Warning: Major spoilers ahead for the Season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones! Read at your own risk…
Game of Thrones kicked off an epic and memorable season 7 premiere, and one of the biggest moments was the opening when Arya slaughtered pretty much the entirety of House Frey.
Now, Maisie Williams, who plays Arya, is opening up about the scene.
As reported by Entertainment Weekly, when Willaims was asked about that moment from the show, she said, “It’s so f—ed up!” Williams said, “Even Arya is surprised she has so much power. In that last moment she’s staring out at all those men dying, she’s turned into a bit more of a monster than she’s ever realized. I don’t think she’s sad about that but she’s got it on her mind.”
She also talked about her character’s journey foreshadowing the turn of events by saying, “When I heard first heard about the Faceless Men, I always thought it would be really cool if she switched faces with a leading character rather than an unknown person’s face. I really hope [viewers] don’t guess it’s her straight away.”
Lastly, Williams said, “I’ve always had this fantasy in the back of my head — I don’t think it’s a good ending and fans might not like it — but that somebody would sit on the Iron Throne at the end and then they whip their face off and it’s Arya instead. I’ve always had that dream.”
