Maisie Williams is set to become a huge star over the next few years, thanks to her performances as Arya Stark in the hit HBO fantasy television series Game of Thrones. In the show, Maisie's character Arya has very short hair but the young actress recently showed off her long flowing locks.
While many women would wear wigs for roles needing short hair, Maisie decided that it would be better for her to just cut her hair off, saving time getting ready for the role. It has now been revealed that Maisie likes to wear extensions for events, as she does miss her long hair.
An insider explained, "She [cut her hair] for the show. She just committed. She's a girl, so she'd love to have her long hair back, but it's her job, so she sucked it up."
Meanwhile, Maisie Williams herself previously said, "They asked me if I wanted to get my hair cut, and my first reaction was 'No way.' Then I was thinking about it, and people on the internet had said, 'Oh, I don't think she'll get her hair cut. She's too young. It's a big decision to make.' I just sort of wanted to prove them wrong."
Game of Thrones season three is set to premiere on HBO in the US on Sunday, March 31 and on Sky Atlantic in the UK on Monday, April 1.
