Con­tact­ing ac­tor leads to creepy year­book quote

Sec­ond child for Game of Thrones star

Winnipeg Free Press - SundayXtra - - ENTERTAINMENT -

BE care­ful what you wish for: In June, a U.S. high school stu­dent named Rachael Wood, 18, used Twit­ter to ask a favour of Maisie Wil­liams, the 18-year- old ac­tress who plays Arya Stark on the hit HBO se­ries Game of Thrones.

Wood needed some­thing to put un­der her photo in her year­book. So, the web­site re­ports, she tweeted at Wil­liams, say­ing “If you tweet me back, I’ll make what­ever you say my quote.”

Wil­liams, ev­i­dently chan­nel­ing Arya, came through, the site re­ports.

That’s why some­day, years from now, Wood will be ex­plain­ing to her puz­zled chil­dren why her year­book pic­ture bears the cap­tion, “Any­one can be killed.” SPEAK­ING of Game of Thrones, Lena Headey — who plays Cer­sei Lannister on that show where ev­ery­body has stupid names — gave birth the other day to her sec­ond child.

She an­nounced the news in the time-hon­oured way, via Twit­ter, re­fer­ring to “un­con­di­tional heart­break­ing di­vine love” for the tyke.

Headey, 41, didn’t men­tion the baby’s name or sex and hasn’t re­vealed the fa­ther’s iden­tity.

The new­born’s big brother, five-year- old Wylie, is the son of Peter Lougran, a mu­si­cian she di­vorced in 2013.
