Anyone who has been keeping up with Game of Thrones knows Arya Stark is not someone you want to mess with.
Well if 17-year-old British actress Maisie Williams, who plays the pint sized killer, is anything like her character, the fight for global gay marriage has a worthy new warrior.
Asked recently by a fan what she’d ask for if given three wishes, she replied:
“From [my] perspective, if I could have three wishes I’d wish for happiness for me, my family and everyone I care about, I’d solve world hunger and make gay marriage legal everywhere.”
We have to assume that would include King’s Landing.
But even though universal gay marriage makes her list of top three desires, don’t expect to see a wedding ring on her finger any time soon.
“Right now, my view on marriage is that it’s extremely pointless. I see why other people get married. But for me, I’ll never get married, so I always do designs on my wedding ring fingers because I’ll never wear a finger there.”
A little naive? Perhaps, but then isn’t that what being 17 is all about? Glad to know her heart’s in the right place.
Her comments must also ring a nice chord with fellow GoT actor Kristian Nairn, who recently came out.
We’re looking forward to seeing more of Arya and Maisie, both in the current season where Arya continues to be a total badass, and in future projects.
Arya may be all business, but Maisie has some seriously underutilized comedic chops, as evidenced by her Vine account.
In particular, this perfect response she posted after the highly controversial “Red Wedding” episode:
