Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) has spoken about filming “Game of Thrones” season 8 and teased some details in a recent interview. Production has been ongoing for a long time now, but the actress said there’s still a lot of filming left.

As a guest at the Jimmy Kimmel Live show, a video of which has been posted on YouTube, Williams said that filming this time around is a “mammoth task,” and that she still has a lot of work ahead of her. Kimmel tried to prod for some teasers from the actress by pointing out that her busy schedule suggests her character will be alive and well for many episodes. Williams, however, said that they are taking a lot of time to film each episode, so her schedule is not a good indication of how long her character survives.

Having read the script, Williams said that she knows how the show ends. Kimmel then reminded her that according to the president of HBO, they are filming multiple endings to make sure even cast members don’t know how it will end. Williams answered that when she heard that statement, she thought they didn’t have the budget to film multiple fake endings. She also joked that presidents tend to lie sometimes.

As far as the real ending is concerned, there may be shocking moments that viewers should prepare for. Williams said that she was in her bed when she was reading the script and that when she finished, she had to lie down for a while to come to terms with what she had read.

“Game of Thrones” season 8 will have only six episodes. The show is set to premiere sometime in 2019.
