'I felt kind of ashamed for a while': Maisie Williams on facing challenges while filming Game Of Thrones
Although Game Of Thrones (GOT) ended in May, Arya Stark aka Maisie Willaims continues to be one of the most favourite characters for fans of the period drama.
The United Kingdom-born actress recently opened up about her challenges while shooting GOT, in an interview with a leading media organisation. She reportedly said, “Around Season 2 or 3, my body started to mature and I started to become a woman. But Arya was still very much like trying to be disguised as a boy. I had to have really short hair and they’d constantly cover me in dirt and shade my nose so it looked really broad and I looked really manly.”
She added, “They’d also put this strap across my chest to flatten any growth that had started and that just felt horrible for six months of the year, and I felt kind of ashamed for a while.”
However, post the show, Maisie has embraced her body and even opts for experimental ensembles. “With this new phase of my style, it is nice to look more feminine and have a real waistline and just embrace the body that I have,” she reportedly said.
In May, GOT ended with a season finale (S8), which received a mixed response with fans also signing a petition to remake the last season.
