Maisie Williams has admitted she felt “horrible” having to have her breasts strapped down to keep her looking young and “manly” in Game of Thrones.
The actress started playing Arya Stark on the HBO fantasy series when she was 14 and by the time it ended, she was 22.
She told Vogue that her body started to “mature” a couple of seasons into the show.
“But Arya was still very much like trying to be disguised as a boy and I had really short hair and they constantly covered me in dirt and shaded my nose so it looked really broad and I look like, really manly,” she said.
“And they would also put this strap across my chest to flatten any growth that had started, and I don’t know, that just felt horrible for six months of the year.”
Williams added that she “felt kind of a bit ashamed for a while,” and is now enjoying looking more feminine.
