Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on Game of Thrones, recently spoke to Timeout London and teased a ‘huge cliffhanger’ for the upcoming season of the show. Here’s an excerpt from the article:
‘It’s just kind of tumbling now,’ she tells us. ‘We’ve come to the climax and it’s rolling down to the end. It’s exciting. I really felt like at the end of last season everything was set up for how it was going to end. Every character came to a little junction in their lives. Now we’re all going to crash down together to however this show ends.’
What else can we expect? ‘A huge cliffhanger,’ she laughs.
Williams also revealed that Game of Thrones cast members who make it to the final season (8) may end up getting matching tattoos:
“There are rumours, that if you make it from season one to season eight there’s a tattoo that we all get. We’re all waiting to see if we do make it. I was lucky enough to be in season one, even the pilot episode. If I do make it to season eight I will get it. It would be rude not to!”
The 19 year old actress also reflected on Game of Thrones ending in 2018, calling it ‘scary’ and ‘exciting’ at the same time:
“I’ve felt restricted at times in my career so far. Restricted in my own life and my career, because there’s six months of the year every year that are taken up shooting this TV show. I don’t mean restricted in a negative way. It’s just pretty honest. It’s quite exciting now ‘Game of Thrones’ is coming to an end because it means I can do whatever I want. If I want to go away for three years and travel the world I can. I can do anything. I can financially do whatever I want to do and physically will not be tied into anything. I’ve never had that.”
