British actress Maisie Williamsknown for her role as Arya Stark in Game Of Thronesrevealed this week in an interview with the magazine GQ UK that she had come to hate her famous character, yet one of the most beloved of the hit HBO series.
Maisie Williams, who was thirteen when cast in the role, went through adolescence and puberty in front of the cameras. An unpleasant feeling that made her feel a certain grudge against Arya, she says:
“I think when I became a woman, I started to hate Arya, because I couldn’t express who I was becoming. And I also came to hate my body, because it didn’t fit with what the world was celebrating about me.”
The actress, soon to appear ina mini-series by Danny Boyle on the Sex Pistolsis not nostalgic for Game Of Thrones. “I don’t think it’s healthy, because I liked it so much [cette série]. I have a lot of affection for the series, and pride. Why would I want to be sad thinking about the best thing that ever happened to me? I don’t want to associate this memory with pain.”
Maisie Williams does not close the door to a Arya spin-offalthough this project is not in the pipes, she assures: “I am not saying that it could never happen, but I am not saying it in this interview, because everyone else will to excite on a spin-off that doesn’t exist.”
