Who Are Actress Maisie Williams Parents?
Actress Maisie Williams, best known for portraying Arya Stark on Game Of Thrones, was born to her parents Hilary Pitt Frances and Gary Williams. Recently, on The Diary of a CEO podcast with host Steven Bartlett, she gave a glimpse into her traumatic childhood and a fractured relationship with her father.
“Well, I, as a young child before the age of 8, had quite a traumatic relationship with my dad,” Maisie revealed. “I don’t really want to go into it too much because it affects my siblings and my whole family.” She said that her relationship with her dad, “really consumed a lot of my childhood. Ever since I can remember, I’ve really struggled to sleep. And I think a lot of the traumatic things that were happening, I didn’t realize that they were wrong.”
She stated that she did not want to get into specifics out of respect for other family members and their experiences.
Maisie revealed that this is the first time she has spoken openly about her father. She said that her mother was able to “escape” when she was only 4 months old.
She added, “My Mom came to school and picked me up and my siblings were also at secondary school at the time,” said Williams. “Some of them were with Mom and one was not and they were with Dad still. It was the first time that all of the doors were sort of open and all of these things that we were experiencing were out on the table.”
Maisie confessed that even at that moment, she wanted to “fight” and let everyone know things were just fine and say, “‘These things aren’t bad, you’re trying to take me away from my Dad and that’s wrong.’ ”
“I was indoctrinated in a way, I think that’s why I’m obsessed with cults. I get it, I get it, I was in a child cult against my mother… So I really was fighting it in the beginning. My whole world flipped on its head. Even though all these things that I was feeling, I thought ‘oh my God I’m so glad I don’t have to see my Dad anymore.’ It still was like against everything that I had ever known to be true,” the actress explained.
Then speaking about how she feels about her dad today, she said, “I’ve been thinking about this a lot. I’ve been trying to do this thing where I stopped taking things personally … not just when someone’s had a bad day and they push in front of you in the queue. But the big things in life.”
Maisie explained, “What if I said it wasn’t because of me that that happened? If I wasn’t there it would’ve been someone else. It’s not because something is wrong with me that these things happened when I was a child.”
