After so many shocking deaths (and one that we’re all still in denial about) over the past 5 seasons of Game of Thrones, it’s such a HUGE relief to hear news like this.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan UK, Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams revealed that the one big reason her character Arya Stark is kept alive in the show is because of author George R R Martin's wife.
"His wife did actually say that if he ever kills off Arya or Sansa, she's going to leave him," Maisie said.
We ALL feel the same way, now do we?
"I'll just keep smiling, and say 'if you want to stay with your wife, you've got to keep me alive!'" Maisie added, before confirming that she definitely wants to stick around for a few more seasons, "Yeah, that's something I'm hoping [for]. [Arya's] done a pretty good job so far."
And you most definitely have, Maisie. We’ve been rooting for you since Season 1!
