Maisie Williams Won April Fools With This Heart-Stopping Moment


OMG! Our hearts 100% stopped. Maisie Williams appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and pulled off an epic April Fools’ Day joke that had us seriously feeling for the actress. 

With the season 8 premiere of Game of Thrones just weeks away on April 14, fans are dying for any and ever bit of information on the final season. 

Jimmy Fallon asked the actress to share her top five Arya Stark moments and she dropped what viewers thought was a major spoiler.

After recalling scenes such as seeing Arya’s dad’s head get cut off and teaming up with sister Sansa to finally dispatch Littlefinger, Maisie revealed that Arya dies in the second episode of the upcoming season.


After letting the moment slip, Maisie froze and the audience gasped as Fallon appeared to also be shocked. She then left the stage, leaving the audience and viewers in disbelief before returning to exclaim alongside the late-night host “April fools!”

Watch back the epic moment in the video above. 

The final season of Game of Thrones premieres on HBO on April 14.
