Maisie Williams on GoT survival rates

Maisie Williams has revealed she bribes Game of Thrones producers with coffee in a bid to avoid her character Arya Stark being killed off from the show.

The 18-year-old actress plays Arya Stark in the hit US TV series. And while her half-brother in the programme, Kit Harington’s character Jon Snow, was recently written out of the show, Maisie admits she does everything in her power to convince producers on the series that she’s a vital cog in its machine.

“I try and just be nice and hope that they don't kill me, but we never really know... so I just stay quiet, and smile, and bring them coffees,” Maisie said during an interview with Extra on Friday.

Maisie is set to return to Game of Thrones in two weeks time to start shooting season six of the show.

The last series saw Arya hit with a sudden case of blindness. And while Maisie has yet to see a script for the upcoming episodes, she believes the storyline is set to continue.

“I don't know what's going to happen, where this blindness is going to go,” she said. “Hopefully it's a positive outcome, but as we know, Game of Thrones, takes a lot of twists and turns.”

Maisie also took the opportunity to discuss a potential surprise return to the show for Jon.

Dedicated Game of Thrones’ fans were quick to speculate that Jon’s demise might not be permanent when Kit was seen at the Wimbledon tennis tournament still sporting his alter-ego’s famous wavy mane.

Kit previously revealed that he was contractually obliged not to cut his locks while starring as Jon.

However, Maisie insisted she doesn’t believe a Jon Snow comeback will be taking place in the upcoming season.

“I think people are just trying to be hopeful, but… I mean, you saw him get stabbed… a lot,” she said.
