1 minute read

Maisie Williams revealed she was Facetiming with her mom Thursday when she found out she had received her first Emmy nomination for her role as Arya Stark on Game of Thrones. The 19-year-old actress tweeted about the moment she saw the exciting news, explaining that it popped up on Twitter while she was video chatting.

“Jus on [Facetime] with me mam and twitter pops up telling me I’ve been nominated for an emmy,” she wrote. “Wtfahhahhaahhelpme.”


Williams was nominated in the “Outstanding Supporting Actress” category for her work in Thrones‘ sixth season, a 10-episode arc that saw her character transition from a blind trainee of the House of Black and White to an independent — and vengeful — faceless assassin.

The HBO drama garnered 23 total nominations, including nods for Williams’ costars Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister).
