Although Maisie Williams’ appearance on “Alan Carr: Chatty Man” aired just last night, it was filmed prior to the most recent episode of “Game of Thrones” coming out. So when Maisie accidentally revealed the outcome of last season’s cliffhanger with Kit Harrington’s character, John Snow, the audience was speechless.
“Sorry, spoiler,” Maisie said. “The biggest spoiler that I could’ve possibly said.”
Keeping the secret up until that point apparently wasn’t an issue for the actress. While all cast and crew members are required not to discuss the scripts, Maisie said she felt that telling people she couldn’t discuss it was “boring.” So instead she just flat out lied.
“I took it upon myself to lie to absolutely every journalist, every fan, everyone that came up to me,” she told the audience.
She also spoke about what goes into portraying her character. On the show, Maisie’s character Arya Stark is blind and the actress says wearing the contacts can be painful. “I had this other set for when I was fighting so as I wouldn’t injure anyone,” she admitted. “That was like the thinking behind it, but I still definitely clipped Faye around the head and legs multiple times. And myself.”
Maisie and Alan also created their own reaction GIFs to the various storylines on “Game of Thrones.”
