Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams Unveils New Shaved Head Transformation
Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has unveiled her new shaved head transformation on social media.
The actress, who is best known for playing Arya Stark in the hit fantasy show, took to Instagram to reveal the buzz cut from her holiday resort in Seychelles, captioning the post: “washing head w facewash> #3in1girlie”.
Fans flooded the comments with their compliments for the new look, including Williams’ Pistol co-star Emma Appleton, who wrote: “WOWWWW”.
Pistol was released on Disney+ in May and follows the Sex Pistols’ rise to fame in the ’70s. Williams starred as fashion icon Jordan, aka Pamela Rooke, while Appleton played Sid Vivacious’ girlfriend at the time, Nancy Spungen.
Speaking about taking on the role and working with the real Pamela Rooke on the series, Williams told Digital Spy: “I had a lot of preconceived ideas of what this story was going to be, and the way that it was going to be told, just from other things that have been made from this time.
“But because we had the support of so many people who were really there–including Jordan, who was an immense help to me and all areas of this production–it meant that we could bring it back to a place that was more real and we had a face to all of these iconic names.”
Up next for Williams is Apple TV+ series The New Look, which will follow the iconic rise of fashion designer Christian Dior as he dethrones the Grande Dame Coco Chanel and helps return spirit and life to the world with his iconic imprint of beauty and influence.
The series stars Marvel‘s Ben Mendelsohn and Oscar winner Juliette Binoche as its main characters, while Williams is set to play Catherine Dior–Christian’s youngest sister.
A first look at the upcoming thriller, which will also include the stories of other Dior associates and rivals, was revealed back in May.
