In the recent San Diego Comic Convention, women in Hollywood has proved once again that they can dominate and kick *ss in a world full of men. Now an annual event, Women Who Kick *ss discussion panel talks about everything about women, from makeup and beauty secrets to stunt coordination advice to "what p*sses them off."
Actress Maisie Williams from the HBO series "Game of Thrones", arrives at the AFI Awards 2013 honoring excellence in film and television in Beverly Hills, California January 10, 2014.
There are six women who got the invites for this year's panel and they are the classic example of women who can stand on their own and still looking fabulous while doing. The panelists include "American Horror Story" Sarah Paulson, "Sleepy Hallow" Nicole Beharie, "Game of Thrones" Maisie Williams and Natalie Dormer, "Orphan Black" Tatiana Maslany and "Sons of Anarchy" matriarch Katey Sagal.
Returning to Hall H on Saturday, July 26, the empowered women of the small screen gathered together as they answer the questions from fans. Known for her role as the fiery Gemma Teller of the FX biker drama series, Sagal admitted that she's a little bit afraid every season. "It's just awesome to feel that way, and to feel challenged," she said in an interview posted on Entertainment Weekly.
"I had to do a scene yesterday that literally, in a page and a half, I had to go from A to Z, and I was like, 'I don't f-king know where this is.' And you're on the day, and it's television, and you have to get there quick. There's no, 'Come back tomorrow and try again," she added.
Best known for her role as Arya Stark, Williams is the youngest actress in the panel and wishes that she could do more stunts like riding a horse and not rely on her stunt double. Dormer who plays Margaery Tyrell revealed that she wanted to play Maisie's role as Arya and was very passionate about the topic on sexualization of women.
"I don't think that it's healthy for young girls to be looking at these beauty magazines and watching TV and these shows and thinking [that's the standard]... there's more European attitude -- you look at French film, Spanish film, they're a little more open to quirks and human nature. That we're not all symmetrical, not all the same shape... we need more of that," she revealed in an interview posted on Hit Fix.
Maslany also revealed that landing the role as Tony was a "privilege" and a "huge responsibility" for her. But she took it as a challenge where she used her fear and doubts to create one of the show's memorable character. Paulson who plays an 80-year-old woman in "American Horror Story" said that she's very "conscious of not doing it for caricature" and revealed that she didn't worry about being attractive to other people.
