Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) talks about Littlefinger's death

Game of Thrones is one of the greatest shows to have ever graced the television medium. The show had made stars of many actors that joined it when their careers were just starting off, and about eight years later, as the show draws to a close, these stars have a lot to look forward to.

Most of them already have a lot of projects going for them. In a recent interview, Maisie Williams, who plays the role of Arya Stark on Game of Thrones, recently talked about how she is excited for the show to end. Read on!

Maisie Williams says she's happy about Game of Thrones ending, and it's for a good reason

The actress recently spoke to BBC Newsbeat, and explained how future prospects of her career excite her that the show she will have been on for eight years is finally ending. She said :

“Anytime I get to work from home, is downtime. I think if you stop and do nothing, it drives you insane. Well it does to me anyway. I’ve been lucky enough to be home for a whole month now, which has been wonderful.”

She explained her true passion, which is independent films, and that is what she wants to do after Game of Thrones is done :

“I’ve just started a production company, so I’m now realising how hard the industry can be. Coming back here and listening to all the films nominated and getting back into watching independent films just makes me realise how much I miss it.”

“It’s the only place I’ve ever really wanted to be to be honest.”

Maisie Williams reveals how she feels about Arya fighting with Sansa

She said she’s quite excited for the show to end :

“I’m really excited for Game of Thrones to finish and there’s going to be time for me to do whatever I want. That’s just incredibly exciting and it will be nice to pick roles that I want to do. I can show the world what sort of actress I want to be and shape my career a little bit.”

She continued :

“On one hand it’s really nerve wracking to know that I won’t have that support blanket and safety net, but on the other hand I’m free. I’d love to do a British independent film, I’d love to make it and I’d love to be in it. There are a couple of directors that I’d love to work with – Dexter Fletcher being one.

I’d like to just do some work here, for Britain.”

Seems like Maisie knows where she wants to go! What do you think about this? Excited about Maisie’s future? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

It turns out Sophie Turner’s tattoo was a major Game Of Thrones spoiler after all

HBO releases photos from Game Of Thrones Season 8 Episode 6: The Iron Throne

About a year back, on the The Late Late Show with James Corden, Sophie Turner had showed all of us a tattoo on her arm that read, “The pack survives” with the Stark sigil, along with it.

Turns out we had a spoiler with us all along. For those of you who have seen the finale, will know what we are saying.

In the finale episode, “The Iron Throne”, Bran the Broken becomes the King of the Six Kingdoms, Sansa Stark becomes the Queen in the North, Jon Snow goes Beyond the Wall and mostly becomes The King Beyond the Wall and Arya Stark sets to fulfill her dream to become Nymeria and explore the world. Everything that each of them went through finally culminated into a bittersweet end. The promotional image of the pilot with Ned Stark on the throne almost made sense suddenly.

And turns out, Sophie Turner had already given out a major spoiler about this through her tattoo.

“It’s just a quote from last season,” Turner had said when asked about it. “Everyone figures that the pack really does survive, but it’s just a moral that I like to live by.”

She also said that some people had advised against her getting it just in case fans react to it the way they did. But she did not pay heed to it. Turner also took to Instagram after the airing of the episode.

“The pack survived,” she wrote alongside an image of herself, Williams and Hempstead Wright.

Game of Thrones fans react to Jon Snow and Ghost reunion in the series finale

Game of Thrones pulled off a sneaky on us. In the fourth episode Season 8, we saw Jon Snow leave Ghost without petting him. In the series finale, Season 8 episode 6, “The Iron Throne“, we saw Jon reunite with Ghost, and the fans loved it. Read on!

Jon had earlier sent Ghost with Tormund to the real North, while he was leaving Winterfell, and he didn’t even pet him. This had upset a lot of fans. However in the series finale, we saw Ghost waiting for Jon at the Wall, and they reunite, resulting in our good boy getting a long pet. The fans took to Twitter to appreciate this:

How did you react to Jon reuniting with Ghost and finally petting him? Tell us in the comments, down below!

Game of Thrones Finale sees Arya Stark finally embracing her old dream

no game of thrones sequel says hbo executive

Game of Thrones series Finale gave each character their dues, some satisfactory and some not so much. But the Stark kids seem to be doing pretty well! Just as Sansa got her childhood wish, Arya Stark too took her first steps in a direction she always wanted to go.

This post contains spoilers, so stop reading if you haven’t seen the finale yet (but seriously, what are you doing? Hurry up!).

game of thrones sansa finale satisfying end

“What’s West of Westeros?” Arya Stark had asked out back in Season 6. She was talking to Lady Crane, an actress who helped her with a stab wound and let Arya stay at her place. That’s what she really wants, to go off exploring beyond where the maps stop.

She couldn’t then. Arya came back home, avenged her family’s death, saved humanity from the undead invasion and survived the carnage at King’s Landing. All her duties done, and Winter already receding, Arya now goes back to her old dream of becoming an explorer. In the last scenes of Game of Thrones Season 8 Finale, we see Arya sailing on a ship, journeying to the “west of Westeros”.

Arya had always been an anomaly in the rigid society of Westeros. She was expected to marry a lord and bear his children. But Arya never saw herself in that role. That’s why she rejected Gendry’s proposal in episode 4, even though she clearly had affection for him. She knew that marriage, even to someone she loves, will bind her in society’s expectations. Arya rejected that with all her heart.

Game of Thrones may not be as kind to everyone, but I’m glad at least Arya got her happy ending!
