Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams chose the right day to slip up and drop a huge spoiler on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Keeping a secret is hard to do especially when millions and millions of people around the world want to know that secret. That pretty much sums things up for the cast of Game of Thrones as they try not spoil the show’s final season. Unfortunately, it appeared as though Maisie Williams cracked during her spot on The Tonight Show.
Williams should be used to fan pressure over spoilers by now. The Arya Stark actress has been on board since day one of Game of Thrones back in 2011. But maybe the past eight years finally caught up with her just weeks away from the start of the eighth and final season.
Or maybe she found herself in a false sense of security by Jimmy Fallon. It was Williams’ first appearance on The Tonight Show. Fallon typically doesn’t press his guests for info and spoilers. The same can’t be said for Jimmy Kimmel who routinely looks for Marvel and Game of Thrones stars to mess up during his interviews.
Then again, Maisie Williams isn’t the type to be tricked or to lose her wits when on stage. Maybe there was another reason she dropped such a massive spoiler. See for yourself:
Be honest, did you see that twist coming? Watching it live then perhaps you knew what was coming, but waking up today and seeing the clip could bring a completely different reaction. Whether it is anger, disappoint, or relief depends on what kind of Game of Thrones fan you are.
Last Night On warned you about Williams’ interview on The Tonight Show. Fallon was either going to have the actress in on a bit or use April Fool’s Day to his advantage. Looks like we were right!
Spoilers are an odd thing. So many fans are desperate to get their hands on spoilers and find out what will happen before an episode airs. It is a weird level of fan dedication and one that the cast, producers, and writers all understand.
We’ll see how Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington do in avoiding spoilers when they arrive on late night shows later this week. Game of Thrones season eight comes to HBO on April 14 so there is still time to find, or avoid, spoilers. Good luck!
