How do actresses really react to short cuts?
Maisie Williams wore a wig when her character (Arya Stark) got a haircut to look like a boy at the end of season 1, but had her real hair chopped off before filming began on season 2. ''We picked a style that we could make grungy and dirty for the show, but that she could also look pretty cool in as herself. That was quite a process,'' Alexander says. Gwendoline Christie, who plays androgynous Brienne, had never had a short 'do before cropping her tresses for the series. ''She had hair to her breastplate, and I had to cut it right off. It freaked her out, but she loves it now.''
