“Game of Thrones” star Arya Stark grew up in front of the camera, and she recently revealed she felt “horrible” and “conscience” about her body image while shooting the hit series.
Maisie said, “Maybe 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.”
The British actress said the methods used to disguise her developing body and hide her womanhood made her ashamed of her figure, “They would also put this strap across my chest to flatten any growth that had started, and I don’t know, that just felt horrible for six months of the year,” she said.
Williams started playing the tomboyish young girl Arya, character when she was just 14. She was 22 at the time HBO ended the series. “I had really short hair and they constantly covered me in dirt and shaded my nose so it looked really broad and I look, like, really manly,” she said. “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.”
