Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams Does the 'Cinnamon Challenge'

Posted on

Guess you could say she paid the iron spice.

Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, who plays tough-as-nails Arya Stark on the HBO favorite, attempted the “cinnamon challenge” – an Internet meme where people attempt to eat a tablespoon of cinnamon and go a minute without drinking anything (and film the results, of course).

Trying “loads” of cinnamon, the actress, 15, manages to keep the cinnamon down for a few seconds before spitting it out in a cloud of smoke … much like a dragon.

“Why is this so entertaining, watching people suffer?” her friend asks. Williams would know: The brutal Game of Thrones is a runaway hit.
