Game of Thrones

HBO's 'A Song of Ice and Fire' TV Show


Arya Stark

Played by Maisie Williams

The third of Lord Eddard’s legitimate children, Arya is the very picture of a tomboy, spending her time among the servants and their children, asking questions and playing games and avoiding all kind of of more lady-like pursuits. She exasperates her mother Lady Catelyn, who sometimes wishes she was more like her elder sister Sansa; it’s no surprise that the sisters do not get along. Closest with her bastard half-brother Jon, like him she’s the only other child of Eddard Stark who takes after him with her brown hair and grey eyes.

On the show, Arya started the show as being aged 11, whereas in the novels she starts at 9 years old.
