Maisie Williams accidentally dropped a major Game of Thrones spoiler last night on Jimmy Fallon’s show. The 21-year-old actress was promoting Game of Thrones when she was asked to share a tiny spoiler and she did. Sadly.
At first she was having none of it, explaining to host Jimmy Fallon “I’ve decided to just keep a tight lip on everything. HBO have sent out a lot of memos recently about just saying nothing. So, there’s really nothing I could say, they would absolutely kill me.”
Fallon kept pushing, “You couldn’t give one little spoiler, one little hint. A crumb is all I ask. M’lady, just a crumb is all I’m asking for.”
And she cracked by revealing, “During shooting, like, the final days were really emotional saying goodbye to all of the cast because when I found out that Arya died in like the second episode I was…”
Maisie looked genuinely terrified, her hands were shaking and her eyes filled with tears. She asked Jimmy Fallon if they could edit it out and he assured her that they would. She couldn’t continue the interview and walked off the stage which is where Jimmy’s acting stepped up a notch or two because he looked really concerned.
After trying to find his interviewee, Fallon pulled back the curtain to reveal the grinning actress and they both shouted in unison ‘APRIL FOOL’S’.
Fallon commended Maisie’s efforts telling her, “You are good, you are so good. Oh my God, we got your guys so bad. Maisie Williams everybody.”
