Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has already begun planting the seeds for her post-Arya Stark life. The 21-year-old Bristol-born actress began a new venture in stage acting last year and recently developed an app called Daisie, a networking tool for those in the creative arts industry.

Even though Williams appears to have set herself up for a busy 2019 and beyond, she has admitted that moving on from Game of Thrones—a TV series she has been a part of for eight years—won't be an easy task.

“It's going to be really weird when it's done and every day it's a step closer to it not being a part of my life anymore," Williams recently told Sky News. "People are going to come up to me on the street and say 'Weren't you on that show?' and that's going to be bizarre."

Williams, who was cast in the epic HBO series when she was just 13 years old, went on to say that she doesn’t think anyone will be satisfied once the series is over after its final episode airs on May 19, 2019.

"I don't think anyone is going to be satisfied [when it ends]," she said. "I don't think anyone wants it to end, but I'm really proud of this final season. I've always felt ashamed to say things like that but I am."

Even though she's immensely proud of the final season, Williams won’t be hosting any big send-off party like her co-star Kit Harington. Instead, Williams will likely choose a more laid-back way to say goodbye to the groundbreaking series.

"[It will] probably be me and my flatmate, and he's going to say 'well done,' and I'm going to go 'thanks, bedtime,'" Williams admitted.

The final season of Game of Thrones premieres on April 14, 2019.

Stranger Things is great at placing the truly terrifying alongside the absolutely adorable. One minute we are gushing over Eleven and Mike’s teen romance, and the next we’re jumping off the couch at the sight of those possessed by the Mind Flayer.

No matter how seamless the Duffer Brothers' Netflix series is in weaving together these moments, it seems like it would be impossible to make the Demogorgon cute. But somehow, one crafty fan has done just that.

Etsy shop ThatCraftyFriendShop has created Demogorgon headpieces that fit perfectly on your dog’s head.

People reports that the headpieces range in size from extra small (for 5- to 10-pound dogs) all the way to extra large (for dogs over 75 pounds). Prices range from $25 to $75, depending on the size of your four-legged friend.

These wool and felt doggy costumes are perfect for Halloween, or even a Stranger Things watch party while you continue to binge and re-binge the third seasonwith a decked-out doggy by your side.

J.K. Rowling Reveals How San Francisco Inspired Major Harry Potter Location

The award-winning play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is about to open at the Curran Theater in San Francisco. The two-part drama takes place 19 years after the events in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and depicts Harry’s life as his son, Albus, is about to begin school at Hogwarts.

J.K. Rowling has pointed out that San Francisco had a deep influence on the original Harry Potter novels, SFGate reports. In the video below, Rowling talks about how Alcatraz, the infamous former prison, inspired her creation of Azkaban.

"[San Francisco] is a very distinctive, special place—I love the feel of it, I love the architecture,” Rowling said. “I've actually said this before, but Azkaban is a combination of Alcatraz and Abbadon, which is an old word for hell. I squeezed those words together. The idea of the rock in the middle of the ocean was directly inspired by a visit to Alcatraz."

With its mist and Gothic mood, it’s no wonder this slice of San Francisco inspired a big part of the Harry Potter world.
