Slow claps for not breaking.
Game of Thrones - S2x05 - “The Ghost of Harrenhal”
All of Maisie’s facial expressions were gold tonight. She says so much without saying anything. To be a match for Charles Dance at her age is amazing.
“Hey, hey, hey, hey! What are you doing with that on?”
- Arya: …I bet you never killed anyone. I bet you’re a liar. But I’m not, I’m good at killing fat boys. I like killing fat boys.
- Gendry: Oh you like picking on little ones, do ya? You know I’ve been hammering an anvil these past 10 years. When I hit that steel it sings. Are you going to sing when I hit you?
To the beginning of another awesome friendship between a Stark and a Baratheon.
“When Mum was reading the first book, she told me about Arya being left-handed. From then on, I was like, ‘Aright, I’m going to try to do everything left-handed’. When I was practising out in the garden and things I would do left-handed just to feel that rhythm. Unfortunately, when it came to filming, sometimes I have to do things right-handed because of the camera angle and things like that. So some people are a bit annoyed that Arya hasn’t done everything left-handed. I wanted to. I really did. But sometimes it was just too tricky and we couldn’t do it”.
I’m left-handed and I can’t imagine throwing a ball right handed let alone sword fighting. Score one for HBIC, Maisie Williams aka Arya Stark.
