We’re all grappling with the same problem right now — what are we supposed to do with our lives while we wait for the final season of Game of Thrones to come out next year?
While you’re waiting, one thing you could do is geek out over this nugget of information that Maisie Williams revealed in a recent interview — specifically, that she gets to keep a little bit of Arya Stark for herself after the show ends.
During an interview on Nick Grimshaw’s BBC Radio 1’s Breakfast show, Williams admitted that she “bawled” when the show finished shooting, and that it felt like “cutting an arm off” to leave Westeros behind.
“It’s been almost a decade,” said Williams. “I grew up with these people.”
However, she was happy to announce that she got to keep a pretty cool piece of Arya Stark memorabilia for herself. Namely the signature brown jacket.
“Oh, I was on this show once upon a time and this was the jacket I wore'”
“I can imagine it being something that I’m like, ‘Oh, I was on this show once upon a time and this was the jacket I wore’,” she said. “And my grandkids being like, ‘Please stop'”.
It’s not her only Game of Thrones memento. Williams got a tattoo earlier this year, paying tribute to her badass character Arya and marking the end of her time filming.
Williams also shared that her own experience of waiting for season two of Big Little Lies has made her understand how people feel waiting for the final season of Game of Thrones.
“Hurry up!” she said after declaring her love for the show.
We’ll second that, Maisie!
