It's a lucky thing that Maisie Williams portrays Arya and not, say, Daenerys, on Game of Thrones – the actress watches it with her "nan!"

Williams, 17, stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday to promote the upcoming season of Game of Thrones. Cast in the role of Arya when was was only 12 years old, she has always watched the show with her entire family – and "every time there was a pair of boobs on screen my mum would fill up [my nan's] drink with more gin," she told her TV host.

Game of Thrones Star Warns Fans to 'Be Prepared for the Worst' in Season 5 Premiere

Originally posted 03/20/2015 09:25AM

Take the themes of love, power and revenge – stir in two gruesome murders, a prophecy of death and enough sexual innuendo to burn down the whole of Westeros – and there you have the first episode of Game of Thrones season 5 (spoiler alert).

Everyone's favorite naughty dwarf, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), is safe after killing his dad and his lover and getting smuggled out of Westeros by Varys (Conleth Hill). Varys tries to persuade Tyrion to follow a new leader: "Westeros needs to be saved from itself," Varys says. He seems to favor the white-haired beauty Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) as a contender for the throne.

Send a raven. Game of Thrones is back.

And there couldn't possibly have been a more fitting location for Wednesday night's season 5 world premiere than the Tower of London.

Kit Harington, Natalie Dormer and Charles Dance were among the stars from the acclaimed HBO fantasy drama who brought Westeros to London, where the walls of the "Bloody Tower" were emblazoned with illuminated projections of dragons and flames that flickered along the red carpet.

Even the much-coveted Iron Throne found its way to to the historic fortress, which just happens to be circled by ravens – though not the three-eyed kind.

Emma Watson's speech about feminism and gender equality made waves back in September when she announced the launch of the HeForShe campaign in a United Nations address.

The campaign aims to "galvanize as many men and boys as possible to be advocates for gender equality," Watson said at the time, and to correct the misconceptions surrounding modern feminism.

However, Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams was not particularly impressed by Watson's speech.

Yes, George R. R. Martin, we know that every man must die. But that doesn't make the deaths on Game of Thrones any less painful to watch. Fortunately, HBO just made sure that many of the fan favorites could stay around for a lot longer.

The principal stars of the hit HBO drama – who include Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) and Kit Harington (Jon Snow) – signed new contracts to keep them around for a potential seventh and final season (and give them massive raises), according to The Hollywood Reporter.
