Maisie Williams accepts Guinness World Record on behalf of Game of Thrones


Game of Thrones has earned a spot in the 2016 Guinness World Records as the largest TV drama simulcast. Game of Thrones aired the largest simultaneous broadcast of a television drama when the second episode of the most recent season was simulcast to 173 countries and territories around the world, beginning at 2 a.m. on April 20, swiping the record from CSI who’d totted up a figure two countries shy just five weeks before. Actress Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark in the adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s novels, collected the certificate on behalf of the show.

Williams made a play to break a world record by skydiving for a good cause this summer, planning to jump out of a plane at 15,000 feet. However, according to Williams’ Twitter feed, “good old British weather” ruined the fun and the jump was postponed. But, at least she’ll be able to share in this glory with the rest of the cast and crew.The 2016 edition of Guinness World Records will be released Sept. 10.
