It’s apparently a great honor to be included on Arya Stark’s kill list from Game of Thrones. So, actress Maisie Williams added Tom Hanks and Graham Norton to the batch.
“A lot of people come up to me in the street and they want me to recite the names but then add their name,” Williams, 20, divulged on The Graham Norton Show. It’s a fan request she finds to be “a little odd.”
As she then recited for the television audience, Norton and his guests Hanks and Anthony Joshua have also joined Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, The Mountain, Beric Dondarrion, Thoros of Myr, and The Red Woman.
“Please kill me!” Norton joked.
This list has changed over the seasons as various characters got both the proverbial and literal axes. The six-episode final season of Game of Thrones won’t premiere till 2019, so we’ll have to wait to see if Arya scratches more names off her list.
“Here’s what I’ll tell you: They take the time they need to do the show at its highest level of quality,” HBO programming boss Casey Bloys told EW of the long winter ahead of fans till the premiere. “As the show has gone on, it’s gotten bigger — big battle scenes, big special effects. These things take time. Here’s the one thing I can assure you: [showrunners] Dan [Weiss] and Dave [Benioff] were not sitting around on a beach waiting to go back to work. They’re perfectionists and this is the soonest it can come back at a level of quality that they are comfortable with.”
Maisie Williams Chose to Dress Like Coraline Instead of Attending Golden Globes
Awards shows are an opportunity for celebrities to dress up, see peers, and receive accolades. But Maisie Williams skipped all of that by not attending the Golden Globes on Sunday in favor of something way cooler: she dressed like Coraline Jones. The character introduced in Neil Gaiman‘s novella Coraline was brought to life in the 2009 stop-motion film of the same name directed and written by Henry Selick. In the movie, Coraline has an instantly recognizable look with blue hair and a yellow rain coat, and via Hello Giggles, we can see Williams captured it perfectly with her costume. Oliver Jackson takes on the role of Coraline’s BFF, Wyborne “Wybie” Lovat, in the image.
It’s ridiculously cute. And hey, the raincoat and wig are probably way more comfortable than a swanky evening gown and heels. I hope Williams has Coraline’s bright yellow rain boots to complete the look.
Focus Features and LAIKA’s stop-motion adaptation of Coraline is a lovely piece of work, but I’m just saying, a live action take on Gaiman’s story could work. And Williams does point out that Coraline, a sassy and curious young girl, is her idol. It could happen.
Which fictional character penned by Neil Gaiman should Williams dress up as next? My money’s on Death from Sandman. Share your picks in the comments.
