Maisie Williams, who plays the fan-favourite Arya Stark in the Game Of Thrones, did an interview with The Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio. Their conversation covered many topics, but most interestingly Game Of Thrones.
Grimshaw asked Williams on what she knows about how the series will end.
“None…And I make educated guesses and we try and get answers and bits of information and knowledge from the writers, but they keep it very close to their chest. But it’s so exciting, and particularly the end of this series, it’s just a great finale, and it makes me excited for the series after. Cause I’m, like, one season ahead of everyone else, and so, I get the scripts and it’s all really exciting, cause it’s all stuff that no one’s seen before, but then as soon as you’ve read it, you’re like, ‘But I want the next season now.’…People should be very, very excited.”
Grimshaw also asked, do the cast members speculate where the story is going, when they’re not filming.
“All the time! And we go out for drinks and stuff, and we just end up just talking about the show, and then because we’re a season ahead, like, we have to really watch what we’re saying because you don’t know who’s listening to your conversation…Because we’ve been on this show from the beginning, like, you forget that it is so popular, and so when you start chatting about, like, possible storylines, you, like, realize, ‘Oh, I should actually keep this quiet. Cause people are gonna think we actually know what’s gonna happen.’ Even though we’re just speculating like everybody else.”
Looks like we have once again a lot to look forward to. We’re still months away from the first episode of Game of Thrones season 7, and Williams is already hyping up the season finale!
