Maisie Williams Is Totally On Board With a Stark Reunion
Game of Thrones season 7 is 10 days away. Who knew time could go so slowly as we all wait in anticipation for what's to come. And don't worry, Maisie Williams shares our excitement.
In a recent interview with Time Magazine, she gave the scoop on her hopes for her character Arya season 7 (like she doesn't know!) and her feelings on the show finally winding down.
Williams, who was only 14 when the Game of Thrones debuted on screen, is excited at her new prospects. "I think it’s a time to look quite positively at the future and really try to shape my career without being tied to anything...I’m like, 'Oh, I can just go traveling for a year — I can do anything, really!'"
The now 20 year old actress also revealed that she shares our wish for a Stark reunion.
"I would like her to meet with her family members again. I don’t really know how that would go down, but I would love for the Starks to be able to work together. That’s my hope for her future. It’d be really lovely to finally share a scene because that’s what we’ve been working for for so long."
Hopefully Maisie is just being coy, as she obviously already knows what season 7 brings. If she's unsure of what a Stark reunion might look like, we may not see one this season. However, all signs are pointing to this happening, so we probably shouldn't worry. After all, "the lone wolf dies and the pack survives". To make it through, the Starks need to work together.
As for season 8 spoilers, it appears we're out of luck (so far!). According to Maisie Williams, the Game of Thrones team doesn't release the scripts to the cast until a month before shooting. "It’s quite nice, really," Williams says of her uncertainty, "if I knew the ending right now, it’d be really difficult to keep it a secret!"
