Now that we're deep in the month of April, a.k.a. the month Game of Thrones makes its glorious return to HBO, the Jon Snow chatter is more prevalent than ever. People have questions. Some people think they have answers. Some people simply don't care. For Thrones star Maisie Williams, there's a much bigger issue afoot than the questionable fate of Jon Snow.
"People ask me all the time," Williams, who plays Arya Stark, told Seth Meyers on Wednesday of constantly getting bombarded with Snow-related inquiries. "I'm just left wondering 'What about Arya?'" In fact, Williams insisted, "no one wants to hear about Jon Snow" anymore because there are "loads" of other cool stuff going down.
As for Arya's newly acquired blindness, Williams shot down rumors that the look was achieved with the assistance of CGI. "I read somewhere that they gave me the option between CGI and contact lenses, which isn't true at all," Williams said. "They just said contact lenses." Those lenses, according to Williams, were "really thick" and (predictably) "so painful."
For Maisie Williams, the most exciting aspect of Game of Thrones' sixth season is the fact that the series has finally surpassed George R.R. Martin's source material. "I think now we get the opportunity to shape the series from start to end without having to hit any plot points at certain moments," she told Meyers. "They have actually made it into a better-flowing series, in my opinion."
