Game Of Thrones star Maisie Williams admits she's insecure about her appearance

She was the ripe age of 12 when she landed her first industry-breaking acting role in popular series Game of Thrones.

And despite her camera-confident appearance, Maisie Williams, now 20, has revealed she doesn't completely love herself or have it all figured out just yet.

Speaking to Stellar, the actress known for her role as Arya Stark in Game of Thrones said: 'I'd be lying if I said I never worried about the way I look.'

However, Maisie added she didn't let her insecurities control the way she went about her life day to day.

 'I like to try and live my life with the way I look not controlling my every move. As soon as you go down that path, which I get dragged into every now and then, it ends up driving you a little bit mental,' she told the publication.

Later in the interview, the star went on to explain that she's spent time trying to discover herself as an actress.

Elaborating, Maisie divulged that she has now learnt to steer clear of worrying about her vanity, as a means of avoiding going 'insane'.

Having earned herself an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress, the star is aware with Game of Thrones' final episode inevitably hit screens, she will need to focus on her next move.

But it's full steam ahead for the talented British actress, having landed roles in both Doctor Who and hotly anticipated X-Men movie The New Mutants.

On her upcoming flicks, where she will portray Ashildr and Rahne respectively, the star applauded her characters for being written as substantial people - not just 'eye candy'.

On the back of the conversation, the bright-eyed and bright-minded star expressed her thoughts on a shift in Hollywood's perspective.

Explaining that in the past, looks were crucial acting requirements, Maisie shared that she believed stereotypes have changed and she feels she can now have a career in the cut-throat industry without the focus being so heavily on her appearance.

On how she keeps fame external from her everyday life, Maisie confessed that she leads a very ordinary life outside of acting, adding that her friends and family aren't fussed by her Hollywood status.
