Maisie Williams gets new 'Game of Thrones' tattoo and fans are obsessed
Although it may still seem far away, the end of Game of Thrones is nigh - and for the cast, it's pretty much over already. Although the stars have still got the season eight premiere party to look forward to - and they're bound to do interview after interview discussing their character's fates - filming on the show has officially wrapped, meaning they will never play their roles again.
Kind of depressing to think of it that way, isn't it? Don't worry, though, many of the Game of Thrones stars have commemorated their time on the hit fantasy series with tattoos, the most recent of them being Maisie Williams.
Yesterday, Maisie took to Instagram to share her new ink with her 7.8 million followers, with the marking honouring her beloved character Arya Stark. Found between her shoulder blades, the tattoo reads "No One." and is a reference to the training Arya received under the aegis of Jaqen H’ghar.
After having the work done at Bang Bang NYC - a favourite haunt for celebrities including Rihanna, Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus - the 21-year-old shared five pictures on social media showing off two other tattoos she had gotten and captioned the series: "? all the loooove ? thank you @mr.k_tattoo ?".
It's not the first inking the actress has gotten in honour of her role on the show. In 2016, she and her on-screen sister, off-screen best friend, Sophie Turner, got matching "07.08.09" markings on their forearms in honour of the date they both found out they had been cast in the show.
Sophie, who plays Sansa, recently got another tattoo inspired by the show, a dire wolf with the phrase, “The pack survives” inscribed below it. However, unfortunately for the actress, rather than thrilling fans, it left them seething, as they suspected she had leaked the season eight ending, implying that the Stark family survived in the end.
Speaking to Digital Spy afterwards, the 22-year-old admitted that the inking was "probably not a good idea", but firmly denied she had ruined any storylines. She told them: "A few years ago, I dyed my hair blonde for another role that I was doing. Everyone thought I was a Targaryen all of a sudden. So they’ve used a couple of the slightest things [to form fan theories]. But it’s actually really exciting.
"Game of Thrones is all about theories. So the more we can conjure up, the better it is. The more exciting it makes it, the more unpredictable it makes it. But yeah, definitely that tattoo was probably not a good idea, because everyone thought that I’d given away the end. But I haven’t. It’s a quote from last season. That would be terrible, if I got the ending tattooed on my body, just before the last season came out. That would be so stupid."
The young star has admitted, however, that the final season of Game Of Thrones is set to have "more death than all the years before", telling Gold Derby: "There’s a lot of tension between these little groups, battling for what they think is right. It’s Game of Thrones, so it’s going to be bloodier and more death and more emotionally torturous than all the years before!"
More emotionally torturous than ever before? We can barely wait.
