Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has said she is ''so happy'' with the show's ending and admits it was "just a beautiful end to a decade of my life".

The 23-year-old actress,  who played Arya Stark in the hit fantasy series, said she "couldn't be happier" with the finale, despite fans' reservations about how the story played out.

Speaking on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, she said: ''We had such a blast. We loved it. I was so happy with my ending, and it was just a beautiful end to a decade of my life.

"I couldn't be happier with it, honestly. I used to walk down the street and every single person that would recognise me, the only thing they'd ever want to know is like, 'Tell me what happens in the next season' like 'Did Jon Snow really die? Are you going to be blind forever?' All things I just couldn't talk about.''
