The actress, who plays Arya Stark in the hit HBO series, appeared on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon where she talked about the importance of keeping secrets about the show's final season.

Speaking to Fallon, the star seemed to accidentally let slip that her Game of Thrones character Ayra dies in the second episode of the final season before holding her hands to her mouth in shock.
