Game Of Thrones ‘Little Bird’ Annette Hannah Tells #ThroneWatch: “I Want The Starks To Win!”

We tracked down one of King’s Landing’s ‘little birds’ last week at Belfast’s Titancon 2016 for a chat about THAT stabbing scene in the season 6 finale and who should sit on the Iron Throne.

“I play Frances and I am mainly known for killing Grand Maester Pycelle.” 11 year old Annette Hannah told ThroneWatch. “That scene was very long and tiring…but the stabbing part was my favourite!”

We’ve got to admit, it was pretty fun for us too.

The young actress, who also has dwarfism, did a great job of killing off the Grand Maester in the last season and was thrilled to get the part of Frances. At such a young age, her confidence and ambition is impressive.

“Game of Thrones is my main focus at the moment.” Annette said. “I am waiting on the results of some auditions, but this is what I’m focusing on right now.”

This may be her first experience with the world of casting, but Annette is keen to add to her resume and attends The Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts in Derby.

So who is her favourite GoT character? “It has to be Arya.” she said. “I would love Sansa or Arya to sit on the Iron Throne because they are just my favourites. I really love Daenerys, but I think Sansa should win it because of everything she has been through.”

A loyal member of Team Stark, Annette is understandably excited to see what happens next season. Filming has already begun in Belfast and HBO have confirmed that the next two seasons will be the show’s last.

Annette said: “I just mainly want the Starks to win. I just love them so much!”

She’s not alone. Keep an eye out for more #ThroneWatch interviews coming soon and see¬†what Annette gets up to in Game of Thrones Season 7, which airs in the summer of 2017.
