‘Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams On Avoiding Social Media
Arya Stark may appear to be an unbreakable warrior on Game of Thrones, however, the entertainer that plays her is similarly as human as the rest of us.
Maisie Williams was 11 years of age when she was given a role as Arya Stark on “Game of Thrones”.
She felt it was “impossible” to deliberately ignore negativity on social media as she was growing up. She revealed that social media nasty comments and rude trolls had made her hate herself.
The now 22-year-old star disclosed that she needed to isolate herself from the constant feedback.
She even engaged her mother to screen social media feeds for her, says Business Insider.
“I think when people are on social media they feel like whatever they write, no one’s gonna read it. But they do. And it will affect them for a really long time.”
Williams kept on saying that she has battled with self-hatred throughout her life.
