Say you run into "Game of Thrones" star Maisie Williams at a fan convention, or even a coffee shop in London. What, if anything, would you say to the actress who plays Arya Stark?
Maisie was just on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" to promote the return of GoT on April 24, and it turns out fans ask her two main things:
1) What's going on with Jon Snow? (EYE ROLL)
2) Can you read Arya's kill list into my phone, and add my name?
If we were Maisie, we'd be most annoyed by the Jon Snow questions since, as she put it, "What about Arya, right? I'm like, no one wants to hear about Jon Snow, there's loads of other really exciting storylines that are going on on the show." Hint, hint. Seth said he hopes Kit Harington (who plays Jon Snow) gets questions about Arya when he walks down the street. (But probably not.)
Toward the end of the video -- after Maisie talks about her painful contact lenses for blind Arya, and Arya's unfortunate wardrobe on the show -- Maisie explains that weird request she gets from fans to read off Arya's list of people she wants to kill, but adding the fan's own name.
"It's always the most awkward thing, if it wasn't awkward enough, 'cause I've got to be like, 'Joffrey, Cersei...' -- like medieval names -- and then, like, '...Brian.' And somehow it doesn't seem to work as well."
As some other fans have noted, it's surprising more people don't ask her to say, "Oysters, clams, and cockles!" or "Valar morghulis."
FYI, it sounds like Arya may have a smaller role in Season 6. As she noted to Seth during their talk about this year being the first post-book season, "I feel like I'm not in it quite as much but my story flows a lot nicer than it has in previous years." Hmmm. There are a lot of storylines to balance, but that's kind of disappointing. Hopefully they didn't cut Arya's scenes to make room for more Jon Snow stuff. He's not the only character, you know!
