Maisie Williams opens up about her most difficult part of Game of Thrones role

Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has opened up about one of the toughest challenges about starring in the TV fantasy sensation.

The HBO hit came to an end this year, and starred Maisie from day one, when she was 11 years old.

She played the fierce Arya Stark, a little girl with the heart and ferocity of a warrior. The story saw her transformation from frustrated child to powerful, deadly woman.

Despite the character's huge popularity with fans, Maisie has revealed that filming for the show came with particular difficulties, especially as she was going through puberty for a lot of the series' runtime.

Chatting candidly with Vogue , the 22 year-old spoke about the lengths that the production teams went to in order to ensure she fitted the appearance of the part.

Maisie said: "Around season two or three 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, sand shade my nose so it looked really broad and I looked really manly…

"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 kind of felt ashamed for a while.

"In this new phase of my style it's nice to look more feminine and have a real waistline, and, you know, embrace the body that I have."
