And his reaction was amazing.

The cast of Game of Thrones have a lot of fans, obviously. It's no wonder that the cast are often approached by these legions of fans out in the real world. But Game of Thrones fans aren't just any fans. They don't just ask for selfies or autographs, they ask for very specific, very Game of Thrones-y, frankly, very weird things.

In a recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Maisie Williams, who plays everyone's favorite little assassin/sociopath, Arya Stark, revealed the strange thing fans tend to ask of her—it has to do with Arya's infamous kill list.

“A lot of people come up to me in the street and they want me to recite the names but then add their name,” she said, admitting that she finds the request "a little odd."

Anthony Joshua, who was also a guest on the episode, didn't think it was weird. He thought it was actually kind of awesome. Norton asked Williams to recite the list (which, of course she has memorized at this point), and she added a few new names to it.

"Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, The Mountain, Beric Dondarrion, Thoros of Myr, The Red Woman, Tom Hanks, Anthony Joshua, Graham Norton," she said in her eeriest Arya voice. 

“Please kill me!” Norton joked after she was finished.

Hanks' reaction to being added to the list is almost better than the fact that Williams decided to add him to it on the fly—almost. Game of Thrones will return to HBO for its final season in 2019.
