A lot is expected of Arya in “Game of Thrones” Season 7, especially when it comes to the Starks finally getting the revenge they have always wanted. However, Maisie Williams is concerned about the future of her character, given the dark turn she took in the previous season.

[Spoiler alert]

Arya (Maisie Williams) finally got the revenge for the Red Wedding in the previous season after she killed Walder Frey (David Bradley). In an interview with Variety, Williams said that everyone must be thrilled with the death. All the crew members apparently told the actress that she had the “best kill” on the show ever.

But the actress said that she is also worried about her character after the events of the previous season. She echoed the sentiments of fellow cast member Kit Harington (Jon Snow), who had previously said that it is worrying when the heroes take it too far and actually enjoy it.

Williams pointed out that Arya, despite her killing prowess, is just a little girl. So, every time her character does something like smile after a kill; she can’t help but think about how long the character has been planning this and what she is really thinking.

The Starks have been suffering right from the first season. Williams hopes that the Starks finally get their revenge now, but also teased that by the end of it all the killings will leave the characters “a little messed up.” She hopes the Stark children remain sane and “stay on the straight and narrow.”

Talking about the possible Stark children’s reunion in “Game of Thrones” Season 7, Williams said that her character would be surprised to learn how bad things have been for the other Stark children too. Although the reunion would be a happy occasion, the actress said that Arya would also be sad about the fact that the siblings have all changed and they have lost their chance to have more “naïve, childish fun.”
