Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams has dropped a sizable spoiler for the upcoming season 5, hinting that it will see huge changes for her character Arya Stark.

*Book spoilers ahead*

"We’re coming to the end now, so I don’t know what they’re going to do next year. It’s the end of Arya, as far as anyone knows," she told the Guardian during an interview for her new film Cyber Bully.

Though her words sound ominous, they almost certainly don't signal the death of Arya, who is still very much alive in George R. R. Martin's books.

In fact, she even features in an excerpt from the upcoming Winds of Winter.

Though the HBO show could deviate from the novels, what Williams is probably referring to is the character dropping her identity of Arya Stark and travelling to Braavos to learn to become an assassin.

Game of Thrones season 5 is expected to arrive on HBO and Sky Atlantic in April 2015.
