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.

Though she portrays fan favorite Arya Stark, actress Maisie Williams admits there are drawbacks to the role.

"I am a tomboy, but maybe not as far as Arya," Williams told PEOPLE at the opening of a Game of Thrones exhibit sponsored by HBO and Time Warner Cable in New York City.

"She likes to play in the mud and stuff, which I do like to do, but I quite like to get it clean as soon as possible."

Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams Does the 'Cinnamon Challenge'

Originally posted 06/01/2012 07:00PM



Guess you could say she paid the iron spice.

Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, who plays tough-as-nails Arya Stark on the HBO favorite, attempted the "cinnamon challenge" – an Internet meme where people attempt to eat a tablespoon of cinnamon and go a minute without drinking anything (and film the results, of course).

Trying "loads" of cinnamon, the actress, 15, manages to keep the cinnamon down for a few seconds before spitting it out in a cloud of smoke ... much like a dragon.

"Why is this so entertaining, watching people suffer?" her friend asks. Williams would know: The brutal Game of Thrones is a runaway hit.

HBO's Game of Thrones features a roster of down and dirty men – guys like mud-soaked Jaime Lannister – but they clean up rather nicely.

The latest issue of VMAN magazine features the actor who plays Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, looking more like Prince Charming.

Whether his King-slaying character is dirtied and beaten-down or scrubbed up for the palace, playing him is a joy, the actor says.

"Working on Game of Thrones isn't difficult – it's challenging, which is great," he tells VMAN. "When you do a show where the writing is weak, it's difficult. But on Game of Thrones we have such brilliant writing. The challenge here is to not f––– it up."

The long summer is ending, winter is coming, and don't even think about spring. The second season of HBO's thrilling fantasy drama Game of Thrones has arrived.

Episode one, "The North Remembers," was a typically seat-of-your-pants, edge-of-your-seat tour of the geography of Westeros, from deserts to ice-bound forests, as we witnessed rival camps preparing to go to war for the Iron Throne.

Here are the developments (spoiler alert) that most intrigued me and will have me hooked for the whole season:
