Maisie Williams Doesn't Want To Be A Rom-Com Star
And we don't want her to be, either.
By Lauren Valenti
As we suspected, Maisie Williams is just as badass as her Game of Thrones character Arya Stark and she intends to stay that way. During an interview with HuffPost Live, the 17-year-old, whose voice was hoarse from a long weekend at Glastonbury, was asked if she'd like to play a normal teenager. You know, one that's not a sword-wielding adolescent in Westeros. Her answer was simple:
"I'll never play the normal teenager," she answered. "I hope I'd be playing these badass, strong female characters for a long time because that's what I enjoy."I'm never really going to be the romantic lead because that's just not really who I am."
Williams might be typecasting herself, but when said demographic is fierce, independent young women, we're totally on board.
Williams recently made her film debut in action-thriller Heatstroke, out in theaters now. Watch the entire interview, here:
