Highlights from Maisie Williams’ Live Q&A with HBO Connect
By Lightbringer on in Interview.

Yesterday, HBO Connect held a live Q&A with Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams. Maisie fielded a variety of questions from the fans about her work on the show as well as her personal life. Here are a few of the best Thrones/Arya related answers:

Firebyte1: Which do you think was the most epic Arya moment?

Maisie Williams says: I still quite like the most recent episode. Killing Polliver was pretty cool and I liked that so far. I think Episode 3 of this year when she’s talking to the farmer and the Hound and she’s lying about the Hound being her father and all that. It’s a big deal because Arya can pretend and for her that was a pretty cool moment where she can actually lie to everyone and still come out on top.

JAKE_CLEGG: What is the most significant experience you’ve taken away from working on the set of Game of Thrones so far?

Maisie Williams says: I think I just matured. That’s the biggest thing I could have taken away from the whole thing. I’ve had a fast track to who I want to be. I know all of my friends are struggling to what to pick in college and I’ve been given a fast pass to kick start my future. To have an ambition and a goal at this stage is amazing. I can’t ask for anything else, I’m so grateful. What I can take away is that I’ve been given the chance to do what I love. I’ve got my foot in the door and I’m not going to back down on doing what I love.

ElusiveIllusion: What is the costume process like during filming? Is Arya’s clothing comfortable?

Maisie Williams says: I wouldn’t say any costumes on GoT are comfortable (and that’s coming from the character with the most comfortable outfit). If I’m not comfortable, I can’t imagine what Cersei feels like! The costume process because we shoot in Belfast, I wear two layers of thermals, skin colored socks, my trousers, my costume top and my jacket thing and my belt and sword and I have a massive neck rag. The neck rag sounds like a scarf but every morning I have to get stitched into it. And then I wear boots…Arya Stark is a trendsetter!

MRTN93: how much chicken can you and the hound eat put together?

Maisie Williams says: It would be in the thousands somewhere. I am such a chicken fiend! At the end of the day they had so many chicken legs we didn’t end up eating so I took them home with me. I was like it’s free chicken guys, what’s wrong with you! I didn’t have to buy any dinner that night, I was beaming from ear to ear when I walked back to the car with the box full of chicken. I’m really happy, I’m glad that the world liked that scene.

    She said that she always thought Sansa would be a fantastic Queen and Arya would be a great Hand.. Just the friendship of those gals warm my heart. :) I definitely agree with her. Stark Sisters Assemble!

    Arya spinning a nice fiction and correctly naming house Tully. She is learning to blend in.

    GreatJon of Slumber,

    FaB usually handles it and he’s in a trip in Utah. I think.

    I find that Maisie’s interview answers are consistently among the most eloquent and well thought out ones among the whole cast.
