Maisie Williams and Her Mom Wrote Out Their 'GOT' Predictions—and They Were Wrong About Everything

Maisie Williams says that she and her mother predicted which Game of Thrones characters would live and die in the final season and that they were wrong about every prediction. Joe Dempsie, who plays Gendry, also admitted to being curious about the final season before he read the scripts.

What do Reddit addicts and Game of Thrones (opens in new tab) actors have in common? They both spent a lot of time desperately trying to guess what would happen in the show's final season—the actors just happened to find out what actually happens sooner than the Redditors (opens in new tab).

During a recent interview, Maisie Williams, who plays badass assassin Arya Stark on the HBO hit (opens in new tab), admitted that she and her mom took a semi-formalized crack at predicting the show's final season before she got the scripts—and that it didn't go super well.

"I said, 'Let's predict the final series. You call who you think is going to be alive and who you think is going to be dead. So will I.' And we did. And we were both wrong," she said, according to The Sunday Times. (opens in new tab)

Maisie wasn't the only cast member who was excited to see how the series ended. Joe Dempsie, who plays Robert Baratheon's bastard son, Gendry, (opens in new tab) was as excited as fans to find out what role his character will play in the final confrontation.

"At the top of every script there is a cast list for every character involved in that episode. A few of us were tempted to check if we were in the last one," he said. "Look, Gendry's the last surviving blood Baratheon. He's got to have a pretty strong claim. But I don't even trust the fact that I have the answers in my brain. It feels like you're walking around with a secret that the whole world wants to know."

Now, obviously, Maisie and Joe both know how the series ends. The rest of us have to wait until it returns on April 14 to learn anything at all.
