Maisie Williams says cost issues and time constraints made it impossible to shoot alternate endings to Game of Thrones.
The 22-year-old actress – who starred as Arya Stark in the HBO series – has rubbished suggestions that alternate endings were shot for the final season for the fantasy series, joking that the show’s creators were busy spending “all the money on dragons”.
“We didn’t [film an alternate ending]. It costs so much money and the schedule was way too tight.”— Maisie Williams
Asked about the rumours surrounding the final season, Maisie told Metro.co.uk: “We didn’t [film an alternate ending]. It costs so much money and the schedule was way too tight. We were spending all the money on dragons.”
Maisie is aware of the negativity surrounding the ending to Game of Thrones, which ran from 2011 until last year.
And the actress – who starred alongside the likes of Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington and Sophie Turner – thinks fans are simply fascinated by the idea of there being an alternate ending to the hit series.
She quipped: “I think people wish we did. But … we didn’t! So, that’s your lot!”
