Maisie Williams's Funny or Die Twitter takeover

Posted on

Though the King in the North is dead, there’s still one Stark capable of seizing control from the powers that be: Arya, also known as 16-year-old actress Maisie Williams. On Monday evening, the pint-size killer officially took over Funny or Die’s Twitter feed. This initial picture of her is a perfect lesson in how to look intimidating while staging a coup:


So far, Williams’ tweets can be divided into two main categories. The first is as a quirky-cool teen who loves Emma Stone (“she’s hilarrrrrrrr”) and crushes on Andrew Garfield; has a pet tortoise named Barney who’s “quite simple”; would love to dance in a Beyoncé music video; and hopes to someday experience the on-set pranks pulled by fellow Thrones star Conleth Hill (a.k.a. Lord Varys).

As for the second? Well, let’s just say Arya’s violent tendencies may have warped Maisie just a smidge.





Then again, maybe she’s realized the error of her ways — and will spend her hiatus petting puppies and learning how to knit or something.
