Young Game of Thrones star overwhelmed by fame

Game Of Thrones star Maisie Williams is struggling to cope with the fame that comes with her role in the hit fantasy series, confessing the demands of the media and fans are "overwhelming" at times.

The young Brit admits she has started thinking about her future after a crazy year on the hit show and she's worried she'll have to give up commercial travel and airport lounges to avoid the paparazzi and to keep away from fans.


She tells Entertainment Weekly, "I want to (act) the rest of my life, but I don't want paparazzi everywhere. I don't want to take a private jet everywhere. People don't just do that because they've got the money, but because they're sitting in airport lounges and literally doing photo after photo.


"I don't want to be an a-hole to anyone. If I watched somebody on television every week and I met them and they were an a-hole to me, it would break my heart. But it is an overwhelming life.


"Since the beginning, people said, 'Your life is gonna change', but I never believed it until this year."
