Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams has over a year before HBO’s smash adaptation ends, but she’s already planning on her post-Arya Stark years. While promoting Early Man, which features her debut voice acting role, Williams revealed what she’d like to do after GoT.
After doing this and really working on my voice I would love to do theatre. It would be wonderful to constantly stay inside my comfort zone but I think I owe it to myself just keep pushing myself and wanting to do more different things and new and exciting things.
She is an actress, so the idea of performing in theater is, you know, not surprising. Still, it does make theater fans wonder who Williams could play. Maybe Viola from Twelfth Night? Stella from A Streetcar Named Desire? Nora from A Doll’s House?
Arya Stark is a slippery character, and Williams has had to wear several hats (or faces) in her time on GoT. Though she’s trying to get out of her comfort zone, I’d say Arya has given her plenty of room to try new things out. Every season she seems to be the most recognizably different than pretty much any other character on the show. As others change incrementally, Arya has a proper transformation every season.
Whatever the future holds for Maisie Williams after GoT, at the moment, I really only care to see how Arya’s arc ends. And will it be different from what George R. R. Martin has planned? Only (a lot of) time will tell.
