Game of Thrones 
Her first role was that of Arya Stark, a tomboyish young girl from a noble family, in the 2011 HBO fantasy TV series Game of Thrones. In the adult-themed drama, Williams was the first child actor whose character killed another onscreen, in the eighth episode "The Pointy End". She received acclaim for her performance, with Zap2it calling her "wonderfully feisty" and the The Daily Telegraph "fantastic".
Williams continued to garner praise in Season 2, and HBO submitted her for consideration as Outstanding Supporting Actress at the 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards. Her performance won two 2012 Portal Awards for Best Supporting Actress/Television and Best Young Actor. At 15 years of age, Williams is the youngest ever to win the Best Supporting Actress category. In March 2013, Williams was nominated for a Young Artist Award as Best Young Supporting Actress in a TV Series.
