Game of Thrones Star Teases Season 7 and Talks About Speculating Like Everyone Else
Game of Thrones returns for its seventh season this year. Now, Arya Stark actress Maisie Williams has teased that the season is “so exciting,” especially the finale. She also spoke about how she doesn’t know the fate of her character and only speculates like everyone else.
“It’s so exciting, particularly the end of this series. it’s just a great finale. It makes me very excited for the series after,” she told BBC Radio 1 (via GamesRadar). That’s likely a reference to Season 8, which is believed to be the hit fantasy show’s last.
Asked how much she knows about what’s coming up next for Game of Thrones and her character specifically, Williams said, “None.” In fact, Williams said basically none of the actors know what’s going to happen next.
“I make educated guesses and we try and get answers and bits of information and knowledge from writers but they keep it very close to their chest,” she said.
“Cause I’m like one season ahead of everyone else. I get the scripts and it’s all really exciting because it’s all stuff no one’s seen before,” Williams added. “But then as soon as you read it, you’re like, ‘But I want the next season now, and the next one, and the next one.’ People should be very, very excited.”
Williams went on to say that it’s not uncommon for her and her castmates to go out to public places and talk about what they think is going to happen next. But if you happen to overhear her, don’t expect the information to necessarily be accurate. Williams and her co-stars are only “speculating like everybody else,” she said.
Asked if it’s exciting not to know what’s in store for Game of Thrones, Williams said it is, but quickly pointed out that she wonders about her character, “‘Am I gonna die?'”
Game of Thrones Season 7 is supposedly going to premiere this summer, though HBO has not yet announced an official premiere date.
Although Game of Thrones may wrap up with Season 8, there is a chance that HBO will produce a prequel.
