AceShowbiz - Maisie Williams may or may not be in trouble. The "Game of Thrones" actress stopped by "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Monday, April 1 where she talked about the highly-anticipated eighth and final season of the hit HBO series.
When asked to name top five iconic moments of her characters, the Arya Stark depicter told host Jimmy Fallon, "In terms of things that have really defined her, I think number one would be Ned's beheading in season 1. That was what spiraled her whole arc." Maisie continued, "And then she was with the Hound for a long time. I think there was a line in maybe season 3 where she was like, 'One day, I'm gonna stick a knife through your eye and out the back of your skull.' That was, like, a pretty defining moment when you realized how messed up in the head that she'd become."
The British actress also named the scene of Arya throwing away her original costume back in season 5 as one of the character's iconic moments. "She threw that into the water, and it was a really emotional moment." According to the actress, her reunion with Sansa in the last season also played a big part in Arya's arc, dubbing it "a big moment."
Jimmy then went on trying to get Maisie to give away some kind of hints about the final season. "I've decided to just keep a tight lip on everything. HBO have sent out a lot of memos recently about just say nothing," Maisie shared, adding that "they would absolutely kill me," if she did say something.
But Jimmy was persistent, saying that he was fine even if it was just a "crumb." Maisie then revealed that it was pretty emotional for the whole cast and crew during the final days of the filming. "When I found out that Arya died in the second episode...," she said, before she quickly realized that she dropped a major spoiler of the new season.
Maisie looked extremely terrified, while her eyes begun to tear up and her hands were visibly shaking. Although Jimmy repeatedly telling her that it was fine and that they would edit it out for her, she was not convinced enough. In the end, she stormed off the studio in panic before Jimmy followed her backstage.
Giving such a big spoiler indeed might put Maisie in a huge trouble. However, don't worry! It was just an April fools joke! "We got you guys so bad!" Jimmy exclaimed with Maisie dancing excitedly at the back.
Season 8 of "Game of Thrones" is set to premiere on April 14 at 9 P.M. on HBO.
