Maisie Williams on GoT Season 6 & Understanding Feminism

The 'Game of Thrones' actress has revealed how she feels about the new season of the show and how she has come to understand feminism thanks to her role.

 

The show just had its world premiere for the 6th season and everyone is excited to see where the show is going. Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, explains that she has been excited to see how people react because she thinks fans will both love and hate the direction of the story:

“Every year I think, “This is really cool.” But this year, as I opened the scripts, it’s so exciting because nobody knows what’s happening. They’re going to hate it, but love it, and I can’t wait….they don’t know what’s going to happen. I know the showrunners don’t take [criticism] personally any more and that’s nice. People are outraged by last season, but they secretly love it too – because they don’t know what’s really going on.”

Maisie also explains that she has learnt about feminism through her role in the show because she was often asked if her character is a feminist even from the age of 12, and so she has learnt what that means and how it translates into real life too:

“I got asked in one of my first interviews: “Is Arya a feminist?” [I was 12 and] I didn’t even know what a feminist was….And then someone explained it to me. And I remember thinking, “Isn’t that just like everyone?” And then I realized everyone is not a feminist, unfortunately. But I also feel like we should stop calling feminists “feminists” and just start calling people who aren’t feminist “sexist” – and then everyone else is just a human. You are either a normal person or a sexist. People get a label when they’re bad. Because it works the other way, as well. A lot of men have it hard too.”
