The 18-year-old actress, wearing Erdem, talks up playing Arya Stark on Game of Thrones, her boyfriend, fans and more. Check it:
On her non-famous boyfriend: “We’ve been together for over a year. I guess you could say things are getting pretty serious. He’s not famous. I met him at school. And now he’s my boyfriend! People feel it’s strange that someone who’s famous can go out with someone who’s normal. I don’t meet anyone else. Maybe I’m doing it wrong, but I don’t go to all these parties. I don’t meet the other young, male actors. I just like normal people, I guess.”
On if she has a method for dealing with fans approaching her at irritating times:’No. Well, my friends do, if we’re on a night out. If they’re quite pissed, it’s funny. They’re like, ‘It’s not her!’ And I’m in this awkward position, since it is me. And I don’t want to upset anyone. But like I said, sometimes I’m really quiet. And so I’m stood with a fan and it’s like, silence. Sometimes they walk away and I just think, god, they’re really disappointed.’
On using her temper for Arya Stark: “I’ve never said this in an interview before, but yeah, I have a temper. And I hate it! But that’s what worked with [playing] Arya. I know what it’s like to be really mad!”
