Jon Snow is back and everyone on the sets, from the cast and production had lied to the world about Jon’s fate and his return on the show. Some of the characters did not even know themselves that Jon will make a return on the show as Kit had convinced everyone on the set that he is leaving for sure.
But Maisie Williams, the actress who portrays Arya Stark on the show admits that she did not feel bad about lying to people about Snow’s return. Maisie Williams who had told people that Jon is not coming back, posted a tweet saying, “Trolled” on Twitter.
She talks about the fact that once you say that you don’t know and you can’t say then people will know about it and says that, “If you say you can’t say then people will know that he is, and you just can’t say. I took it upon myself to lie to absolutely every journalist, every fan and everyone that came up to me. It was really funny because fans would come up to me and be like, ‘I know you can’t talk about it but is Jon Snow dead?’, all giggly and I’d be like, ‘Yeah he is dead’.They would be shocked and I’d watched them be like, ‘I don’t really want a picture with you anymore’. It was mean.”
Though Kit Harrington thought it was necessary to apologize to people after lying to everyone, Maisie said that she thought deceiving people was fun. She said, “Don’t apologise! I think that is the fun of it. Why would I say, ‘Who knows?’ when I can totally lie and catch everyone off guard?”
Maisie has got this mischievous side to her which we absolutely love.
