Maisie Williams Adds Tom Hanks To Arya Stark’s Kill List On ‘The Graham Norton Show’

Tom Hanks had better watch his back, as he has been added to Arya Stark’s Kill List. 

While the Oscar-winning actor may not be in ‘Game Of Thrones’, he became a surprise addition to the fatal list after appearing on ‘The Graham Norton Show’ alongside ‘GOT’ star Maisie Williams. 

During the interview, Graham revealed that Maisie often gets requests from fans of the fantasy series for her to recite the list with their names added to the end – something which she then did for Tom, and indeed Graham and fellow guest Anthony Joshua. 

Hopefully though, the trio will not meet the same fate as Walder Frey and Meryn Trant did.

Watch the video above to see how it played out…

While on the show, Maisie also dropped some hints about the final series of ‘Game Of Thrones’, which will not air until 2019. 

“We’re still making it,” she said. “It is so much fun now there is only a small group of us left and it’s exciting to know everything that is going on.”

‘The Graham Norton Show’ airs Fridays at 10.35pm on BBC One.

Please enjoy Arya and Brienne training for their ‘Game of Thrones’ fight like badasses

It was one of the highlights of an uneven season 7: Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) returning to Winterfell and showcasing her mad sword skills by sparring with Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie).

But it didn’t go down the way you think. For one thing, that wasn’t Maisie doing an incredible acrobatic leap from her back, even though CGI fooled you into thinking it was.

Now that HBO’s behind-the-scenes video series The Game Revealed has reached Season 7 episode 4, we have this breakdown of the Brienne-Arya choreography — which is well worth a watch.    Read more…

‘Game of Thrones’ fan proves who the REAL worst character in the show is

Warning: Contains spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7.

When someone mentions the biggest villain in Game of Thrones, who do you think of?

Joffrey? Cersei? Euron? Ramsey? 

Well, forget all those. They’re all wrong.

The real biggest villain isn’t really a villain at all, at least in the traditional sense. He’s just a simple man who likes his pies hot, and who may have accidentally caused the downfall of Westeros.

Littlefinger’s fatal flaw in ‘Game of Thrones’ was underestimating women

Warning: This post contains spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7, episode 7, titled “The Dragon and the Wolf.”

Well, he had it coming.

To the sadness of no one, Petyr Baelish, Master of Mustache Twirling for House Stark, is finally six-feet-under. Long may he rot.

You probably joined us in lifting your wine glasses and crying out “THE QUEENS IN THE NORTH” during the season finale’s double (triple?) crossing scene. Finally, we not only saw the Starks truly reunited again, but also the raw power of sisterhood after a man tries to undermine it.

Spoiler alert: it ends with his blood congealing on the cold, hard floor beneath their feet. Read more…

Arya Stark’s storyline this season has been downright infuriating – and that’s what’s great about it

Two episodes ago, the Stark sisters reunion finally came to pass when Arya showed up at Winterfell. There were hugs and smiles and bittersweet conversations reminiscing about better times. If it wasn’t everything we wanted, it was, at least, a promising start.

Then, this week, things got awkward. And sinister.

In Sunday’s episode, Arya confronted Sansa with a note she’d found in Littlefinger’s room – a letter that the elder Stark had written under duress from the Lannisters back in Season 1. Sansa tried to explain that she was just a scared, confused child who didn’t see any other choice, but Arya wasn’t having it.  Read more…

‘Game of Thrones’ fans have a huge theory about Arya’s endgame

Warning: Contains stealthy spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7, episode 6.

Arya had so much potential for Season 7. Literally five minutes into the season she’d managed to wipe out the entire Frey family, and it looked like she was all set to start crossing the big hitters off her list nice and early.

Flash forward to episode 6, though, and it still hasn’t happened. Now it looks like she’s more likely to come to blows with her own sister than dispatch Cersei.

Then again, maybe not. Now that the dust has settled after Sunday’s episode, more fans have been putting forward evidence for the same theory: that Arya is playing a much smarter game than anyone is giving her credit for. Read more…

Arya’s new Valyrian steel dagger is even more interesting than we thought

Fair warning: This post contains spoilers for all of Game of Thrones books and episodes.

It’s excellent advice for lawyers and omniscient stoners in fantasy series: Don’t ask a question you don’t already know the answer to. 

Arya Stark was handed a shiny, deadly new toy in episode 4 of Game of Thrones last weekend: A Valyrian steel dagger. She was given it by her brother Bran, who not long before had been handed it by resident slimeball Littlefinger.

The dagger was used by a cutthroat who tried to murder Bran in Season 1, and as Littlefinger points out, in a very real way it started the War of the Five Kings. After fighting off the assassin, Catelyn Stark took the dagger to Kings Landing because she suspected the Lannisters were behind the attempt on Bran’s life.  Read more…

Your favorite ‘Game of Thrones’ character is finally cool again

During the innocent, sweet summer dawn of Game of Thrones, Arya Stark was an almost immediate fan favorite. Raised a lady but dying to be a soldier, Arya was one of the first to stand up to human garbage Joffrey Baratheon (the other being another fave, his uncle Tyrion) and to reject the obnoxious patriarchy of Westeros.

The years drew on and while Arya remained a hero to rabid Thrones fans, her storylines rarely lived up to her potential. Now that she’s back in Winterfell, that dry spell may be over.

SEE ALSO: Tyrion Lannister just showed why he’s a fan favorite on ‘Game of Thrones’

One of the early draws of Arya as a popular character was her interest in battle, from archery to sword fighting — dancing, as she and master Syrio Forel called it. She was quickly parted from her dance teacher and set on a winding, often tedious journey away from King’s Landing. Highlights included meeting Jaqen H’gar and the Brotherhood without Banners in between verbal sparring with Gendry and baking bread or whatever with Hot Pie.  Read more…

Arya now has a Valyrian steel weapon, but where did it come from?

Spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7, episode four follow. Don’t act like you haven’t been warned. That would embarrass everyone. 

Well, that wonderful episode gave us many, many things, but it also gave Arya a Valyrian steel dagger. 

Littlefinger, in his smarmy way, tried to bond with the newly-returned, newly-creepy Bran by giving him a very special dagger. Bran saw right through the twerp’s greasy smile (“Chaos is a ladder.”), but had no real need of the knife. So, he gave it to Arya in the midst of that very touching Stark family underneath the red leaves of the weirwood tree.

But where did it come from and what does it mean? Read more…
