Maisie Williams Accidentally Drops Major 'Spoiler' About The Game Of Thrones Season Finale

It's got to the point now where we're literally counting down the days until the final season of Game of Thrones gets released on 14 April. We're only just containing ourselves and when a 'spoiler' is announced we're trying our very best to steer clear of it - we've got this far and the end is near, nothing is ruining this moment for us.

Well, unless you saw Maisie Williams on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon when she nearly - just very nearly - messed everything up. But then we remembered what day it was yesterday...

The 21-year-old actress was promoting HBO's Game of Thrones when she was asked to share a teeny, tiny spoiler and oh boy did she. This was a death-level spoiler.

At first she was having none of it, explaining to host Jimmy Fallon (would you believe): "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, 44, kept pushing: "You couldn't give one little spoiler, one little hint - a crumb is all I ask," before switching to a British accent adding: "M'lady, just a crumb is all I'm asking for."

And she cracked, or so we thought she did, 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..."

OH. GOOD. LORD. SHIT. THE. BED.

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.

The show's host then explained that they would re-shoot the question, asking the audience to applaud before digging for hints once again.

But Maisie had other ideas because 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 the curtain back to reveal the grinning actress and they both shouted in unison 'APRIL FOOL'S'. Bastards.

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."

What a pair of sneaky devils.

Game of Thrones will kick off on 14 April for the very last instalment of HBO's incredible epic fantasy series - finding out who lives... And, of course, who dies.

We could go on all day about what we reckon might happen but we'll leave the speculating to everyone in LADbible's Westeros Posting group on Facebook. You're welcome.
