Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams, known for playing the vengeful Arya Stark, just wrapped up a Reddit AMA only moments ago. She was funny and very forthcoming with her answers. Here some of what she had to say:
On making up lyrics to a song she hasn’t memorized
All the time. I thought Taylor Swift’s new song said “Something-something-Starbucks-lovers” when it actually said “I’ve got a long list of ex-lovers” and that was news to me. And I realized I’d been embarrassing myself for like 2 months!
On video games
Me and my brothers enjoy playing a computer game called “Amnesia” which is really scary!
On difficult scenes to film for Game Of Thrones
There’s actually a scene in the coming season… which was my most difficult scene to film. And I think fans are going to be really excited about it. More emotional than we’ve seen Arya in previous seasons.
On the moment she realized the popularity of Game Of Thrones
Season 3. At the season 3 premiere, we went to the Chinese Theater in Los Angeles, and stepping out of the car, with hundreds of people screaming my name, is when I realized that this show completely changed my life. It was very, very daunting – I found it quite scary – but it happened gradually, so I had time to get used to it.
On the things that annoy her
Patronizing adults, saying “back in my day, blahblahblah” because I’m sure they found it annoying in their day when adults said back in MY day – I don’t know what it was like in your day, I was only born 17 years ago, so stop being patronizing about it!
On which actor’s personality most resembles their GoT character
Rory (McCann) is quite similar to The Hound before breakfast, in that, if he hasn’t eaten, he’s kind of grumpy! haha! But I love ‘im regardless.
On what she would do if she took the iron throne
Ehm… oooh, if I was the queen of Westeros, the first rule… I would make everyone a Wildling, because I think their costumes are really cool!
It’s probably the most shallow answer ever, but it’s true.
On her favorite guilty pleasure movie
Oh! JOHN TUCKER MUST DIE. It’s like, about 3 girls that fancy this one guy, and it’s so cheesy, but I can’t stop watching it, ever.
On dancing, and her favorite type of dance
I like jazz, because it doesn’t matter what shape or size or length your legs are, you can use this dance to benefit you. Yeah. It’s good for all shapes and sizes, I guess. You can modify it to benefit your body type.
