Maisie Williams has promised 'Game of Thrones' will ''go out with a bang''.

The 20-year-old actress is currently shooting her final scenes as Arya Stark in the HBO drama series, and though she's sad the fantasy saga is coming to an end after eight seasons, she's reassured fans the remaining episodes are ''wonderful''.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz at the London premiere of her latest movie 'Early Man' on Sunday (14.01.18), Maisie said: ''I'm sad that it's coming to an end but this series is so wonderful and I'm so proud of it.

''The story is just so good that we're going to go out with a bang for sure!''

It was recently confirmed fans of the hit show - which also stars Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Kit Harington and Gwendoline Christie - will have to wait a whole extra year to find out the fate of their favourite characters when the final six episodes will be screened.

HBO said in a statement: '''Game of Thrones' will return for its six episode, eighth and final season in 2019.''

Directors David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik are confirmed to return for season eight.

The hit show - based on the series of fantasy novels by George R. R. Martin chronicling the battle of power for the Iron Throne - has seen a series of shock deaths of major characters over the past seven seasons, along with some surprise returns.

Emilia, who plays Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen, recently revealed that she and the rest of the cast have been banned from posting any sneak peeks from the set on social media.

She admitted: ''We have a very strict social media ban this year because people need to stop spoiling it for everyone. It's really frustrating.''
