Maisie Williams has become the latest Game Of Thrones actor to reveal their reaction to the divisive ending of the hit HBO series.
But unlike Charles Dance, the actress has insisted that she was overjoyed with the conclusion. Well, at least she was happy with the ending for her character Arya Stark.
“I was so happy with my ending, and it was just a beautiful end to a decade of my life, and I just couldn’t be happier with it … We had such a blast - we loved it,” Williams told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Wednesday.
Williams also revealed the major upside to not being involved in Game Of Thrones anymore. She no longer has to be concerned about revealing spoilers for the show.
“It is so nice. I used to walk down the street, and every single person that would recognise me, the only thing they’d ever want to know is, ‘Tell me what happens to the next season.’ ‘Did Jon Snow really die?’ ‘Are you going to be blind forever?!’”
“All of these things that I just couldn’t talk about. Now, I guess people actually just ask me like, ‘What did you think of the final season?’
That question was asked to Dance, who played Tywin Lannister up until the fifth season of Game Of Thrones, just earlier this week, and he had a much more brutal response than Williams. He even said he would sign the petition that demanded the last season was rewritten by “competent writers.”
“If there was a petition, I would sign it. I continued to watch the whole series even after I’d been killed off in the lavatory, because I just thought it’s a fantastic television show, you know.”
“There were storylines [where] I wanted to know what was going to happen to these people! I know that the finale satisfied a lot of people. It also disappointed a lot of people, and I’m afraid I am in the latter camp. For the whole thing to end up as a committee, I just thought, ‘Hmm, no.’ I would say I was somewhat underwhelmed.”
