, we often marvel over various female characters’ strength — Daenerys survived Drogo and the Dothraki, Sansa has transformed and gone from being manipulated to manipulator — but both of those ladies have help and support. Arya is often completely on her own on her own, and what she’s about to undertake and experience is more than most characters can imagine. I can’t wait to see how Benioff and Weiss play it out for us onscreen.
**Please remember, no book Spoilers in the comments.
