Maisie Williams Is Worried Her Looks Will Hurt Her Post-‘Game Of Thrones’ Acting Career

Date:

Maisie Williams is afraid of getting typecast because of her looks.

Maisie Williams has played Arya Stark on Game of Thrones for almost half of her life. It was her first professional acting job, and it has earned her an abudance of fans and praise, including including five consecutive Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series nominations at the Screen Actors Guild Award. But soon, she will be looking for a new acting job as HBO’s mega-hit only has six episodes left.

In an interview with the Irish Times, Williams expressed concern about her post-Game of Thrones acting career. “It’s only now I’m starting to realize the characters that are available to me because of the way I look and the characters that aren’t available to me,” she said. “It’s a very shallow industry. And I don’t look like someone who is cast in roles that are, well, sexualized.” Williams added, “Don’t get me wrong, I’m completely in awe of Hollywood’s leading ladies. I love looking at those totally jaw-droppingly beautiful women. But I think it’s sad that you only get to see one type of beautiful on screen.”

Sometimes being beautiful or handsome is not enough.
