Game of Thrones: Maisie Williams pranks fans at gaming store
Maisie Williams’ Arya Stark may be a disciple of the appearance-shifting assassins known as the Faceless Men on Game of Thrones, but her own visage is pretty much unmistakable for fans of the hit HBO series — even in unexpected places.
In a hidden-camera video for Nylon magazine (the May cover of which Williams graces), the English actress pranks unsuspecting fans by pretending to be an ordinary shop clerk at Aero Hobbies, gaming store in the Los Angeles area.
Masquerading as “Lorraine” while sporting a gray T-shirt and unseen earpiece, Williams nonchalantly hands out free Game of Thrones swag to customers, who alternately squeal in delight, reenact scenes from the show, and try to get her to break character.
“You’re 100 percent Game of Thrones,” one customer insists.
“I get this all the time,” Williams maintains. “It’s kind of really awkward.”
Watch the video, which contains some brief NSFW language, below.
