Spoiler alert! But actually, more like shame alert for not being up to date on Game of Thrones, because...really?! Get. On. That.

We never thought Game of Thrones could break our hearts more than when Ned Stark (Sean Bean) was brutally decapitated in season one. Or when that terrible, horrible, no good, very bad Red Wedding made us cry all the tears. But then George R. R. Martin and the HBO fantasy series had to go one step further and completely crush us and leave us empty shells of human beings by the time the season five finale ended...when Jon Snow (Kit Harington) was betrayed by his own Night's Watch brothers and stabbed over and over again and left to die in the snow. Nooooo!

But if you ask Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams who had the worst death in the entire series, she'll have a very different answer other than Jon Snow. Click play on the video above now!

Game Of Thrones Finale, Maisie Williams, Best TV Quotes


When E! News sat down with Williams while she was promoting her Always #LikeAGirl campaign, the actress had a very surprising choice for the saddest Game of Thrones death. 

"I think Robb [Richard Madden], because although we'd seen, like, those horrific [deaths], our favorite characters being ripped away from us, I feel like the audience—and myself—were led into such a false sense of security, we couldn't see it coming," Williams exclusively tells E! News. "I guess it was the same with Jon but I guess we're sort of used to that now. I just know we're a bit used to it. I'm so numb to it, my family members being taken away from me."

It also has a little to do with the fact that Arya Stark was at the Red Wedding when her family was mass murdered.

"I was a small part of it. I was shooting the exterior to that whole scene," Williams says. "And when I did finally sit down to watch it, it was wonderful to see what I was reacting to on the inside. Obviously, Arya's thinking the total worst and then when I sat down to watch it the total worst is actually happening."

Do you agree with Williams that Robb Stark was the worst Game of Thrones death ever? Or do you have a different choice? Hit the comments section below to weigh in!
