Arya Stark is a badass. It is known. Part of that is how the character is written — she may have had her strongest season yet in season 8 — and part of it comes down to Maisie Williams’ performance. For a behind-the-scenes look at how hard she worked at the fight scenes in “The Long Night,” watch the below snippet of a special feature from the Game of Thrones season 8 Digital Download, which IGN got a hold of:
This is most likely from the special feature “The Long Night.” HBO describes it like this:
Join Game of Thrones show runners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss along with many of the major stars and behind-the-scenes players as they look back at the colossal filming that was the Battle of Winterfell in Season 8, episode 3. This special spotlights the weaponry, lighting, special effects and more that went into the making of this unforgettable episode.
Other special features on the Digital Download version of the series include “The Final Season,” which features interviews with lots of cast and crew members, and Jeanie Finlay’s two-hour behind-the-scenes documentary, The Last Watch.
In closing, Maisie Williams is my hero.
