English actress Maisie Williams is not afraid to say what she thinks or feels when it comes to certain issues like how she expressed frustration when she was denied access to the British Airways lounge because of her age. Recently, the 17-year-old "Game of Thrones" star slammed the "mean" and "snobby" readers of George RR Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" book series who keeps on spoiling the show for the other viewers.
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.
The young actress, who portrays Arya Stark in the HBO series, stated in the TV Line interview that she has become sick of seeing on the Internet the snobby book readers giving spoilers to the other viewers of show and then declaring that what was revealed was no really a spoiler because the books have already been out for years. Williams further pointed out that the book readers should just stop and let the other fans enjoy the TV series.
The actress admitted that she understands how the book readers have a claim on "Game of Thrones" because they were able to read the books first. "But they don't need to be mean about it," the actress declared.
Maisie William's criticism came after the fans recently gave their negative reactions to the show producer's decision of excluding (Spoiler alert!) Lady Stoneheart in "Game of Thrones" Season 5 despite the character's existence in the books. However, Williams revealed that she likes it when there are changes made in the HBO series just like what the producers did to Lady Stoneheart.
The actress explained that those who read the books think they know what will happen next. Williams find it amusing to watch the book readers' reaction when the team behind the HBO series decided to change something in it.
Williams continued that the book fans are expected to notice, react and say that the changes made did not happen in the books. "So the show's really bad now. But really, they just feel insecure because they're used to knowing what's coming next," Williams added.
When asked about what's in store for Arya Star in "Game of Thrones" Season 5, Maisie Williams assured the fans that the character is going to be just fine. According to the actress, Arya will now be sick of how people told her what to do and pulled her left and right.
"She knows this world, she knows who to trust and she's ready to go off on her own," Williams revealed in the TVLine interview. According to the Mary Sue report, the young actress teased in a separate interview that her character is capable of forgiving but not forgetting.
"We'll see a lot more of the revenge that she takes on people who have hurt her in the coming season," Williams teased. "Game of Thrones" Season 5 filming is currently underway with airing schedule of the new episodes expected to take place in spring 2015.
