Maisie Williams has a death wish, thankfully not for real life

All of us are well-aware about the constant gore, murders, violence and people being killed randomly on Game of thrones. Well, all of done is done because the plot demands it and it has seemed to work till now, amazingly at that.

So, Maisie Williams, the 18 year old much loved British actress who portrays Arya Stark on the show, has a death wish. Not for herself, thankfully, but for her character. She wants Arya to die a gory death and thinks that will make for an amazing plotline.

In Maisie’s own words, “In Season One everyone realised how brutal the show was when they killed off Sean Bean, just like that. At the end of the day, these horrible deaths make great storylines. It makes the show what it is. So it would be really selfish if I were to say, “Oh, I never want Arya to die.” I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I know that it will make a great storyline”.

Game of Thrones season 6 is the best according to showrunners

So yes, Arya Stark wants a gory death so that game can have a strong plotline and unexpected twist. Maisie also gave some examples, in case, you were wondering what kind of death she wanted. She pointed out to Oona Chaplin and Sean Bean’s death and said that their gory unexpected deaths helped the show a great deal.

Game of Thrones has already been a huge success and has managed to gather diehard fans around the world who just can’t seem to stop speculating what happens next and who is going to die. Because, well, everyone knows how much George loves to kill people on his show.

Maisie also added that, “I’m sure some people are going to be unhappy with some things that are coming up, but you can’t deny that it’s a breath of fresh air.”

We can only hope that George is not listening to her. Nobody wants Maisie to die that early, apart from Maisie herself.

George R. R. Martin praises HBO's Chernobyl, says it's worthy of Emmys

Game of Thrones is over, but HBO has no plans of slowing down. Immediately after Game of Thrones ended, HBO aired a limited series called Chernobyl, which became an instant hit. Now, the creator of the Game of Thrones universe, George R. R. Martin has praised Chernobyl and expressed his approval for the show to win at the Emmy awards. Read on!

Chernobyl is a mini-series about the nuclear plant disaster in the Ukrainian city of the same name, in 1986, and has been named the best ever miniseries by TV enthusiasts worldwide, except maybe in Russia. George took to Twitter to express his love for the series:

Not only did he praise the show, but also Jared Harris, whose performance in the show has been loved by the fans as much as the series itself. Needless to say, the show is expected to shine in the awards season, as Martin expects.

See Tormund and Gendry enjoy a game on Nintendo Switch in Game of Thrones behind the scenes photo

Game of Thrones had the ultimate face-off in Season 8 when the Army of the Dead faced the living folks in Winterfell. The Battle of Winterfell saw a lot of people uniting to take down the Night King, and among them were Tormund Giantsbane, and Gendry (now Baratheon). A new behind the scenes photo from the sets shows the two enjoying a nice game on a Nintendo Switch. Read on!

The picture, posted on the Game of Thrones subreddit, shows Joe Dempsie, who played Gendry, and Kristofer Hivju, who played Tormund Giantsbane, still in their costume and the bloody makeup, just sitting down to play. Take a look:

As we all know, the Battle of Winterfell sequences took a gruesome 55 nights to film, and have been described by the stars as some of the roughest times they have had filming for the show. So it’s no surprise that they would have at least some way to relax on the sets in between takes or appearances.

Nintendo consoles are also famous for being the best for the local multiplayer experience, so that’s probably why these two seem so engrossed in the game. If only we knew which game they were playing!

Take a closer look at "A Song of Ice and Fire" and "The Book of Brothers" from the Game of Thrones finale

The Game of Thrones finale was packed with a lot of things going down, but there were two very important props that we could have used a better look at – the books! “A Song of Ice and Fire” and “The Book of Brothers” made brief appearances in the finale. Now, thanks to HBO, we have a better look at both the books. Read on!

HBO’s Game of Thrones behind the scenes blog, Making Game of Thrones recently featured both the props, in a batch of photos that give you a good look at them. We saw “A Song of Ice and Fire” shown off to the small council by Samwell Tarly, who reveals that Archmaester Ebrose compiled it, with the title being his own suggestion. Take a better look at it, below:
