'''Margaret Constance "Maisie" Williams''' (born April 15, 1997) is a British actress. Her only role so far outside of school theater has been as Arya Stark on the {{Creator/HBO}} series ''Series/GameOfThrones''. Her standout performance has received considerable acclaim, especially in light of her rather short resume, mixed with the extremely heavy material and experienced actors she's had to work with. In March 2013, it was announced she will star in the upcoming SciFi ActionAdventure movie ''We Are Monsters''. She was also announced to play the lead role in the indie silent film ''Corvidae'' ([[http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/corvidae-short-film-starring-maisie-williams look at its indiegogo entry here]]) and is rumored to be playing Ellie in a live-action film of ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs''.

!Tropes
* DawsonCasting: Starting in series 4, once Maisie hit puberty.
* DyeingForYourArt: She got her hair cut short for the show's second season. She also learned to use a sword with her left hand, as Arya is a leftie (Maisie herself is right-handed). The producers offered to make Arya right-handed in the show, but Maisie herself insisted she remain a leftie, knowing how much the fans would want to see it.
* OneOfUs: After participating in a ''Series/GameOfThrones'' panel at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, she later joined the crowd at Comic-Con, wearing a ComicBook/SpiderMan mask [[http://www.buzzfeed.com/elliewoodward/maisie-williams-managed-to-go-unnoticed-at-comic-con-thanks#4bx3ssm so she could tour the convention floor without being recognized.]]
* ShipperOnDeck: Supports Arya/Gendry, mostly because she has a crush on Joe Dempsie, who plays Gendry.
* SuppressedMammaries: Is about 4-5 years older than her character in Series/GameOfThrones, and thus is padded down to look younger. Compare pictures of her in the show with those of her at the premieres or conventions.
