68th Emmy Awards: Maisie Williams Supporting Actress In A Drama Series For Game of Thrones – Facts You Need To Know

Maisie Williams took home her first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Drama Series in the 68th Emmy Awards for her character Arya Stark in Game of Thrones, which has won 23 nods for the pack. The Emmy nomination was long overdue for the actress, who played the little princess from the Stark clan turned the most audacious warrior with such a mastery.

The Bristol-born actress was just 12-years old when she brought to life the valiant character from George R.R. Martin’s bestselling novels, the Buzzfeed reported.

According to Williams, she learned about the Emmy nomination in the most adorable way. She was on FaceTime with her mother when a notification of the congratulatory tweet from “Game of Thrones” popped up on her screen. But, as she was speaking to her mother, she could not immediately check what the tweet was all about.

“I found out in the best way,” the 19-year-old was quoted as saying by the People. “I was away from her last week, and I speak to her every day – so I FaceTimed her … and a little notification from Twitter came up – a tweet from Game of Thrones.”

She added, “I didn’t want to say anything, ’cause Mom was talking at the time, and I was kind of trying to speed up the conversation so I could click off and go look at what this tweet was.”

But her Twitter account was logged in from her mother’s phone as well. So, seconds later the notification reached her mother’s phone as well. They read the news together, while still on FaceTime, and according to the actress she fell silent for about 30 seconds and her mother started screaming with excitement.

“I was just so happy and couldn’t quite believe it really – I still can’t believe it,” Williams said. “And it was amazing to share that moment with my mom. She was crying.”

While playing Arya Stark was her first acting gig, she also played Lydia in Carol Morley’s “The Falling.” The character, who is a school girl in the 1960s, is distinctly different from “Game of Thrones’” Arya. She also made a guest appearance in “Doctor Who” and played the lead role in Niall Heery’s Irish indie “Gold,” the Deadline reported.

Her role in “Game of Thrones” has earned her number of Portal awards as well as the 2013 BBC Radio 1 Teen Award, according to Famous Birthdays.
