The Bristol-born star spoke to a very excitable Phillip Schofield, 54, and his This Morning co-host Holly Willoughby, 35, about the penultimate season of Game of Thrones, which wrapped up filming earlier this month.
“This year it really heats up,” Maisie smirked. "This year everyone gets their trials and their tribulations. Particularly for Arya there's some high points and there's some low points.”
But the 19-year-old also suggested that she’s looking forward to bidding farewell to the Emmy Award-winning series, which comes to an end after its eighth season in 2018.
“It’s really strange, but it’s exciting,” she beamed. “I haven’t been able to give my all to anything else, so it’s exciting to think I can do whatever I want without any ties.”

Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams
Maisie was cast in Game of Thrones when she was just 12-years-old after being plucked form her dance school as a child.
“My second audition was Game of Thrones,” she told the duo, before explaining that the drama got in the way of her dancing. “I don’t [dance] half as much as I want to and it was always my love.”
However, Maisie previously indicated that she will survive season seven during a recent interview with Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio One.
“The end of this series is great,” she told the former The X Factor judge. “It makes me very excited for the series after! People should be very excited."

Until then, she’ll be starring in Netflix’s groundbreaking new movie iBoy, a gritty sci-fi following the violence of London gang crime.
Maisie confessed that promoting her latest venture has been more fun than Game of Thrones.
“It’s nice to be using more familiar language,” she explained. “Talking about iPhones than swordfighting and horses.”
Game of Thrones returns to Sky Atlantic and HBO this summer while iBoy is available to stream on Netflix from this Friday.
