Arya actress: It'd be cool to kill off this character on 'Game of Thrones'

Maisie Williams says she'd like to have her character cross another major name off her list before the hit show ends.


Watch your back, Cersei.


Warning: Possible "Game of Thrones" spoilers ahead.

Look out, Cersei Lannister. You may be on the Iron Throne for now, but Arya of House Stark is gunning for you.

Maisie Williams, who plays Arya, recently made news when she tweeted "nothing will prepare" fans for the show's next season. She's speaking out again.

Williams spoke with Variety about her role, and she has her sights set high. When asked who she'd like Arya to interact with next season, newly crowned Queen Cersei and creepy priestess Melisandre topped the charts. (Remember, Arya's keeping a mental list of people she needs to murder to get her revenge.)

"To cross another big name off the list -- but then I feel like people might come for me, because although everyone doesn't like Cersei, we kind of love to hate her and I love to hate her," Williams said in the interview published Friday. "For the story it would be cool to meet either one of those and put a sword into them."

She's not the only one who'd like to see Arya at the end of that Cersei-killing sword. Actress Lena Headey, who plays Cersei, told Entertainment Weekly last month she is hoping for a "great death by Arya."

Hear that, "Thrones" showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss? Both parties are all for it, so let's make this happen.
