Maisie Williams has certainly had an interesting upbringing. She’s pretty much done most of her growing up so far on Game of Thrones, having joined the cast when she was just about 13 years old. She’s turning 18 on Wednesday, which obviously means she’s got the world figured out. You see, we all rag on teens, but they know what’s up and it’s actually us dumb adults have no idea what life is all about.
“People think we’re fucking stupid and we don’t know anything about anything. It’s really degrading. I get a lot of adults who are like, ‘You don’t know shit,’ and it’s like, ‘You don’t know shit. You have no idea what it’s like to be 17 years old.’”
I mean, to be honest, I kinda agree with her in a way. Teenagers drive me up the wall and I can’t bear their stupidity… and yet, I logically know that we were all 17 once, and we were all just as stupid. So Maisie is right – we don’t know shit, because we’ve blocked a lot of that experience out with, you know, all the years of life that have happened afterwards.
Oh, also, don’t make Maisie a role model – she’s not really into it, though she knows it’s likely going to happen anyway:
“Whether I like it or not, I’ve become influential to people. I don’t wanna be liked just because I’m pretty. That’s f–king boring, and I’m not that. Lots of young people in the industry try to play it cool, but it just makes them look like arrogant dickheads. I’d much rather be liked because people realize that I’m standing up for myself.”
Alright, Maisie Williams is pretty great, right?
