Maisie Williams discusses relationship between the Stark sisters

The growing tension between the Stark sisters in the last season of Game of Thrones had made many fans believe that either of them will die. It wasn’t until the last episode – ‘the Dragon and the Wolf’, where we saw the trial of Petyr ‘Littlefinger’ Baelish by Sansa Stark for his treasons against her family.

The last scene which had the duo discuss their pasts and reminiscing their father – Eddard Stark’s words, clarified that they had settled their differences and gave us a wishful thinking of the pack surviving in the final season. In a recent interview with the Elle Magazine, Maisie Williams – the actress who plays Arya Stark talked about the relationship her character shares with her sister. She said:

“I think until last season Arya was always killing the baddies. But then we saw her start to use those manipulative powers…It’s not until she had that whole dialogue with her sister Sansa in the last season that you realize what she’s become, that she’s being awful to someone who we love.”

Game of Thrones is a TV series which has many themes and characters but also shown women empowerment through various strong leaders like Brienne, Cersei, Margaery, Daenerys, Lyanna Mormont, and many more. Maisie went on to speak:

“For me, [Game of Thrones] is a medieval world in which women don’t have a lot of rights, and yet they still prevail. But I do think that as the seasons have gone on it’s become more and more amazing for women. And this final season is going to be incredible. But I do think that as the seasons have gone on it’s become more and more amazing for women. And this final season is going to be incredible.”

“It just feels great, being on set with all these girls. They’re all ruling, you know, they’re all back on top – it’s pretty impressive”

Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) and Maisie have been best buddies since the very first season of Game of Thrones. They not share a strong bond as the Stark sister but, also as sole sisters in their real life. Talking about her character and praising Sophie, she said:

“For me, it was a really great moment as an actor to be able to play the character you love as a baddie. It felt so amazing, even though it’s an awful scene… Who gets to be on set with their best friend? Me! We lift each other up.”

She lastly talked about her role in the final season of Game of Thrones coming to an end. She ended by saying:

“Season one to eight, that’s what I wanted. I was in the first episode and I want to be in the last.”

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!

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.
