Maisie Williams talks about what will happen if The Hound and Arya ever meet again, and more actor reactions
Game of Thrones Season 7 finished on a high note with ‘The Dragon and the Wolf’ which aired last Sunday. The episode had a lot of good moments, and a climax that totally held up the “what’s next” emotion that us fans have been associating with the show. HBO’s Making Game of Thrones recently released a new montage of bits from several actors from the show, and here are some of the best ones!
Starting off, if you remember, we saw The Hound and Brienne of Tarth discuss Arya Stark, and they both seemed awfully proud of her. Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, talked about how it would be if Arya and the Hound met again :
“I don’t think there’s any hard feelings anymore. What Arya experienced in Braavos took a far worse toll on her. The feelings she had about the Hound were very immature, and I feel like she’s grown up since then. If they met again, she’d hopefully just be an effective killer with him, rather than against him.”
We love the sound of that! We also saw Theon Greyjoy get some long awaited redemption, as he talked to Jon Snow, and went on to assert his role among the Ironborn, to try and rescue his sister Yara. Alfie Allen, who plays the role of Theon Greyjoy, talked about this :
“It brings Theon back to the man he once was, and makes him realize who he is now, how much time has passed, and how [he and Jon] have both changed. Things are very different. Theon’s definitely been humbled, to say the least. I would say going after Yara is an easy decision for him to make; and one that he wants to use to rectify his position in the world.”
We saw Bran Stark and Samwell Tarly have a sort of mutual nerd chemistry, and John Bradley, who plays the role of Samwell, believes that it’s the start of something wonderful :
“There are a lot of similarities between Sam and Bran; mainly in that they’re dismissed physically. People think they don’t have what it takes to survive. What they’ve got to offer is unique; something that no one else can bring to the table. There are thousands of men who can shoot an arrow and swing an axe, but Sam knows he and Bran possess skills nobody else will ever get. That makes this such an interesting partnership.”
Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion) talked about what his character was thinking during that last scene we saw, and how it was to film it :
“‘It’s finally come. This is it.’ He knew it was going to happen. I think they all knew the army had come. The dragon was a surprise, and the giants. That’s a major gamechanger…Everything is green screened, so it was just me and [Kristofer Hivju, who plays Tormund] on top of a platform looking over an empty studio: We had to imagine a dragon coming, the walls shaking and all that. It was good fun.”
Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane) added :
“This is what we’ve been waiting for the whole time. The wight dragon is probably the most horrible sight you can ever get; it’s not good news, so it was an intense sequence. But running around the set was amazing.”
