The growth of Arya Stark from innocent child to full-grown bloodthirsty assassin is one of the highlights of “Game of Thrones.” The cast became a family to Maisie Williams, who basically grew up on the show, and she even maintains a group chat with everyone (via Variety). Of the entire “Game of Thrones” cast, from what we can tell, it seems like Willaims is the most likely to actually watch “House of the Dragon” in its entirety.
In that same interview, Williams was asked if she planned on watching “House of the Dragon,” to which she responded with an enthusiastic “yes.” As it turns out, Williams is close friends with Olivia Cooke, one of the show’s stars. She mentioned that in talks with Cooke, it sounded like a lot of pressure to work under.
“All of the hung-over concerns of our show are now just being piled onto this new cast of people who had nothing to do with it,” Williams said. “I want to be as supportive as possible to her as an actress, but also, I’m just really curious. I’m kind of looking forward to watching ‘Game of Thrones’ — even though it’s not ‘Game of Thrones’ — and experiencing it as a person that’s not on it.”
