'Game of Thrones' actress screws with fans' heads for prank video

Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on HBO's hit fantasy drama, pretends to be an employee at a hobby shop to get up close and personal with her fans.

Meeting celebrities in real life can be surreal. It feels like you can't be totally sure if they're actually standing in your presence because you're so familiar with seeing them on screen.

So just imagine how fans of HBO's "Game of Thrones" felt when they walked into a hobby shop and saw Arya Stark working the cash register.

Maisie Williams from HBO's "Game of Thrones" teamed up with Nylon Magazine and Aero Hobbies in Los Angeles to pull a prank for a video posted Wednesday on YouTube.

Williams pretended to be "Lorraine," who gets told all the time that she looks just like the youngest Stark daughter, and asked fans to act out act some of their favorite moments from the show, like King Joffrey's death and Cersei's infamous "walk of atonement," in exchange for some free "Game of Thrones" swag. Don't freak out because no one's clothes came off during the reenactment.

There are small NSFW moments in some of the language Williams and her customers use, but to be fair, you might drop a swear word or two too if you realized the guy who played Jon Snow was bagging your groceries or doing your root canal.

Season 6 of "Game of Thrones" premieres Sunday.
