VOTE: Who’s your favourite Game of Thrones character?

Tyrion Lannister or Arya Stark?
I’m kind of limiting your options here, but for me, Tyrion and Arya are leaps and bounds above the other characters in Game of Thrones – and that’s saying a lot because the casting and characters are phenomenal.
Played by Peter Dinklage, Tyrion is one of the more cunning and witty characters you’ll find. Every time he’s on screen he provides some comic relief, yet is pretty badass when it comes to playing “the game.” He’s managed to go from the forgotten son of Tywin Lannister, living in the shadow of his superstar Knight of a brother Jaime and Queen sister Cersei to Hand of the King. He’s a character you want to see succeed.
Played by 15-year old actress Maisie Williams, Arya is cunning like Tyrion, but also strong as a young woman who’s willing to forge her own path and not take her place as a Lady in the kingdom. The only daughter of Ned Stark has been through some unfortunate circumstances that have led her to become independent fairly quickly, and she’s managed to handle it with skill beyond her age and class.
