Game Of Thrones’ Maisie Williams lets slip Ayra Stark DIES in the second episode of season eight – before revealing spoiler is an April Fool’s Day joke


GAME Of Thrones star Maisie Williams accidentally let slip that Arya Stark DIES in the final series of the hit HBO show.

Speaking about life on the show, Maisie said: “During shooting the final days were really emotional, saying goodbye to all of the cast.

“Because when I found out that Arya died in the second episode, I was -,” before quickly stopping herself.

The British star then gasped in horror and put a panicked hand over her mouth.

She then frantically asked: “Is this live? We can edit that out, right?”

Looking at the studio audience, she added: “They’re still gonna tweet about it. I’m really sorry.”

Trying to reassure the actress the show was pre-recorded and could be cut, Jimmy said: “We can edit it out, don’t worry about it.”

Maisie then looked moments from tears and quickly ran offstage.

Jimmy then went to check on the actress before they both emerged from the curtain and shouted: “April Fool’s.”

Thankfully it was all an April Fool’s Day prank

The prank came after Game of Thrones fans were left convinced Arya would be the last Stark child standing after watching the chilling season 8 trailer.

Fans headed to Twitter to express their disbelief after the teaser showed Jon Snow tell Arya “now it’s just us”.
