arya-stark-game-of-thrones.jpgFans of the HBO hit TV series Game of Thrones, including your editorial team here at The Bilerico Project, know that Arya Stark is a young, street-smart warrior -- in short, a total badass.

Well as it turns out, the actress who portrays her, 17-year-old Maisie Williams, is every bit as fierce as her onscreen alter ego -- at least when it comes to LGBT rights.

In a recent Q&A webchat organized by HBO, a fan asked Williams what she'd wish for if she were given three wishes. This was her reply:

If i could have three wishes I'd wish for happiness for me, my family and everyone I care about, I'd solve world hunger and make gay marriage legal everywhere.

Right on, Maisie. Thanks for standing up for equality!
