Fans have been eagerly anticipating the final season of ‘Game of Thrones’ for what feels like forever by now, but for the show’s cast, it’s all completed, with the final scenes in the can last month.

When the HBO epic fantasy series finished, one of its most established stars, Maisie Williams, made sure she bagged herself a very special souvenir – her character Arya Stark’s brown leather jacket.

“I can imagine it being something that I’m like, ‘Oh, I was on this show once upon a time and this was the jacket I wore’. And my grandkids being like, “Please stop’,” she joked to BBC Radio 1’s Nick Grimshaw on Friday (August 10th).

The 21 year old English star, who has starred in ‘Game of Thrones’ ever since its very first episode in 2011 when she was just 14. Grimshaw also asked her about what it was like to finally say goodbye to the series that made her world-famous.

“I cried a lot,” Williams said. “Get the Kleenex out. I bawled and I tried to do a speech… I got back to my trailer and I was like, 'I can't even remember what I just said’. I probably just whittled on for, like, half an hour… I grew up with these people. It really is like cutting an arm off.”

While plot twists and spoiler are being kept firmly under wraps, Williams recently hinted at the possible direction of season eight next year when she captioned a picture at her last day of filming with the words “last woman standing”.
