He changed his mind later. Great. Doesn't retroactively change how he crafted them in the first place. With Rob & Jon, it actually helps - as some of the stuff they pulled off in the books is hard to belive from a couple of teenagers (from a leadership perspective).
but Arya, in the books, is a pre-pubescent girl. Maisie Williams - is not.
Name one example where the actress playing her being 14 (11 when she was cast) has conflicted with the story.
