Game Of Thrones' Maisie Williams Dyed Her Hair Pink So She Could Take A Break From Acting

Game Of Thrones' Maisie Williams revealed she is taking a break from acting - by taking a trip the hairdressers. The 21-year-old actress - who plays Arya Stark in the hit HBO series - confessed her step back from the industry is one of the reasons behind her gorgeous pink new hairstyle. "I guess, subconsciously, I dyed it because I didn't want to work,” the star said, speaking to Rolling Stone. “It's a pretty good way of stopping that. And it just feels so good, so me. I've battled my whole adolescence with trying to put a stamp on my appearance, but also be a blank canvas as an actor." Maisie, who made her acting debut on the series, has been a part of GoT since 2011.

The star - who appeared on the magazine cover with her on-screen sister Sansa Stark - also cutely confessed that her and Sophie Turner were friends from the moment they met. “I thought Sophie was the coolest thing I’d ever seen,” Maisie said. “I get why they do chemistry reads, because when it’s right, it’s so right. Like, we’re best friends. And they could see that all those years ago, and it must have been real magic watching these two girls have the best time together.” Sophie also said in the chat that she is currently on medication for anxiety and depression. "I still experience it, but I had therapy, I’m on medication, and I feel so much better. The fact that I spoke to someone changed my life," Sophie said.

In the interview, Maisie also dropped the f-bomb when speaking about the delayed release of X-Men spin-off The New Mutants, saying: "Who knows when the fuck that's gonna come out?" The latest issue of Rolling Stone is out now. Game Of Thrones returns next month.
