Real-life Arya crashes ‘Game of Thrones’ viewing party, makes greatest Insta-story of all time

Enjoy watching the Game of Thrones season premiere yesterday? You probably didn’t enjoy it as much as these guys.

Maisie Williams, who plays impossibly badass teenager Arya in the show, decided to make a bunch of college students’ night and surprised them at their season six viewing party.

Now, usually strangers rocking up to your place unannounced late on a Sunday night is cause to call the police and hide under your bed, but this looks like it was the greatest gate-crashing of all time.

It all started with the 19-year-old tweeting out to UCLA students, asking them to send in photos of their GoT-themed shindigs.

Her loyal subjects obliged:


After choosing the lucky dorm room, Williams documented the who evening on her Instagram which is now the stuff of legends:

(2/12) I found a couple, Mark and Kate, film students, who were throwing a party at their apartment, with a few friends. So at 8pm we left the hotel to go get snacks.

(3/12) We saw (on Twitter) that Mark and Kate had already made Game of Thrones themed snacks, and decorated their apartment, but who doesn't love extra popcorn and crisps?

(5/12) We could hear the party inside so we had to be REALLY quiet!

(4/12) SNACKS DONE. We were on our way to surprise our lovely fans!

(6/12) Firstly, I met Mark. The buzzer was broken so Mark came down to let us in. After exhaling a "HOLY SHIT!", we hugged it out and he helped us inside.

(7/12) Mark and I devised a cunning plan. He would enter first declaring that they had won the GoT swag (this was a ploy we made up to throw people off the scent) and I would follow after hoping and praying that everyone would actually recognise me.

(8/12) My favourite part is how excited they sound to win the swag, little did they know, I was just around the corner…

(9/12) They had the coolest Game of Thrones decorations, but this was my favourite. My money's on dead, it seems I'm outnumbered.

(10/12) I went there to surprise them with snacks, but when I got there, I found myself trying one of every single snack they had made.

(11/12) They were catching up on the last episode of Season 5 when I went in, and we all giggled nervously as we took pictures during the famous "shame" scene. I had the most amazing time, everyone was so welcoming and excited… Thanks to Mark, Kate and company for having us in your lovely flat. Enjoy the rest of Season 6.

(12/12) Ps. Thanks for the dragon egg cookies, they were THA BOMB

Thankfully it was Williams who was sent around to the party, and not one of the 10,000 other women in the cast who bang on screen – sex scenes can be awkward enough in company, but watching it with the actor would just be a whole new level of terribleness.
