What Maisie Williams said

In the interview with The Sunday Times, Maisie said, “I was so lost for so long and I knew that I was, and when I couldn’t pin down what I felt my identity was within that, it brought me a lot of discomfort. Now I feel a lot more comfortable in my own skin. It’s hard to even put myself back there and talk about how tough it was just because I think it’s done.”

She further added how she wants to offer advice to child actors who are also in the same industry as her, and might experience similar pressure under the limelight. “I really dig within myself to try and bring out something that I feel would be really useful. I’ve no idea if I ever have, but I know that at least they could text me or call,” she said.
