‘Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams Calls Out Hollywood

Date:

calls out sexism in the entertainment .

Despite being one of the most in Hollywood, Maisie Williams is sticking up for what she believes in and calling out casting directors that only audition for “hot piece” .

In a profile in the London Evening Standard, Williams opened up about inequality in parts for men and women actors:

There are a lot of roles that come in that are “the girlfriend” or “the hot piece” in a movie or TV series. That's something I've seen first-hand and read all the time. It will say “Derek: intelligent, good with kids, , really good at this” and then it will say “Sandra: hot in a sort of cute way” — and that's all you get. That's the way your character is described, so going into an audition you are channelling “hot,” which isn't like a person, that's not who a person is. That's what I see and that's what needs to change. I've been lucky enough to play a very great character from a young age, who is a fantastic role model for girls.

Meanwhile, website someladyparts.com, which posts what are unfortunately extremely common sexist for women. A recent posting on the site reads:

Seeking: ‘Perfect girl. 21-25. Strictly Blond. Tall. Model Look. topless on top of [ character] … No Nipples.'

Maisie Williams, the actor known for playing one of ‘Game of Thrones' leading characters, recently wrapped production on the upcoming movie ‘The Falling', a film about sexual education at an all-girls school in the 1960s.
