MAISIE Williams has promised the final series of Game of Thrones will be “incredible” for the female characters.
The 21-year-old actress – who plays teenage assassin Arya Stark in the HBO fantasy drama – insists accusations of misogyny levelled against the show are unfounded because as the series has progressed, the female characters have grown stronger and found themselves in positions of power.
She said, “For me, Game of Thrones is a medieval world in which women don’t have a lot of rights yet they still prevail.
“But I do think that as the seasons have gone on, it’s become more and more amazing for women. And this final season is going to be incredible.
“It just feels great, being on set with all these girls.
“They’re all ruling, you know, they’re all back on top – it’s pretty impressive.”
And Maisie suggested her alter ego will survive until the end of the show.
She told Britain’s ELLE magazine: “Season one to eight, that’s what I wanted. I was in the first episode and I want to be in the last.” – BANG!
