Heads up, “Game of Thrones” fans!
During the fantasy show’s panel at the SXSW (South by Southwest) Festival in Austin, Maisie Williams may have dropped a huge spoiler for season 7.
Warning: Spoilers ahead, read at your own risk.
A member of the SXSW audience asked the panel why Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, had returned to her natural blonde hair colour. Suddenly, 19-year-old Williams, who plays Sansa’s sister Arya Stark, said Turner is no longer a redhead because “She’s dead”. This was then followed by an awkward silence from the panel.
However, “Game of Thrones” showrunner David Benioff allegedly told Williams not to worry because the audience “won’t tell anyone”.

While Sansa’s fate is still unknown, Variety reported that Benioff and Dan Weiss have already finished writing a 140-page outline for season 8, which will only have a mere 6 episodes, adding that they “fight over who gets to kill Sansa”.
The highly anticipated “Game of Thrones” season 7 is set to premiere on HBO on 16th July 2017 (Sunday).
