Maisie Williams shot to international fame, after taking on the role of Arya Stark in Game of Thrones. The HBO series was where she made her professional acting debut. Recently, she has spoken out about growing up in the public eye. Speaking on Fearne Cotton’s Happy Place podcast, she explained that she had felt pressure to pretend “everything is fine” – while she was actually feeling something else altogether.
“It got to the point where I’d be in a conversation with my friends and my mind would be running and running and running and thinking about all the stupid things I’d said in my life, and all of the people that had looked at me a certain way, and it would just race and race and race,” she said.
“I think we can all relate to that – telling ourselves awful things.”
The actor has scooped a huge amount of awards for her performances in Game of Thrones.
This includes the EWwy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama, the Portal Award for Best Supporting Actress – Television and Best Young Actor, and the Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Younger Actor.
She was also nominated for a Primetime Emmy Awards for the category of Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, back in 2016.
Elsewhere on the small screen, Maisie has worked in a whole host of TV shows.
