Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has admitted she "resented" her character Arya Stark as she went through her teens while making the series.

The actress portrayed the fan-favourite character throughout the HBO fantasy show's eight-season run, though said in a new interview that how Arya was perceived by fans was at odds with how she felt while going through puberty.

Recalling a moment when she was handed a bra in her trailer, Williams told GQ Style: "I think that when I started becoming a woman, I resented Arya because I couldn't express who I was becoming.

"And then I also resented my body, because it wasn't aligned with the piece of me that the world celebrated."

A few years ago, Williams revealed that she felt body shame while portraying Arya, explaining that scenes involving her character disguising herself as a boy in the show's early days made her feel "kind of ashamed".

"Around season 2 or 3, my body started to mature and I started to become a woman, but Arya was still very much like trying to be disguised as a boy," she told Vogue.
