Season 4 of Game of Thrones brought about a number of surprises for not only fans of the television series, but book readers alike. Additional scenes, and diversions from the written story were plentiful, sometimes to great delight, and sometimes to dismay. Looking ahead to Season 5, it’s safe to say we’re in for some more surprises.
In a new interview with TV Line, Maisie Williams says that even the actors are left in the dark about some of the finer details of their story until the last minute, and that she hopes the show continues to shock all of its viewers.
Maisie reveals that although she’s been filled in on an interesting development for Arya, she doesn’t know how it’s going to happen, and that’s usually how it is.
“I know a couple of really cool things happen in the books with Arya, and I just had a meeting about about a certain thing that happens to Arya, but I still don’t know how it happens. And that’s what it was like last year; I was learning fight scenes, even though I didn’t know who I’d be fighting or why I’d be fighting them. People think the cast members know all the ins and outs, but we really don’t.”
