Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams reveals the Westeros villain she wishes Arya had murdered in divisive final season

GAME of Thrones actress has revealed which Westeros villain she wishes her character had killed off in the hit HBO show.

Despite the series coming to an epic end in 2019, Maisie is still pondering about what could have been.

The 23-year-old actress played the role of Arya Stark, who murdered a fair few characters in the show – including the frightening Night King.

In the upcoming book, Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon: Game of Thrones and the Official Untold Story of the Epic Series, from Entertainment Weekly’s James Hibberd, Maisie touched upon her time in the TV show.

Revealing her one regret, she said: "I wanted her to kill Cersei, even if it meant [Arya] dies.

"Even up to the point where she’s with Jaime, I thought he’s going to whip off his face [and be revealed as Arya], and they were both going to die.

"I thought that’s what Arya’s drive had been," Maisie added.

Cersei (played by Lena Headey) did meet a grisly end in the final season alongside her twin brother – and lover – Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) as King's Landing collapsed around them.

But although Ayra wasn't the one to kill them, she did defeat the Night King in probably one of the most epic scenes television has ever seen.

It was always believed that that Maisie's onscreen brother Jon Snow (Kit Harington) would be the one to kill the icy villain though.

"[Kit Harrington] expected it to go [Jon Snow’s] way, too, and he even said, 'It was going to go that way. Someone told me in season three that I was going to kill the Night King'," Maisie told the Hollywood Reporter recently.

"And then, he read the script, and it was Arya the whole time," she added.

"Yeah, I think it would’ve been too obvious. I’m glad that it was Arya, honestly. I think I had the best storyline of the final season."

Arya shocked everyone when she jumped over the hordes and used her sword to stab The Night King through the heart during the Battle of Winterfell.

In what many felt as an anticlimactic ending to the White Walkers’ threat to Westeros, it cleared the way for dragon queen Daenerys Targaryen.
