In her first Reddit AMA, Maisie Williams answered questions about her favorite kind of peanut butter (crunchy), misheard Taylor Swift lyrics (“Something-something-Starbucks-lovers”), and who she would want to play on Game of Thrones if she wasn’t Arya (Cersei, of course). One answer, however, has left fans with more questions about season 5.
During the AMA, a fan asked Williams what was the most difficult scene for her to film for Game of Thrones, and she answered that it was a scene that no one has seen yet.
“There’s actually a scene in the coming season… which was my most difficult scene to film. And I think fans are going to be really excited about it. More emotional than we’ve seen Arya in previous seasons.”
Book readers might have an idea what Williams is hinting at after Arya left Westeros in the season 4 finale, but considering how much the show is diverging from the source material, it could be anyone’s guess.
Williams also addressed speculation that she would be playing Ellie in the film adaptation of The Last of Us, and her answer was to simply “wait and see.”
“THE LAST OF US movie is in very early days. I have spoken to powerful people who are getting THE LAST OF US on its feet. And I’m hopeful that I can play Ellie in the future, but we’ll all have to wait and see.”

“My sigil would be a tortoise, and my saying would be ‘Go hard or go home’ because your shell is hard, and it’s also your home, so…”
