Maisie Williams, best known as Arya Stark in the hit HBO series has promised that the much-awaited finale of Game of Thrones will be “incredible” for women.

Williams told Britain’s Elle magazine, “For me, ‘Game of Thrones’ is a medieval world in which women don’t have a lot of rights yet they still prevail. But I do think that as the seasons have gone on, it’s become more and more amazing for women. And this final season is going to be incredible. It just feels great, being on set with all these girls. They’re all ruling, you know, they’re all back on top - it’s pretty impressive.”
The actress featured in the series since its inception in 2011 and wanted to sail through all the seasons. “Season one to eight, that’s what I wanted. I was in the first episode and I want to be in the last,” she said.
