Maisie Williams played Trivial Pursuit with her boyfriend, and he got a question about Arya Stark
The holidays are a time for relaxing on your couch and limiting yourself to chill, fun activities like playing board games. Gather your family around a game of Settlers of Catan. Play a rousing round of Taboo. Or, if you want to be like Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams, play Trivial Pursuit.
It looks to be her game of choice this holiday season. Maisie Williams and her boyfriend Ollie Jackson recently battled wits over the game. And at one point, they drew a very special card. Williams posted a photo on Instagram of her holding up a trivia card, posing a pretty easy question to Jackson.
The question read: “In Game of Thrones, what is the name of the tomboy daughter of Ned and Catelyn Stark?” The answer is, of course, Arya Stark. And Maisie Williams, of course, plays Arya in the HBO series. We’re going to bet that Jackson knew the correct answer. But it would have been pretty funny if he said something like “Sansa” or “A girl has no name.”
The Trivial Pursuit question also functions as a fun test. If Jackson didn’t know the answer, Williams would be justified in kicking him to the curb. Because one, you should know what your girlfriend does for work. And two, you should definitely be watching Game of Thrones.
Williams also seemed aware of the test-like quality of the card.
“He’d better get this one right,” she captioned the post.
Maisie Williams, who is now 20, has been dating Jackson since around 2015. The two have kept their relationship relatively low-key and only made it Instagram official back in February.
Williams reportedly met Jackson in school, and he’s still a university student. So we can bet it’s probably a little surreal to see a reference to your girlfriend’s work on a Trivial Pursuit card.
