Maisie Williams, 23, has admitted that she and her co-star Kit Harington, who played Jon Snow on the show, were surprised by the plot line of the series finale. Many fans also thought it would be Jon who finally murdered The Night King in the last episode.

I had the best storyline of the last season

Maisie said: “He expected it to go that way, too, and he even said, ‘It was going to go that way. Someone told me in season three that I was going to kill The Night King.’ 

“And then, he read the script, and it was Arya the whole time. (Laughs.)”

She added to The Hollywood Reporter that it “would have been too obvious” for it to be Jon Snow.

Maisie continued: “I’m glad that it was Arya, honestly,” she said. “I think I had the best storyline of the final season.”

The actress is set to star in her first role since the end of Game of Thrones.

She will feature in indie home invasion horror film, The Owners, which sees thieves try to raid a house before descending into chaos.

Maisie said of the experience: “Although being part of a psychological thriller or a horror is always somewhat hyperreal, I did like that we didn’t have any green screens. 

“A lot of the emotions are a lot more realistic and a lot more pared back.”

The Owners director Julius Berg said the casting of Maisie was a simple process.

Casting director Daniel Hubbard, who knows Maisie well, reached out to get her on board.

Julius said: “He has a great connection with many amazing actors from everywhere, especially Maisie Williams,” 

“So we sent the script to her manager in London, and her manager liked it a lot. Then, she sent it to Maisie, and she also liked it a lot.

“So we had a Skype call with Maisie, and I had a great connection with her. It was very easy. 

“After that, we started shooting. It was as simple as that,” he added.

Maisie felt confident starring in an indie film, after seeing her contemporaries do the same.

She explained: “I look up to Robert Pattinson, and I look up to Kristen Stewart. I love what they did.

“I’ve really just been trying to understand what she did so well, the decisions she made and how that really affected the longevity of her career.

 So, yeah, I definitely do look up to the both of them, and yeah, I will be taking notes and following in their footsteps.”

The star is also currently appearing in Two Weeks to Live on Sky One.

The series produced by Sian Clifford is a comic tale of love and revenge.

The Owners is in selected cinemas now and can be streamed online.
