On Game of Thrones, Maisie Williams stars as pint-sized killer Arya Stark. Arya appears to be quite small on the show, but how tall is Maisie in real life?
Well, this is one celebrity height that the internet seems to agree on. Google and IMDb both agree that Maisie stands at a height of five foot nothing, which sounds right to us.
So how does Maisie’s height compare with her costars? Her current companion the Hound is portrayed by Rory McCann who is 6’6”, making him one of the show’s tallest cast members. Arya’s big sister Sansa, portrayed by Sophie Turner, really is her big sister, since she’s nearly a foot taller than Maisie at 5’9”. It sure seems like everyone is bigger than Maisie! Is there anyone near her size?
Emilia Clarke, who portrays Daenerys Targaryen, is only 5’2”, so she wouldn’t make for much more of an imposing presence than Arya. And Arya’s uncle, Tyrion Lannister, is played by 4’5” Peter Dinklage.
While continued height is a problem for some of Game of Thrones’ child actors (we’re looking at you, Bran!), Maisie seems to be out of the woods. She is 17 years old and not likely to have another growth spurt any time soon. That’s fine with us, we like our little 5’0” Arya!
