Game of Thrones star wishes for gay marriage everywhere

Arya Stark actress Maisie Williams was asked what her one wish would be, and surprisingly it wasn't the death of all the Lannisters

Game of Thrones star wishes for gay marriage everywhere

British actress Maisie Williams is known for kicking some serious butt as Arya Stark on HBO’s Game of Thrones.

So beware bigots, because one of her wishes is that same-sex marriage is made legal everywhere.

The 17-year-old, who stars as the increasingly murderous youngest Stark daughter, was taking part in a fan chat organized by HBO.

One fan asked her: ‘If you could make three wishes, what would you choose?’

‘From [my] perspective, if I could have three wishes I’d wish for happiness for me, my family and everyone I care about, I’d solve world hunger and make gay marriage legal everywhere,’ she responded.

But that doesn’t mean she’s interested in getting married herself. Much like her on-screen counterpart, she considers marriage ‘extremely pointless’.

‘Right now, my view on marriage is that it’s extremely pointless. I see why other people get married,’ she told Vulture.

‘But for me, I’ll never get married, so I always do designs on my wedding ring fingers because I’ll never wear a finger there.’

Earlier this year, Kristian Nairn who plays Hodor on the fantasy series came out as gay.

He said he did it to combat that when you’re gay, you have to ‘look a certain way.’

Nairn told the Wall Street Journal: ‘You have to be thin. You have to be tanned. You have to have small eyebrows. You have to look pretty. And that’s never been me.’
