Maisie Williams: I’m not interested in fame
The ‘Game of Thrones’ star shot to fame playing Arya Stark in the HBO fantasy series but says she is happy if that show is the biggest thing she ever does.
“I still see ignorant comments and feel like I personally have to remove myself because I had a taste of that sort of fame with this show and I made a vow to myself: I do not want that. My agents say things to me like, ‘We’ll raise your profile’, and I don’t really understand what that means because to me it sounds like getting a whole lot more famous, which is something I’m not interested in. If this show is the greatest thing I ever do, I did OK. I didn’t do too bad.” – Speaking to The Observer, she said.
And now filming has wrapped on the programme, the 21-year-old Maisie is enjoying having a chance to “live her life” out of the spotlight.
Maisie earlier admitted she is taking a break from work.
Game of Thrones is about to air its final season and Williams has revealed she is relishing the time far from the busy set.
