Maisie Williams Doesn't Want You to Like Arya on 'Game of Thrones'

Maisie Williams hits the carpet at the Game of Thrones Epic Fan Experience held at the Barclays Center on Friday (March 21) in Brooklyn, N.Y.

The 16-year-old actress recently chatted with Zap2It about how she doesn’t think her character Arya deserves fans to be rooting for her.

“I don’t want people to like her anymore, almost. That sounds really, really bad,” Maisie said. “I want people to realize that actually she’s not the same anymore. You can’t root for her forever, because she’s not there to be your favorite character. That’s not what she’s there for. She’s real. People go down bad paths and they make bad decisions, but it’s always justified in their head. I want the audience to differentiate that and not just be like, ‘Oh, it’s Arya, we love her.’ Because actually look at what Arya’s doing. She’s being eaten away from the inside out, and she’s not stopping it.”
