“Game of Thrones” star Maisie Williams debuted a new look after the series finale.

Her beloved character, Arya Stark, whom she has been portraying for the past eight seasons is a brunette.

Williams described her experience of creating the final season of the HBO fantasy drama.

“It was just really emotional,” she told ET Online. “You can start to get yourself so down on [everything], being like, ‘This is the last time I’m gonna read scripts. This is the last time I’m going to be in this location.’ I got to a point where I had to stop doing that because then I was just going to have a nervous breakdown.”

“I was like so in denial I was one of the last people to wrap,” Williams added.

She noted that other actors got emotional while filming the final season and finale.

“I watched so many people wrap and cry. I had to like, stay out of that emotion because there was so much to do—like, some really difficult scenes to do. And then I wrapped and I was emotional,” the actress recalled to the outlet. “I really did feel numb.”

Some people have called for a spinoff show featuring her character. In one of the last episodes, her character is seen killing villain the Night King, causing the other White Walkers to shatter.

“That’s when my numbness came, and then it wasn’t until like a week later that I was like—you know when you’re just doing something and then you drop a spoon? I was like ‘Ahhhhhhh!’ like, overreacting entirely and I just felt like an insane person a little bit,” Williams added.

Another ‘Game of Thrones’ Gaffe

During the finale, which aired on May 19,  two plastic water bottles were seen in one of the scenes. It came just weeks after a Starbucks-style coffee cup showed up in a prior episode.

One bottle was underneath the chair of character Samwell Tarly, hidden next to his left foot. The other was underneath the chair of Lord Davos Seaworth, visible between his right foot and that of Brienne of Tarth.
