Looking at the series, Game Of Thrones certainly doesn't look an easy task to work on. The series which is currently in its eighth season achieved unprecedented popularity and has become a pop culture phenomenon over the years. From inspiring meme culture to becoming one of the most binge-watched shows in recent times, Game Of Thrones has been hitting the headlines for a decade now. With the final episode only a couple of days away, stars of the show have been opening up about their experience on the show. Actress Maisie Williams who plays the role of Arya Stark in the series recently opened up about mental health in an interview. Game Of Thrones: Furious Fans Petition for HBO to Remake Season 8 With New Writers.

Maisie first started working on the show as a 13-year-old and recalls getting affected by criticism at that point. With the increasing usage of social media, it is now easy to diss actors and content and that took a toll on Maisie quite soon.

The 22-year-old actress told CNN, "I still lie in bed at, like, 11 o'clock at night telling myself all the things I hate about myself. It's just really terrifying that you're ever going to slip back into it. That's still something that I'm really working on, because I think that's really hard. It's really hard to feel sad and not feel completely defeated by it."  Game of Thrones 8 Episode 5: Twitterati Makes Memes on Daenerys’ Destruction of King’s Landing and Jon Snow Being Jon Snow – Read Tweets

Willaims shot to fame at a very young age after playing the fan favourite character of Arya Stark. Over the seasons, Arya's character in the series has developed to become one of the most key characters for the story. It will be interesting to see what Maisie's character will be doing in the big finale which is all set to release on May 20.
