Maisie Williams On Why She Felt Devastated While Rewatching ‘Game Of Thrones’

She said it was difficult and she felt very upset about some parts of the story.

During a recent appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,’ Maisie Williams shared how she felt after a rewatch of ‘Game of Thrones,’ saying it made her feel rather devastated.

Upon rewatching ‘Game of Thrones’ in light of the release of ‘House of the Dragon,’ Williams admitted it wasn’t that easy for her:

“I rewatched it. It was really a challenge. [Laughter] Yeah, so obviously ‘House of the Dragon’ came back, and I think, like a lot of people, I was like, ‘Let me sit down and watch ‘Game of Thrones’ again.'”

Although Fallon told her ‘she was the Game of Thrones,’ the actress said rewatching the series was what finally gave her a perspective:

“I don’t know, I just feel like when it was coming out, I was not even really sentient yet. So I sat down and watched the whole thing, and finally, now I feel like I have perspective on it.”

She then revealed her feelings about the show, saying:

“I mean, I was devastated when Ned died. [Laughter] I just was like, ‘I can’t believe that they did that.'”

During the chat with Fallon, Williams also discussed other topics, including her first Super Bowl experience, the Barbie discussion on her Frank Film Club podcast, and her role as Catherine Dior in ‘The New Look.’ You can watch the video below.

Williams Felt Resentment Toward Arya

Throughout GoT’s eight-year run, Williams’ relationship with her character went through a transformation. As the series progressed and Williams matured, she found herself struggling with feelings of resentment towards Arya. Speaking to GQ UK, she said:

“I think that when I started becoming a woman, I resented Arya because I couldn’t express who I was becoming.”

This feeling extended to her physical appearance, as the production took measures to keep Arya’s look. Elaborating on this experience, she continued:

“And then I also resented my body because it wasn’t aligned with the piece of me that the world celebrated.”

Despite these, Williams said that she harbors no desire to return to her GoT days:

“I don’t think it’s healthy [to miss it] because I loved it. I look at it so fondly and with such pride. But why would I want to make myself feel sad about the greatest thing that ever happened to me? I don’t want to associate that with feelings of pain.”

In 2020, Williams also expressed her own opinion about Arya’s storyline, revealing that she wished Arya had killed Cersei Lannister. Reflecting on the show’s conclusion, Williams noted she’s satisfied with Arya’s arc, especially the surprise twist of her defeating the Night King.
