    I’m not asking who you think gave the best performance in this season, but overall in all 4 seasons?

    I’m 100% behind Maisie Williams.  What a gripping performance as Arya, from the beginning.  She’s got a great and authentic feel for her character.

    Her material was at its best in Season 2, but my heart is set on one gal:

    It is a toss-up between Gwendolie Christie and Rose Leslie. But all of these actors have been terrific over these seasons.

    Right now, I give the edge to Lena Headey (who I would have nominated every year except for Season 3). My runner-up would be Emilia Clarke (despite her off performance in season 4, the highs she reached in seasons 1 and 3 give her enough to be in second place). I have to say that all the women mentioned, plus some who haven’t (e.g. Diana Rigg), have been excellent (to varying degrees) throughout the 4 seasons that have aired.

    Emilia and Lena have equally great performances in the show. Emilia in the 3rd season had much more screentime than she did this season and had more for her character in the 3rd season but Lena got to do much more with her character than she did in any other season. Emilia has the storyline in season 4 and has great moments and so does Lena.

    When it comes to actual acting I’ve always favored Lena. As far as as series long arc they’ve all been dodgy for all the female characters. In fact, they’ve been dodgy for every character that’s not Tyrion. Turner overall has probably the most satisfying arc. Clarke is great in big moments but her acting can ring hollow in quiet ones. Still, she had the best arc of any character in any season in the debut year. Maisie gets more and more engaging but her drifter and grifter storyline has never done much for me. Going with Lena.

    I would have nominated:
    Season 1: Emilia Clarke & Michelle Fairley
    Season 2: Lena Headey
    Season 3: Diana Rigg
    Season 4:
    I voted Lena Headey.

    Lena Headey probably could have been a one episode guest star and as long as that episode was Blackwater I’d probably still pick her. Thankfully she wasn’t and the decision stays the same. Lena headey.

    Overall – Sophie Turner. Runner-up Gwendolie Christie. Second Runner-up Maisie Williams.

    By Seasons: 
    S01 – Sophie Turner 
    S02 – Maisie Williams  
    S03 – Emilia Clarke (tie) Gwendolie Christie
    (but one must mention Michelle Fairley’s jaw-dropping scene when looking at season 3)
    S04 – Sophie Turner

    She’s the other for me besides “Brienne” and Ygritte, and not just in season 3. People have made “fun” of her and her perfs, and of course, they can all bite me. Lol. She has a short scene in The Others which caught my attention.

    These women are so perfectly cast, and their performances make those characters at the same time. Not an easy thing, with a cast of characters this vast.

    And thus far, Lena Headey has never given a perf I havent loved.

    Remember when HBO inexplicably submitted Lena Headey in lead for the first season and she had only eight minutes in her best tape?
