YOUR BODY IS BEAUTIFUL IF:
- you have a body
- that’s it
- you’re beautiful
- you win
You have potentially offended hundreds if not thousands of ghosts.
gifs like these are my favorite part of halloween.

Interrogation with teen acting star Maisie Williams
She shot to fame aged 13 playing feisty and fearless Arya Stark in Game of Thrones, but here Maisie tells Doug Whelan she’s a dancer at heart, as well as a budding dog owner…
What are you promoting today, and why?
My new film Gold. My agent and my mum and I work together to choose scripts and it’s never about the biggest film or the biggest budget, because they’re rarely what’s best. It’s when you have a lovely little film like Gold, with a great cast and a great story and a bit of comedy; that’s really what I’m more interested in. I would much rather be in a film like this than one that’s had shit loads of money thrown at it, but turns out to be a bit of a waste of time.
Plus, being this pale, skinny little English kid, I’m not really leading lady material!
What is the most rewarding thing about your life?
I would say fan reaction. The enthusiasm that people show for something you’ve worked so hard on. It’s the most amazing feeling when they turn around and say ‘yeah I really enjoyed that’. You just feel great and want to say thanks to everyone individually!
Why do you do what you do for a living?
Performing is the only thing I really enjoy, and the only thing I’ve ever seen myself doing. I’m so grateful to have been given the opportunity. And honestly, I don’t know how to do anything else!
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
[Thinks] I… [thinks] … I would stop… I would be MORE different. No, I would ALLOW myself to be more different. Like, so often I pick something up and say “yeah I’m gonna wear that”, then decide no, I’m not.
Like, I decide I’m not cool enough or something. So I would say “just DO it” to myself more often.
What’s the rumour about you that’s bothered you the most?
You know, I’m from this tiny town between Bath and Bristol, and there was this big rumour that I had bought my parents house off them and I was their employer, and basically, I had turned in to this little nightmare! [Laughs]. That was a local rumour! I also read in the newspaper once that I’m leaving Game of Thrones to pursue a college career in America, and that my mum wants me to leave and so on. That’s not bizarre by itself, but it’s just odd reading these completely false articles. I’m like wait, that’s not even my mum’s name!
It’s Sunday night, you’re curling up to watch TV. What’s on your DVR?
I watch a lot of documentaries; I’m a bit obsessed with whale and dolphin documentaries at the moment. Blackfish, things like that. Jesus, it’s just awful, it cuts me up so much. The Cove is about dolphin hunting, and some people argue that cows and so on are treated the same way, but I don’t get it because dolphin meat is so high in mercury that it’s actually quite bad for us.
They’re not just farming those dolphins either, they’re slaughtering them. It’s like us being killed by being pricked by a cocktail stick a thousand times until we die. It’s that equivalent. There are animals mistreated in the entertainment business too; I’m really interested in that at the moment.
Who is your best friend?
I have two, one is called Jadie and the other is called Cassidy. They’re two of the only people I know who just treat me normally and don’t care whether I’m in a fancy lunch with famous people or if I’m just at home in my pyjamas.
Jadie I met when I was seven and we drifted apart for a few years, then recently got really close again, and Cassidy I’ve been friends with throughout secondary school. They are two of the best friends I could ever ask for. I like to live a normal life when I’m not working.
Do you like being well known?
It is exciting when people know who you are when you’re out shopping. It’s quite flattering and they’re always so lovely. But it’s also the weirdest thing ever. I don’t think I’ll ever get used to it. It’s overwhelming too. In London, if one person approaches you and there are a lot of people around, then everyone does. Now they’re never nasty or grabby; in America they are sometimes. But still, it’s very strange.
I never want to be rude, but sometimes you wish you could be invisible. It just comes with this career I suppose.
Who is your hero?
It’s probably my brother James. He’s 23 and he’s doing amazingly at uni and he does crazy body art, and he’s also in a relationship. He goes to all these festivals and speak-easy nights where everyone gets up and tells stories. He does so much and he’s so inspirational and he’s never like ‘oh I’m so stressed’ or any of that.
Whenever I think, ‘oh I’ve got to go to Dublin and do this press wah wah wah’, I just think of James, who does something new every day. I would love to be like that, to do one thing that scares you every day.
What makes you emotional?
Love stories, romantic comedies, things like that. I get so attached and I just bawl at the end. I don’t ever want to be in love though, that just looks like pain. I couldn’t ever be in a romantic role either. I just watch them.
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
I’ll be living in London. I’ll be dancing a lot more; rehearsing for something, a really exciting project that’s like a great script and a great director. Dancing is what I always wanted to do before Game of Thrones came along and kind of took over.
There are so many things I want to do and I always feel like I’m running out of time. People laugh when I say that. But it’s a nice way to be because it inspires you to do more. So I’ll be keeping busy. And I will have a dog.
