Game Of Thrones star Maisie Williams has stunned fans with photos from her newest photoshoot, looking completely different to when she starred on the popular TV show.

Sporting bleached eyebrows and a mullet, the actress opened up to digital magazine Porter about how she is challenging traditional beauty ideals.

“I was battling with wanting to look traditionally like what people picture as beautiful and I was getting really lost in that,” she said.

Deciding to cut her hair into a mullet was something that Maisie felt would suit her, even though it was very different to anything she’d done before.

“[It’s] different to everything I’ve been doing but feels right.”

She noticed that once she had the confidence to change her appearance, people have been positive about the change.

The star continued, “I was never getting the ‘Oh my gosh, she looks so beautiful’ [comments] before, but certainly afterwards I was getting ‘Wow, that’s really cool.’”

After playing the character for the span of her teenage years, she is hoping to distance herself from roles similar to Arya Stark.

Describing the character as “hot-headed” she is now looking for roles that will allow her to connect to all facets of her personality.

Reflecting on her experience she adds, “I’d love to leave the crying and screaming for a while.”
