Maisie Williams Says Her 'Game Of Thrones' Fame Affected Her Mental Health

In an interview with the Happy Place Podcast, Maisie Williams of the hit show Game of Thrones says fame affected her mental health. 

Yep, that seems like an appropriate response.

Williams was only 13 when she began playing the role of Arya Stark and she says that being a teenager and playing a major role on a show took a huge toll on her life.

"I still lie in bed at night telling myself all the things I hate about myself," says Maisie. "It's just really terrifying that you're ever going to slip back into it. That's still something that I'm really working on." 

Her co-star Sophie Turner has also revealed that she dealt with mental health issues as well, but Maisie says that the key is to "focus on yourself instead of trying to be who people want you to be."
