Game Of Thrones star Maisie Williams has admitted she doesn’t think anyone will be satisfied when the show finally ends.
Williams, 21, who has grown up playing Arya Stark, told Sky News that fans just don’t want it to end but for her “it’s the right time” for it to finish.
“I don’t think anyone is going to be satisfied [when it ends]. I don’t think anyone wants it to end but I’m really proud of this final season,” she said.
Williams admitted: “It’s going to be really weird when it’s done and every day it’s a step closer to it not being a part of my life anymore.”
She said she hoped to be invited to any party thrown by co-star Kit Harington, after he told Sky News he was considering an event to mark the end, but said that instead it would “probably be me and my flat mates, and he’s going to say ‘well done’, and I’m going to go ‘thanks, bedtime’.”
Williams spoke to students at Birmingham University about her new app, Daisie, which is “a platform for artists to be able to discover one another and collaborate with up-and-coming projects they may have”.
Williams wants the app to make it easier for young people to break into an “industry that’s so fickle” and which doesn’t reward talent fairly.
“As an actor I reap all the benefits from Game of Thrones, I didn’t write any of it, I’m not HBO, I’m just one actor,” she said.
The actress turned tech entrepreneur says she hopes her app can make a difference, adding: “If we can help people to connect with like-minded people when they’re on their way up, it’s a way of handing out the credit of what collaboration really is.”
The actor gave an hour-long talk in front of students from the faculty of arts, design and media before being interviewed on the university’s new radio station. (Sky News)
