11 Weird Facts About Arya Stark – Game of thrones: Arya Stark is one of the best-loved Game of Thrones characters. She is a tough, resilient young girl who has survived on her own while traveling through Westeros and seeing the worst humanity has to offer. Even if Arya is your favorite of the Stark siblings, there are still a lot of facts that you may not have known about this pint-sized hero.
Believe it or not, there are multiple colleges and universities that teach classes on Game of Thrones! Arya is a huge subject in all of these classes because of how her character challenges female stereotypes.
10. Scaredy Cat
Despite the fact that Arya is quite violent herself, Williams dislikes the graphic content on the show, and has been known to cover her eyes while watching. Um, sorry about the Red Wedding, Maisie.
9. Miss Independent
Even at a young age, Arya knew that she hated the idea of growing up just to get married off to a Lord. She wanted to be independent, and was bored with traditionally feminine activities. This caused some friction with her older sister Sansa, who is desperate to be seen as a lady. Even so, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, the actresses who play Arya and Sansa, are close friends in real life.
Williams and Turner got matching tattoos that say “07.08.09,” which is the date they both found out they got the parts on Game of Thrones.
7. Odd One out
Arya forms a strong relationship with her (alleged) half-brother, Jon Snow. Jon gives her a sword that is small and thin, which she names Needle.
6. Cat Lady
In the books, Arya spent a lot of her time playing with stray cats around The Red Keep in-between her lessons with sword master Syrio Forel. She would try to keep up with them and chase them around. This actually contributed to her sword training, making her faster and more agile.
Arya and the rest of the Stark children get their own direwolf puppies. Arya names her wolf “Nymeria” after a woman who sailed 10,000 ships and became the ruler of Dorne.
4. Like Father, Like Daughter
Out of all of the Stark children, Arya resembles her father Ned the most. In the books, her face is described as being long and horse-like, even though in the TV series actress Maisie Williams is cute as a button.
3. Family Name
Ned Stark named Arya after his grandmother on his mother’s side. Her name was Arya Flint, and she lived in the northern mountain clans.
In the TV series, soon after the death of her father, Arya decides to cut her hair and pretend that she is a boy; she becomes Tywin Lannister’s cupbearer after Lannister recognizes she has disguised herself. In the books, she serves Roose Bolton instead.
1. Drinking the Kool Aid
Though the Faceless Men are mysterious, we do know some things about them. For one, they’re ancient, and have been around since before the Doom of Valyria. The Faceless Men consider themselves servants of the Many-Faced God, and grew out of a group of slaves who worked in the mines and worshipped different gods of death, who they eventually consolidated into the Many-Faced God. The Faceless Men started by giving death’s “gift” to suffering slaves, but quickly moved on to give the gift of death to their cruel masters, becoming skilled assassins.

Sabyasachi Chakraborty Was Supposed To Be A Part Of THESE Shah Rukh Khan & Aamir Khan Films
Veteran Bengali actor Sabyasachi Chakrabarty has had Bollywood exposure in “Dil Se..”, “Parineeta” and “Khakee“, besides a brush with international cinema in Mira Nairs “The Namesake”. The actor who has been popular as Feluda among Bengali film buffs, shares he missed out on working with superstars Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan while in Bollywood.
“Most of the time I had to say ‘no’ to an opportunity because the role came to me at the last minute — when the casting director calls me and asks for dates within 15 days. At times they say that they have outdoor shooting abroad that I have to be a part of. Since I always have schedules for at least two months in hand, I couldn’t say no to all those I had already committed because of one offer that comes at the very last moment,” Sabyasachi Chakrabarty told IANS.
“Having said that I did miss out on working with some of the stars and that I feel bad about. Aamir Khan thought of a character for me in ‘Lagaan’. Shah Rukh Khan thought about one role for me in ‘Ashoka’. There were many such offers I couldn’t take,” shared the actor who recently appeared in the Zee5 web series ‘Lalbazaar’.
However, Sabyasachi Chakrabarty shared his experience of rejection, too.
“There were instances when I was selected, went to Mumbai, spoke to the producer of the film. Then, from the newspapers, I got to know that the film has started its first schedule of shooting and they did not even inform me I am not in the film! But ye sab to hota hi rehta hai hum sabke saath (these things keep happening to us). I see no reason of feeling disappointed. I do not get into depression by such incidents. You move on and as long as you are alive, keep your hopes alive!” smiled the actor.
