8 Things To Know About Maisie Williams



Maisie is known for her brilliant portrayal of Arya Stark on GOT but there’s so much more to her than that one role. She’s a talented young actress, a hilarious and smart girl and a promising young entrepreneur. She’s been in other TV shows and starred in movies, she frequents fashion events, and she started a project called Daisy that is aimed at bringing young talented people together for creative projects and collaborations.

Maisie Williams’ Age

Maisie Williams is 22 years old. She was born in Bristol on April 15, 1997. She’s the youngest of four children in her family. She has two brothers named James and Ted and a sister called Beth. Maisie isn’t actually her given name, it’s a nickname based on a character in The Perishers comics.

Maisie Williams and Game Of Thrones

While Maisie did her best to portray the character of Arya as true to the original as possible she has admitted that she hasn’t read the books. She went to the trouble of learning how to do everything left-handed (like writing and sword fighting) because her mother (who read the books) said Arya’s left-handed, but she just can’t bring herself to read them because of all the gory details. She also can’t really watch the gory scenes on the screen too. It’s quite funny considering she’s on the show, isn’t it?

Maisie Williams’ Height

Maisie is quite a short girl. She’s 155 cm tall, which makes her the shortest of the GOT cast after Peter Dinklage. She’s followed by Emilia Clarke who’s only ever so slightly taller than her at 157cm.

Maisie Williams’ School Dropout

Maisie’s acting debut happened on GOT when she was 12 and by 14 she has dropped out of school in order to pursue her acting career full time. This might surprise you but her parents fully support her in that decision. They agree that it’s a unique opportunity to travel the world and meet new people. Plus, she’s 22 now and seems to be doing fine, not only with acting but with her business endeavors too.

Maisie Williams’ Boyfriend

Maisie has been dating Reuben Selby for a while now. He’s a co-founder of Contact Agency, a modeling agency that is described as the “platform for the next generation of models.”

Rueben also co-founded a creative agency called Cortex Agency. On their website, it says it’s “a new-gen creative agency specially curating multi-disciplinary campaigns, editorials & events for brands”. While Maisie and Ruben’s relationship has been kept quite low-key, he did attend Sophie Turner’s wedding as Maisie’s date. So we think it’s fair to say it’s not casual dating, it’s more of a relationship they’ve got going.

Maisie Williams’ Films

You probably know Maisie best from playing Arya in Game of Thrones, but that’s only one of many things she’s done. She also appeared on Doctor Who and she’s starred in quite a few films too. The Falling, Then Came You, Cyberbully, Stealing Silver, The Book Of Love are just a few you should definitely check out if you like Maisie Williams.

Maisie Williams’ Tattoos

Maisie has 6 small tattoos on her body. The most famous one is probably the date 07.08.09 tattooed on her arm in red ink. It’s a matching tattoo she has with her BFF Sophie Turner to commemorate the date they were cast in GOT. She also has a tattoo on the back of her neck that says “no one”, a tattoo that says “little rascal” on her arm, and the number 79 on her inner arm, all of them in red ink. She also has a small sunflower on her upper arm, small Japanese Kanji on her ankle that apparently means “adventure”, and 4 Japanese symbols on her ribcage for ikigai, which is roughly translated as “reason for being”.

Maisie Williams’ Net Worth

Masie Williams’s net worth is estimated at $6 million. Having spent almost a decade working on Game of Thrones, appearing in BBC’s hit show Doctor Who and having a whole bunch of short and feature films under her belt we only expect that number to grow. Maisie is only 22 and we’re excited to see what life has in store for her.
