Arya Stark is a popular Game of Thrones character – largely thanks to Maisie Williams’s talent. We’ve watched the 19 year old actress grow up on screen and while Game of Thrones can’t last forever, rumors about what will happen to the Stark kids abound, Maisie for her part has been circling New Mutants as the scottish mutant wolfsbane. There’s no official confirmation yet, but the evidence keeps stacking up.
The most recent piece of information is this tweet from Director Josh Boone. Tagging someone in a piece of artwork really only happens if a person has a huge connection to a character. This piece of artwork is gorgeous.
