Pics: Maisie Williams on the Season 7 set, wearing a VERY interesting costume


Last we saw Arya Stark, she had gone undercover as a serving girl at the Twins, getting closer and closer to Walder Frey before finally slitting the old villain’s throat. Fresh from her time with the Faceless Men, Arya is now a master of disguise.

It looks like she’ll continue to make use of her newfound talents next year. The Daily Mail has published new photos of actress Maisie Williams, who’s played Arya for six years, on the set of Game of Thrones Season 7. She’s wearing an extremely interesting costume that could give details about what she’ll up to come the summer of 2017.


Okay, let’s take a look.

First of all, the composition and background of these photos recall ones previously taken of actors like Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne), Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth), and Bella Ramsey (Lyanna Mormont) at Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge, Northern Ireland. When we saw those pics, we assumed they were all filming interior scenes at Winterfell—after all, that was the right combination of characters. Was Williams part of that? And if she’s filming scenes at Winterfell, does that mean that Arya heads north and reunites with her family in Season 7?

Maybe. The space at Linen Mill is expansive, and there’s no reason it has to be limited to one interior set. The production can and has shot other things in the area. (The nearby Riverrun set is still up, for example.) Also, just because Williams’ trailer looks similar to the ones in other shots doesn’t mean it’s the same. We could be looking at two different trailers in two separate locations.

But then there’s the matter of that costume. It definitely has a Northern feel to it, what with it covering Williams’ body all over—gotta protect yourself from the cold up north. It’s reminiscent of what Bella Ramsey was wearing when she was recently photographed.

It also looks similar to what Bran wore in his visions last season.

There’s a bit of Ned Stark in there, too.

Basically, the outfit rings a lot of bells, and they’re mostly Northern bells.

But then again, winter has come, so there could be good reason for Arya to bundle up if she’s in the Riverlands or even King’s Landing. However, this outfit would look out of place in either of those locales, and Arya wouldn’t want to call attention to herself. That’s bad Faceless Man technique.

Another question: is this part of some disguise? That is Arya’s modus operandi nowadays. Could she be sneaking round the North for some reason? Or maybe she’s just come home.

What do you guys think?
