Maisie Williams “misses” Game of Thrones, but also remembers the drawbacks


It’s been almost two years since Arya Stark sailed off into the sunset (sea) at the end of Game of Thrones, bringing to an end Maisie Williams’ 10-year stint as the iconic character. Looking back on her time as the youngest Stark daughter, does she miss anything about the experience?

“I miss the people, absolutely,” Williams told Tatler, for which she also shot some terrific photographs. “It was such a great connection that we all had. We were on the most successful show of all time, but when you’re in it, you don’t get to do anything else but be on the show.”

Since Game of Thrones, Maisie Williams is branching out

Yeah, being on a show as all-encompassing as Game of Thrones would leave little time for much else. Now that it’s over, Williams has some interesting projects lined up, including playing punk icon Jordan in Pistol, a new FX series about the Sex Pistols, from director Danny Boyle.

Jordan was famous for her fashion sense. Williams should be able to relate, because she’s also sartorially adventurous:

I told you they were terrific photographs.

That’s Williams with her boyfriend Reuben Selby, with whom she’s starting a fashion label. And that’s on top of her developing an app called Daisie, which helps young creatives find people interested in their work. And she’s been appearing as the lead in shows like Two Weeks to Live, a dramedy where she plays a survivalist with a list of things to do before the world ends.
Next to all that, a fashion line should be a snap.

And if Williams ever decided to return to the role of Arya Stark, I’m sure there would be a lot of people eager to watch her. If there’s any character who deserved a sequel, it’s her.
