When HBO first brought us the fantasy drama series Game of Thrones, there were a lot of relatively unknown stars in some big roles, changing their lives forever and making them household names around the world. One such star in the talented young actress Maisie Williams, who plays the role of Arya Stark in Game of Thrones and has enjoyed the rise her career has enjoyed.
It has been made very public that Game of Thrones is going to come to an end in 2018, so it is interesting to see what will happen to the likes of Maisie Williams and the rest of the cast. Maisie has now been talking about coming to terms with the end of Game of Thrones, admitting that she is looking forward to the new challenges she will face in the future.
Williams was chatting to Entertainment Tonight, when she told them, "It has been my security blanket and it's been a safety net. If I haven't worked, or if I haven't landed a role, I never beat myself up too much, because I've always got 'Game of Thrones'. To not have that around is going to be really strange, but it's also really exciting."
She added, "It means I can now shape my career and I'm not tied down to anything, and I can really make bold decisions. I'm just trying to do the last few scenes that I have justice. I'm just trying to shape Arya the way that I have been so far, and give her a nice arc to end with, and hope the people are happy with it."
We cannot wait to see what Game of Thrones season 7 has to offer.
