The actual fight itself!
That’s right, the real life spectacle of the two actual actors, Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Gwendolyn Brooks (Brienne of Tarth) going toe-to-toe in preparation for the onscreen fight.
Can you say AMAZING?
Turns out, Maisie Williams has just as much skill IRL as she does on GOT. Look at that dagger flip. How many times did that thing turn? Once? Twice? Three times? Who knows?!
But she caught it like a boss.
No surprise here, as Maisie Williams has had LOTS of training.
Maisie joined the GOT cast when she was only 12 years old. She’s been at this for longer than most people have been at their current jobs.
Of course she’s fighting like a champ.
But she's also had help.
Because Maisie and Gwendolyn are so different in heights, it was very difficult choreographing the fight. Stunt doubles had to be used…
And fight choreographers…
Point is, a lot went into making the fight seem realistic.
That dagger flip, tho!
But the actual execution of all that training was all Maisie. So when Gwendolyn asks her ‘Who taught you this?’ and she replies, ‘No one,’ it’s no joke.
Only she can make that dagger flip look so good.
