‘Game of Thrones’ Star Maisie Williams Wishes She Could ‘Make Gay Marriage Legal Everywhere’


HBO organized a webchat this week with Maisie Williams, the 17-year-old who plays Arya Stark on Game of Thrones, and the young actress shows she is on board with the majority of her generation when it comes to equality:

If i could have three wishes I'd wish for happiness for me, my family and everyone I care about, I'd solve world hunger and make gay marriage legal everywhere.

Williams was also asked what her character would be like if she were living in modern times:

I'm going to put it in "Mean Girl" terms. So you know there's always that girl who looks perfect and has perfect hair and makeup stays on all day and wears a perfect handbag and has her nails done and they would never chip…Arya would not be that girl. She'd be the polar opposite and love it. she would be the ruler of the underdogs. She wouldn't be popular and people would hate her but she wouldn't care. That's what I like about her, she wouldn't care. "Do what you want and what you stand for," that's 2014 Arya.

    If an episode is dragging all you have to do is wait for Tyrion, Dany or Arya to show up and be awesome. Pretty sure I would add Prince Oberyn to that list this year.

    I love that show on Sundays: “The Adventures of Arya and The Hound”.

    Such a wise, talented young woman. And I can’t believe she’s 17! I thought she would be like 12 or so just based on the character she is playing. But then again she is an actress!
