Arya Stark has been spending most of the past few seasons on Game of Thrones on the run inboynito. Ever since fleeing the capital with the help of Yoren (Night’s Watch recruiter), by chopping her locks and disguising her as an orphan boy named “Arry,” she has been trying to make it home every since. Bumping into all sorts of trouble along the way including; Ser Gregor Clegane (becoming a cup bearer for Tywin Lannister), Brotherhood Without Banners, and Sandor Clegane, Arya eventually finds herself filling the shoes of her fake persona – becoming a hardened, brutal killer, doing what is necessary in order to survive. Throughout this whole period, Arya and Clegane become scavengers, and they aren’t exactly the cleanest of people travelling across Westeros. Futhermore, we are left at the end of Season 4 with Arya leaving an injured Clegane and aboarding a ship for that’s heading towards Braavos, and that only means one thing folks!
A “Stark” warning (…my bad!). This article contains many ***SPOILERS***
So it appears that Arya Stark is eventually able to have a good clean once she aboards Ternesio Terys‘ ship (Titan’s Daughter) after showing him the iron coin given to her by Jaqen H’ghar.
After washing off all the grubbiness and mud that has managed to cling on to Arya throughout her four Seasons spent on the run, she will finally get a change of clothes in Season 5, and there is official art work that gives a rough idea of what Arya will look like when she takes on the persona of Cat of the Canals.
Here is the image for your viewing pleasure:
When Maisie Williams was asked about the change in look for her character in Season 5 and she seems happy about the change, saying:
“It’s very neutral, very plain, but clean! I have clean hair that actually moves. I had my hair braided up to these big buns and bits of jewelry and a jumper thing with a long skirt, and I came onto the set and nobody recognized me.”
Here are the photographs of Maisie Williams on set:
I guess when you are playing the same character for so long it makes things a little refreshing when there is a wardrobe change, especially after 4 Seasons. Things also take an interesting turn for Arya once she becomes acquainted with the Faceless Men. She has ‘seen’ her fair share of killings… and no doubt she will be ‘seeing’ many more to come… spoilers ahoy!
Do you like Arya’s new look? Or do you prefer her boyish looks from previous seasons?
