Game of Thrones Star, ‘Arya Stark’ Mesmerized by Lupita

April 16, 2015

gotShe is one of the most beloved characters on Game of Thrones. She plays Arya Stark, a fiercely independent, brave girl who is often mistaken for a boy.
Arya, real name Maisie Williams is the latest star to catch some Lupita fever. In an interview with Dazed, Maisie described what it was like meeting the Kenyan actress at the Golden Globes.
“I saw Lupita Nyong’o at a Golden Globes after-party last year,” recalled Williams.
“I went over and was like, ‘I respect massively what you’ve done.’ She said thanks and was very gracious. And then at the bar later on, she came over and was like, ‘I’ve just realised who you are! It sounds stupid, but I’ve learned so much from you. I watch Game of Thrones all the time, and honestly, being so new myself in this industry, I was just watching people who had done the same sort of thing.”
Asked what drew Nyong’o to Williams’ character, she responded: “I think it was just the strong women in film and television thing.”
“They aren’t written enough. Yeah, I think that was something she liked.”
