The 23-year-old Games of Thrones star recently opened up about what it was like growing up as a child actor.
“It can be very odd, especially when you’re younger and going through the teenage stage where you become a little bit more self-conscious or a bit more aware of your image and how you’re seen by other people,” Thomas told DIY. “And when you’re wanting to be seen by girls in a certain way! It’s good have good people around you, friends and family who keep you grounded and who remind you of who you really are. You don’t have to do all the magazines and be seen in the public eye, you have a fair amount of control over that.”
He added, “Acting’s quite an odd job really, you spend all your time pretending to be someone else. Film sets are very odd as well, this group of people that are only together for a certain amount of time and you really bond tight with the crew and the cast and then you just disappear and you kind of don’t see every one again. So it’s good to occupy your mind with something else, I like restoring motorcycles and I play bass in a band.”
