Maisie Williams Reveals She "Resented" Playing 'Game of Thrones' Character Arya While She Was Growing Up

Years after Game of Thrones has ended, star Maisie Williams has finally opened up about how she really felt about playing the role of Arya Stark.

In a recent interview with British GQ, the young actress spoke about how much she “resented” the character while she grew up in front of millions across the globe. She spoke about joining the HBO show at 12 years old and how that affected her as a child. She shared,

“I think that when I started becoming a woman, I resented Arya because I couldn’t express who I was becoming. And then I also resented my body, because it wasn’t aligned with the piece of me that the world celebrated.”

When asked which part the show she misses, Williams took a moment to think and eventually responded with, “Can I say none of it?” She continues to explain, “I don’t think it’s healthy [to miss it], because I loved it. I look at it so fondly, and I look at it with such pride. But why would I want to make myself feel sad about the greatest thing that ever happened to me? I don’t want to associate that with feelings of pain.” Williams also confirms that she has not decided if she will ever go back to reprise her role as Arya Stark,

“I’m not saying it would never happen, but I’m also not saying it in this interview so that everyone goes…’The spin-off! It’s coming.’ Because it’s not.

It has to be the right time and the right people. It has to be right in the context of all the other spin-offs and the universe of Game of Thrones. It has to be the right time for me.”

Elsewhere in entertainment, a Casper live-action TV series is currently in the works.
