Maisie Williams was a guest on Huffington Post Live yesterday to talk about her new film Heatstroke, and of course, Game of Thrones. Maisie had nearly lost her voice from back to back weekends spent at music festivals, but was in good spirits as she chatted live via Skype.
Maisie begins the interview discussing her new film, working with hyenas, and having the opportunity to film in South Africa after getting her start on Game of Thrones.
Around the 6 minute mark talk turns to Thrones, and Maisie answers a number of questions from fans, including who else she would like to play on Game of Thrones, and how she feels about the spoiler culture surrounding the series. She also discusses Arya’s development throughout the season, the decision she made in the finale, playing a badass, and much more. Watch the entire interview below!
Maisie also spoke with Zap2It about her new film, and compares working on the smaller production to working on Game of Thrones.
How does working on a film like “Heatstroke” compare to television like “Game of Thrones”?
It was completely different. The vibe on set was completely different. The crew was a lot smaller, and I knew everyone personally and by name. It was just a lot more intimate, I guess. Which was really, really wonderful. It was so nice to have met everyone who worked on the film. On “Game of Thrones,” there’s so many names that come up on the screen who I’ve never met and never spoken to. It’s kind of a shame that we’re all in this TV series but we’ve never spoken to each other. But on this, it’s quite nice to have that connection with everyone.
And on the subject of that music festival that she lost her voice at, Maisie took in the British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park with her friend and co-star Sophie Turner over the weekend.
