“Game of Thrones” star Maisie Williams is ready for the eighth and final season of HBO’s hugely popular show.
“There’s a lot of death this year,” Williams, who stars as Arya Stark in the series, recently told Entertainment Weekly, adding the final season apparently makes so many references to the first that the 21-year-old decided to rewatch the original season for herself.
“After reading the scripts I went back and watched season 1 again because so much of it refers back to that season. There are so many scenes that will look similar. And also I watched just to remind myself of the arc I’ve taken already. I wanted Arya to go full circle and try for some kind of normalcy like when she was younger,” she told the publication.

Williams also noted that she and actress Sophie Turner's character -- Sansa Stark, Arya’s sister in the series -- have a closer bond in the coming season compared to years past.
