Maisie Williams started young, and her debut was the HBO’s hit TV series The Game of Thrones as Arya Stark in 2011. Now she is 18 and she realizes that the scripts that time were badly written regarding to her character and she could not understand it then, but now she does. The 18 year old is really busy now, in new upcoming films, like The Forest Of Hands and Teeth, Arrivals, The Devil and The Deep Blue Sea!
She told the UK’s Radio Times: “I didn’t realize when I was younger that women were written so badly, but going further into this career I realized there are a lot of really bad characters, that it’s not common to come across females who aren’t just ‘the girlfriend’,” “Me and Jenna were talking about it,” she explained.
“When you get a script they always include a sentence or two about the character, something like ‘Jason: 36, strong, built, quick, witty’ and a description of his personality. “Then there’s his girlfriend – ‘Sarah: hot, blonde.’ And that’s it! Hot-looking but in a cute way. That’s your character! “You can’t pick and choose everything, but I hope to never have to play a character that is only there to benefit a male lead.”
