Maisie Williams has said the final season of Game of Thrones will "go out with a bang," but admitted she is sad to see the show come to an end after eight seasons.

The 20-year-old is currently shooting her final scenes as Arya Stark in the HBO drama series and has reassured fans the remaining episodes are ''wonderful."

Speaking at the London premiere of her latest movie Early Man on Sunday, January 14th, 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 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 Clarke, 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.

"It's really frustrating.''
