Trivia and Quotes

  • Quotes

    • Maisie Williams: (when watching the more graphic parts of Game of Thrones) I usually cover my eyes for some parts because it's a bit embarrassing, but it's just acting at the end of the day. And I've seen how the beheading was done and things like that. It looks scary, but I know in real life it was not bad."

    • Maisie Williams: (on reading the boos that Game of Thrones are based on) I haven't read the books, partly because they're very graphic and also, they're really heavy and I'm not the strongest reader. But my mom has told me all about the story. She's just going through book two again now to see what happens to Arya {Maisie's character}, since season two has been greenlit.

    • Maisie Williams: (on dancing compared to acting) I've never really done acting before, cause dancing was my first love. And then, I sort of fell into it from a talent competition and never really looked back. Doing the sword fighting is like picking up a dance routine... I think dancing really helps with the picking up of it.

    • Maisie Williams: (on the beheading of her tv character's father) Filming it, it was a long day, but I think it definitely paid off and there was a lot of different angles. But they were all needed. Every single angle was needed, and every single angle was used. It was a great experience to see how it was done.

    • Maisie Williams: (on future goals) There are a couple of acting things going on at the moment but nothing definite yet. My aims at the moment are to get through school, knuckle down and get good grades then maybe go to a stage school for 6th form then move to London because I want to be in the centre of things and I love London! Then, who knows?!

    • Maisie Williams: (on her character Arya) She's feisty, a bit of a rebel, a tomboy, she is also quite brave and quick thinking, she wants to be listened too but sees everything very black and white...bit like me really!
