Maisie Williams deserves an Emmy for her ‘Game Of Thrones’ spoiler prank


Maisie Williams stunned “The Tonight Show” audience into silence on Monday when she pretended to drop a sensational spoiler about “Game of Thrones.”

Williams, who plays Arya Stark in HBO’s hit fantasy drama, casually dropped what she claimed was a devastating detail about her character’s fate in the show’s eighth and final season during her interview with host Jimmy Fallon.

Her fake reaction to realizing she’d dropped the bombshell was award-worthy:


Of course, it was an April Fools’ prank ― which Williams and Fallon took great delight in revealing after she’d stormed off the set.

Or was it?

The final season of “Game of Thrones” begins April 14.

Maisie Williams surprises fans, crashes watch party
(4/12) SNACKS DONE. We were on our way to surprise our lovely fans!
(5/12) We could hear the party inside so we had to be REALLY quiet!
(7/12) Mark and I devised a cunning plan. He would enter first declaring that they had won the GoT swag (this was a ploy we made up to throw people off the scent) and I would follow after hoping and praying that everyone would actually recognise me.
(8/12) My favourite part is how excited they sound to win the swag, little did they know, I was just around the corner...
(9/12) They had the coolest Game of Thrones decorations, but this was my favourite. My money's on dead, it seems I'm outnumbered.
(10/12) I went there to surprise them with snacks, but when I got there, I found myself trying one of every single snack they had made.
(12/12) Ps. Thanks for the dragon egg cookies, they were THA BOMB
