Don’t tell this to GRRM but Maisie Williams hasn’t read the Game of Thrones novels

Maisie Williams, best known for playing Arya Stark on the popular TV series Game of Thrones, says she has still not read the novels the fantasy drama is based on.
The HBO series is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, by George RR Martin, reported Deadline.
“When I started, my mum deemed them inappropriate. But also, at the time, I didn’t really understand the importance of that in my craft.
“I was a non-actor, never trained, and I never really had any passion for reading. I just was Arya when I was younger, and that’s kind of the way it worked out,” Williams said.
But, before the series ends the actress would like to read the novels to see if her portrayal of Arya matches up to how it was written.
“I brought what I brought to Arya, and I’m thrilled with the character I’ve strangely created now.
“It would be amazing to go back and read them after the fact, and see exactly what she was supposed to be like. But I keep thinking how funny it’d be, if someone sees me on the London Underground reading Game of Thrones!” she said.
The season 7 of Game of Thrones will air on Star World Premiere in India.
