Game Of Thrones star Maisie Williams says the show is coming to it’s natural end.

The hit HBO fantasy drama, in which Maisie plays Arya Stark, will air its eighth and final season in 2019.

Maisie, who has been part of the show since she was 12-years-old, said on Wednesday that the show is ending at the right time.

When host Lorraine Kelly commented that it feels ‘right’ that Game Of Thrones is coming to a close, Maisie said: ‘I feel like this is a good [time].’

But she admitted that she was anxious about not having GOT as her ‘safety blanket’.

Maisie said earlier in the interview: ‘We’re currently filming for the final season which is all a bit strange. Its been my entire career.

‘It’s exciting knowing I’m going to get to do more things. But it’s nerve-wracking because its been my safety net.

‘I juggled it with school for a while, but it was such an intensive schedule. As I went through school and went through my GCSEs my character only got bigger and bigger, so I was home schooled for a while.

‘But it was a strange little time. It was a mixed reaction for sure. It got easier as I got older because now all my friends have jobs or they’re at uni or they have responsibilities.’

Maisie added that her relationship with boyfriend Ollie Jackson helps her stay grounded.

‘I strive to try and live as normal a live as possible,’ she said. ‘I know you can’t always.

‘People always said to me, “your life is gonna change” and I was like, “I don’t really want it to”.

‘There is a way of going through this industry without your life completely changing.’
