Maisie Williams talks end of Game of Thrones and her relationship with Ollie Jackson
Maisie Williams has admitted that leaving Game of Thrones behind is “nerve-racking”.
The Arya Stark actor is currently filming for the final season of the hit HBO series and is now thinking towards her future career.
Appearing on today’s Lorraine (Wednesday, January 17), the star discussed life after Game of Thrones and how she is “excited” to shape her career and “do things that I want to do”.
However, Maisie confessed the show has been her “safety blanket” for many years, and so approaching the end of the series has definitely been “nerve-racking”.
Maisie also talked about how she balanced her acting career with her education.
“I juggled it with school for a while,” she said. “But it was such an intensive schedule.
“As I went through school and went through my GCSEs my character only got bigger and bigger, so I was home schooled for a while.
“But it was a strange little time. It was a mixed reaction for sure. It got easier as I got older because now all my friends have jobs or they’re at uni or they have responsibilities.”
Maisie continued to talk about how her relationship with boyfriend Ollie Jackson is one of the main things that keeps her grounded.
“I strive to try and live as normal a life as possible. I know you can’t always.
“People always said to me, ‘your life is gonna change’ and I was like, ‘I don’t really want it to’.
“There is a way of going through this industry without your life completely changing.”
Lorraine airs weekdays from 8.30am on ITV.
