The eighth season of Game of Thrones is just around the corner and every day we get to hear such interesting stories about the show, that our wait for the finale season has become a long one. Case in point, Arya Stark aka Maisie Williams, she has been essaying the role of Arya Stark of Winterfell since the age of 14. Arya, is so amazing that even critics were bowled over. And we know we speak on your behalf too when we say that Arya Stark represents a major strength of Winterfell. Now would you believe if we say, the actress almost skipped audition for the now-most-popular character, Arya Stark? Yes, and the reason is so bizarre that it will leave you surprised.
According to an entertainment portal, Instyle, Maisie was about to practically skip the audition so that she could attend a field trip to a pig's farm! You heard it right. A Pig Farm! Well, we certainly are thankful to the stars (no pun intended) or the person who influenced Maisie to audition for the role. We, for one, cannot imagine anyone else as Arya, but for Maisie. Her character growth from season one has won over millions of fans, including the critics.
Here is some BTS straight from Maisie's social media handle:
Game of Thrones is one magnum opus that was a blockbuster hit with its first season itself. Initially, Maisie struggled with fame and also trolls, “I struggled with the pressure to fit in and always worried about saying the right thing,” she recalled. The actress further revealed that since her on-screen character was very different from her actual persona, she struggled to strike a balance between the two individuals “It was strange because I put on the personality of the girl who was ‘Maisie Williams’ but really struggled in my personal life.” But the support from her fans, ultimately, helped her to cope with everything. “I think just understanding I wasn’t the only one who feels like they don’t fit in really helped me,” she told to the online platform. “And it made me want to inform other young kids that it actually does get better,” she added.
The final season of Game of Thrones is all set to premiere coming weekend and our excitement has hit the roof!
