The surviving Stark kids answer a question: Who would Ned be most proud of?


Entertainment Weekly is continuing to blast us with wonderful tidbits from its Game of Thrones cover story. Today, it posted a video featuring Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) answering a vital question: If Ned Stark could see his kids now, who would he be most proud of?

Their answers:

  • After quibbling at the beginning over how Ned wouldn’t want to show favoritism, Harington breaks down and picks Arya. “I think Arya has shown the most sort of tenacity.”
  • Turner agrees. “I think he’d probably be most proud of Arya, just because he was always very very supportive of her doing what she wanted and going agains the grain and being an independent young girl.” But then, in a Game of Thrones-like shocking twist, she reveals this was all a smoke screen. “I’m so biased and I think he’d be the most proud of Sansa, but I didn’t wanna say it because I don’t wanna offend anyone.” Twist!
  • Williams, meanwhile, shows some sisterly solidarity and picks Sansa: “I think she’s…They’ve all made changes, but I think she’s made the most shocking change.”
  • And Wright was the only one to remain diplomatic: “I don’t think Ned Stark would be proud of any one Stark over another. I think the Starks are their own unit and Ned would be proud of all of them.”

EW’s Game of Thrones preview issue is on shelves now, and features more delightful images like the one above. There are five collectible covers going around:

It’s good to see the kid’s back in fighting shape. We’ll see exactly what they get up to when season 7 debuts on July 16.
