Maisie Williams just dropped a major Game of Thrones spoiler on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon as an April Fool’s Day prank.
Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on the world famous show Game of Thrones, made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Monday. While talking about Arya’s most defining moments, including Sean Bean’s character, Ned Stark’s, death.
Like most fans, Jimmy Fallon was pressing William for a hint regarding the new and last season of Game of Thrones. “A crumb is all I ask, m’lady,” he asked.
The producers of the series have kept the production extremely secretive and none of the cast members have revealed any spoilers. Williams said, “I’ve decided to just keep a tight lip on everything. HBO has sent out a lot of memos recently about just saying nothing. So, there’s really nothing I could say. They would absolutely kill me.”
However, after being asked about the last few days of shooting, Maisie slipped up and said, “During shooting, like, the final days were really, like, emotional, saying goodbye to all of the cast. Because when I found out that Arya died in like the second episode, I was—”
The audience and Fallon went into panic mode after this declaration. Williams covered her mouth and looked shocked at herself. She ran off the stage with Fallon following her. However, they returned a few seconds later and yelled, “April Fool’s” calming everyone in the audience.
