Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams is the star of SSENSE‘s latest editorial. The 22-year-old creative sports items from Gucci, Saint Laurent and Acne Studios replicating a high fashion version of her warrior character. She sports pink hair and bangs, a stark deviation from her no-makeup, brunette look that she’s had to maintain for eight years while on the cast of the history-making HBO series. As the final season comes to a close, Williams looks to learn more about herself without forgetting the lessons she learnt as Arya Stark. In the feature interview she dives into the importance of her role and what’s next:

Do you find it hard to move on?

A little bit. Playing Arya will be the most defining thing I ever do, and now it’s done. It was my first role. So much of what I know about this world is in Arya and I can’t imagine anything that will be as precious to me as Arya is—was. God, that’s sombre. I’ll always keep a piece of Arya with me. I know where my bar is now, and I don’t feel like I ever want to go any lower than that.

Are you being really picky about the next projects that you get involved in?

Yes—much to my agent’s dismay. I think success is measured in so many different ways, and to me it’s playing incredible characters and doing things I didn’t think I was capable of. There’s really no point in me doing this job that I’m so lucky to have if I feel miserable doing it. What I’ve learned from my 22 years on this planet is that what actually makes me happy isn’t all these things that come with being an actor. It’s having a nice routine, loving what I’m doing, and being able to see my friends.

I have to ask you about the ending of the show. Do you know what’s going to happen?

I do. There are so many different possibilities that no one is going to see it coming.

Is it going to be a surprise?

I thought no, but I’ve been asking people what they think the ending is going to be and they’re way off. I don’t think it’s predictable, just because of what I’ve heard. The writers must have had so much fun working on it because there are so many outcomes, with it being the final season and with like, 35 core characters. It’s not really what people expect.

She goes on to talk about her favorite GoT character and opens up about her creative company, London Creates. Read the full profile at SSENSE and peep the editorial below.
