There are many benefits to living in the future. It turns out that one of the best is that when an actor on a juggernaut of a television show wants to watch the premiere of said show with her fans, all she has to do is start a Twitter conversation.

Little did the unsuspecting party-goers realize: the surprise was Maisie herself!

You can see more of the party over at Vanity Fair!
