Maisie Williams thinks it’d be fun to spoil the final season of Game of Thrones for fans


Despite strict orders to keep their lips sealed, the Game of Thrones cast members are constantly bombarded with requests to give away information about the upcoming season of the show. At some point, I’m sure all of them have briefly considered throwing up their hands and just telling this interviewer or than fan everything they want to know. Are you happy now, world? they would think, triumphant. ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?

I write this little piece of fan fiction to set up something Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) said recently on The One Show, a British chat program. “I know what it’s like for someone to spoil my favourite TV show!” she said, before revealing that her “ultimate fantasy” is to unload everything she knows on someone. “I would love to just turn around to a fanatical fan one day and ruin the ending of the show,” she said, her eyes no doubt glinting with maniacal glee. “Watch their face, like, [drop]. That would be funny.”

I can’t quite decide if this is cruel or the funniest thing I’ve ever read. I’m leaning towards the latter. We all have our harmless fantasies, and at the end of the day, Williams isn’t actually going to spoil anything, as she proved on The One Show. Hosts Matt Baker and Alex Jones (but not that Alex Jones) tried to get her to give them the barest sliver of info about season 8, and she didn’t budge. They couldn’t even get her to reveal the season when the final six episodes would premiere. “The right season!” she said.

You can watch the full interview below. Williams covers several subjects, from Game of Thrones viewing parties to her app Daisie to her stage debut in I and You. And at 22:40, she demonstrates how to flip daggers like a Faceless Man.

I and You premieres at the Hampstead Theatre in London on October 19.
