Early years

Margaret Constance Williams was born on April 15, 1997, in Bristol, to Gary Williams and Hilary Frances (née Pitt), a university course administrator who later quit to support her daughter's acting career. When Williams was four months old, her parents divorced. Williams, the youngest of four siblings (James, Beth, and Ted), was raised by her mother and stepfather in a three-bedroom council house in the Somerset village of Clutton. Williams was nicknamed "Maisie" at a young age because of her resemblance to the cartoon character from the UK newspaper comic strip The Perishers.

Williams attended Clutton Primary School as well as Norton Hill School in Midsomer Norton. She went on to Bath Dance College to study Performing Arts, where she trained in musical theatre, ballet, pointe, tap, street, freestyle, gymnastics, and trampolining with the goal of becoming a professional dancer. She dropped out of school when she was 14 years old, partly due to the success of her acting career. She was homeschooled at the time and did not take any educational exams.

Debut acting career, 2011-2019: Game of Thrones

Articles of primary importance: Arya Stark and Game of Thrones

In March 2013, Williams (left) posed with Game of Thrones co-star Sophie Turner.

Williams began her professional acting career at the age of 12 by co-starring in one of television's largest ensemble casts. In HBO's Game of Thrones (based on George R. R. Martin's epic fantasy novel series A Song of Ice and Fire), she was cast as Arya Stark, the feisty young tomboy daughter of a noble family. Williams nearly missed the audition (her second in her career) because it coincided with a school trip to a farm; however, her mother persuaded her to attend. The international popularity of Game of Thrones gave Williams global recognition as the series' viewership grew.

Arya Stark is regarded as an antiheroine, a fan favourite who evolved into one of the fantasy epic Game of Thrones' central protagonists. Throughout the first six seasons, the character's story arc includes severance, trauma, tragedy, and revenge. A young actor capable of portraying a deadly assassin was required for the physical role. Williams, who is naturally right-handed but kept in character by performing left-handed in the show, performed the majority of the series' stunts and fight scenes. She was told a year before the filming of "The Long Night" to work on her stamina. Her performance in that episode, which featured the longest battle scene in film and television history, was nominated for a BAFTA TV Award in the "Must-see moment" category at the 2020 BAFTA TV Awards. Williams appeared in all eight seasons of Game of Thrones, with the final episode airing in May 2019.

Williams has stated that, while she cherishes her role as Arya, she does not miss that time in her personal life. Arya was not only younger than Williams, but the role required that she be made to look boyish with short hair and make-up, as well as a strap across her chest that made Williams feel ashamed as her feminine body developed during her mid-teen years. The character did not reflect who she was becoming in real life, nor did Arya resemble what Williams considered attractive, and she resented her own body for not matching that of her character.

Reactions have been mixed.

Williams was praised and recognised for her portrayal of Arya in the show. In 2012, her second year of professional acting, she was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress at the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards, but she did not make the nomination shortlist. She received the Portal Award for Best Young Actor and the Portal Award for Best Supporting Actress - Television in 2012. (at 15 years, the youngest actress to achieve this). She won the BBC Radio 1 Teen Award for Best British Actor in November 2013. She won "Best Supporting Actress, Drama" at the EWwy Awards in August 2014. She received the Empire Hero Award and the Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Young Actor in a Television Series in 2015. She was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in 2016. Williams was nominated for Best Performance in a Show at the MTV Movie & TV Awards in 2018. In 2019, her performance in the drama's final season earned her a Saturn Award for Best Performance by a Younger Actor in a Television Series, as well as nominations for Best Hero and Best Fight in the MTV Movie & TV Awards and People's Choice Awards for The Female TV Star and The Drama TV Star. Williams received her second nomination for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series the same year, according to Variety's Daniel D'Addario "She entered the show as a child with little experience, but quickly proved herself to be a very talented performer... Millions of people watched her develop into her talents, and her first role was a fitting end to her unusual journey "would be for her to receive an Emmy nomination.

Acting career in progress

The Falling, Cyberbully, and Doctor Who from 2012 to 2015

Williams starred as Loren Caleigh in the three-part BBC supernatural thriller series The Secret of Crickley Hall in 2012. Williams appeared in the Funny or Die skit The Olympic Ticket Scalper. She also appeared in Heatstroke (2012), an independent film, and Up on the Roof, a short film (2013).

Williams starred as Lydia in Carol Morley's 2014 melodramatic coming-of-age mystery film drama The Falling, set in an all-girls school, for which she received the London Film Critics' Circle Award for Young Performer of the Year, the Evening Standard British Film Award Rising Star, and the European Shooting Stars Award at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival. The film premiered at the BFI London Film Festival on October 11, 2014, and was released theatrically in the United Kingdom on April 24, 2015. Variety's Guy Lodge called Williams "prodigiously gifted" and said she delivered a "brilliantly articulated... bristling, often spikily funny performance." She also starred as Abbie in the Irish comedy-drama Gold in 2014.

Williams (a victim of cyberbullying herself) starred as Casey Jacobs in the one-hour BAFTA-nominated Channel 4 docudrama television film Cyberbully in January 2015. Filipa Jodelka described Williams' central, almost solo, performance as a "tour-de-force" in The Guardian. Williams appeared as Ashildr, a Viking girl made immortal by the Doctor, in four episodes of the BBC science fiction series Doctor Who in 2015 ("The Girl Who Died," "The Woman Who Lived," "Face the Raven," and "Hell Bent"). The performance of Williams in "The Woman Who Lived" was described as "superb" by Patrick Mulkern of the Radio Times.

iBoy, Early Man, I and You, and gen:LOCK from 2017 to 2019.

Williams co-starred as Lucy in the Netflix science fiction teen superhero thriller film iBoy with Bill Milner in 2017. The Daily Telegraph's Tristram Fane Saunders wrote that she brought "depth, humour, and honesty to the role." In 2017, Williams starred as Isabel Baxter in Haifaa al-romantic Mansour's period drama Mary Shelley, which was written and directed by Emma Jensen.

In 2018, she played Goona, a Bronze Age fearless rebel tomboy football enthusiast in Nick Park's animated prehistoric comedy sports film Early Man, alongside Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hiddleston, though both Gwilym Mumford of The Guardian and Kate Stables of the British Film Institute noted that Williams' accent changed throughout the film. Williams played Caroline in Lauren Gunderson's stage play I and You, which ran from October 18 to November 24, 2018. The play had its world premiere at London's Hampstead Theatre. The play was a box office success, and Williams' stage performance was a critical success, with the production later being broadcast free on Instagram from November 30 to December 3, 2018, and again during the last week of March 2020. She was also in the eleven-minute short film. Corvidae, a dark fairy tale filmed in 2013 and released in 2018, of which Craig Holton of flickfeast commented that Williams brought "an undeniably ethereal quality to this short film, helping it make the leap from grounded realism to eldritch bucolic fantasy".

Williams appeared in the 2019 coming-of-age romantic comedy-drama film Then Came You, alongside Asa Butterfield and Nina Dobrev, as a teenager with a terminal illness. Frank Scheck of the Hollywood Reporter felt that Williams made her "sprightly character appealingly vulnerable". On October 12, 2018, the film premiered at the Woodstock Film Festival and was released nationwide in 2019. Williams voiced Cammie MacCloud, a mischievous Scottish hacker, in the U.S. animated web series Gen:Lock, which is set in a dystopian future and is broadcast on the Rooster Teeth subscription service, from 2019 to 2021. The second season of nine episodes premiered on HBO Max first on November 4, 2021, before being released on Rooster Teeth three months later.

The New Mutants, Two Weeks to Live, and The Owners in 2020

Williams co-starred in the delayed Disney/Fox superhero horror film The New Mutants, which was originally scheduled for release in April 2018. The New York Times said Williams portrayed the Marvel superhero Rahne Sinclair / Wolfsbane—a Scottish mutant who can turn into a wolf, but struggles to reconcile this with her religious beliefs — "with endearing sincerity". Though the film received mixed to negative reviews, The Hollywood Reporter praised her performance, saying she added "layers of panache and emotion" to her character. In August 2020, the film was released in "in theatres" that were partially open with reduced capacity due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic (despite many other major Disney films being further delayed). Josh Boone wrote and directed the film, which also stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Blu Hunt, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, and Henry Zaga. The same sex romantic relationship between Williams' Rahne and Hunt's Danielle Moonstar was described by the Los Angeles Times as "honest and a central part of the story that grounded the film with a sense of humanity," making the New Mutants both a rare LGBTQ inclusive superhero film and groundbreaking for a Disney release.

Williams starred in Two Weeks to Live, a six-part dark, deadpan comedy revenge drama that will be released in September 2020. Williams plays Kim Noakes, who has been raised in total isolation, living off the grid in the wilderness, by her overprotective doomsday prepping badass survivalist mother, Tina, following the murder of her father (played by Sian Clifford). Action is set in motion after a seemingly harmless prank on Kim of a fake video that leads her to believe that everyone on the planet has only two weeks to live. Kim, who was raised to believe that the end of the world was near, sets out to kill the man who murdered her father in front of her when she was a child. Williams "excels in her fish-out-of-water role, flitting between hapless and determined, worldly and childlike," according to the Guardian. Two Weeks To Live allows Williams to flex her comedic muscles while also demonstrating her stunt fighting and stunt skills. According to the NME, the action drama is also genuinely funny. The UK series, written by Gaby Hull and produced by Kudos for Sky UK, premieres on 2 September 2020, and premieres on HBO Max on 5 November in the United States. Sean Knopp, Mawaan Rizwan, and Taheen Modak also appeared in the six-part first season.

In September, Williams starred in the psychological thriller The Owners, in which she played Mary, a young woman who reluctantly agrees to participate in a botched robbery of an elderly couple's home with her boyfriend and two other young low-level criminals (Ian Kenny, Jake Curran, and Andrew Ellis) (Sylvester McCoy and Rita Tushingham). The Hollywood Reporter, while praising McCoy and Tushingham more, felt that Williams 'used her innate appeal to make her character sympathetic'. Dread Central felt that she gave better performance than she did in New Mutants and commented "it's undeniably cool to see the young, now forever iconic actress kick ass in a real world setting". On September 4, RLJE Films released the film in select theatres and digital on demand. Julius Berg directed the film, which was adapted from the graphic novel Une Nuit De Pleine Lune by Belgian artist Hermann and writer Yves H. Sylvester McCoy, her veteran co-star, predicted Williams' success outside of acting "She's a little bubbly ball of fire and creativity... she grew up in the business and knows it inside and out... She's a rising actress, but I wouldn't be surprised if she became a director and producer as well... She has all of those abilities, intelligence, and business knowledge from years of doing it... from a young age."

2022: Pistol

Williams portrays real-life punk rock icon Jordan in the six-episode FX biopic limited series Pistol, about the Sex Pistols (Pamela Rooke). Danny Boyle executive produced and directed the series, which is based on guitarist Steve Jones' 2018 memoir Lonely Boy: Tales from a Sex Pistol. Jordan was the archetypal subversive model, known for her 'distinctive Vivienne Westwood-designed outfits' and 'outrageous make-up,' and was credited with co-creating the punk fashion style. Williams has a "formidable screen presence" as the "untouchably cool" Jordan, complete with "a vertical sheet of peroxide blonde hair." Rooke served as an advisor on the show, informing Williams that she would be portraying a very strong female "a woman who stands out. I decided I wanted to be me... a walking work of art... I was completely and completely unshakeable." Williams "sparkles" in the second episode's cold opening, when she recreates Jordan's cycling through her seaside hometown and then commuting by train in a fully revealing transparent PVC top, much to the chagrin and heckling of the people around her: a scene both The Guardian and Vogue deemed to be one of the series' strongest. Williams embraced the punk-rock style for her Pistol press tour, keeping her public image in mind. Jordan's use of both her clothing and her physicality as a defiant presence, as a political statement that turned the male gaze in on itself and took control of the situation, inspired the actress.

upcoming roles

It was reported in May 2022 that Williams had been cast in Sinners vs Saints, an adaptation of Anthony Delano's "Joyce McKinney and the Case of the Manacled Mormon," a "over the top" true story about an eccentric American accused of abducting and raping the subject of her sexual obsession, a Mormon missionary named Kirk Anderson, in England in the 1970s. Williams was cast in the upcoming Apple drama series The New Look, which was announced the same month. Set in World War II-occupied Paris, she plays Catherine Dior (Legion of Honour recipient for her actions in the French resistance), the younger sister of fashion designer Christian Dior, whose style was eclipsing that of Coco Chanel at the time.

Work in commercial promotion

Williams gave a feminist speech in New York in 2015 at the launch of Always' "Like a girl" campaign, according to The Daily Telegraph. The speech was directed at Generation Z, of which Williams is a member. Williams performed "Let It Go" from the film Frozen in an Audi commercial that aired during Super Bowl LIV on February 2, 2020. She appeared in the Apple MacBook's "Made in the UK" campaign ad in July 2020, alongside screenwriter and actor Michaela Coel, artist Grayson Perry, film maker Jenn Nkiru, animation studio Aardman, printmaker Gabriella Marcella, rapper Dave, and singer Labrinth. She was also named an ambassador for Cartier's new Pasha de Cartier watch in the summer of 2020.

Williams was named H&M's global sustainability ambassador in April 2021. This comes after H&M announced in December that its foundation will spend $100 million (£72 million) on environmental initiatives. The goal was to encourage H&M to transition to a circular fashion model in which customers recycle unwanted garments, resulting in less waste and a lower environmental impact. Some sustainability activists and fair fashion campaigners, however, accused both Williams and H&M of greenwashing. The fast-fashion brand recycling initiative was chastised for not going far enough, for failing to use sustainable materials from the start, for perceived poor treatment of its workers, and for failing to meet the Living Wage targets it set itself. The company stood firm in its defence. Williams was chastised for lending her celebrity name and profiting financially from the corporate partnership.

Other professional pursuits

Production businesses

Daisy Chain Productions was founded in early 2016 by Williams and Dom Santry (both of whom she met while working on iBoy) to develop and produce UK-originated short films, theatrical features, and high-end television drama, with a focus on opportunities for youth and talent development in the UK. The company's first production was the short film Stealing Silver, which Williams executive produced and starred in alongside Ronald Pickup in 2017.

Williams and Lowri Roberts collaborated as executive producers on a 15-minute British/Czech co-produced stop motion animation short, Salvation Has No Name, through their production company Rapt. Joseph Wallace wrote and directed the film, which began filming in 2020 at Aardman Studios and is scheduled to be screened at festivals in 2022. Salvation Has No Name, which will be shown at festivals in 2022, is a cinematic folktale that explores the issue of xenophobia and faith in the context of the refugee crisis through a surreal performance by a circus clown troupe.

A career on the internet

On August 1, 2018, Williams and Santry co-created and launched the beta version of Daisie, a new iOS-compatible social media app. Daisie is a multi-media social networking-style platform designed to assist artists and creators of all types and backgrounds from across the various creative industries in showcasing their work, discovering projects, collaborating, and providing an alternative route to developing their careers. The company is based in Shoreditch, London's East End. Daisie raised £2 million ($2.5 million) in seed funding in May 2019. Eleven days after its public launch, in May 2019, the number of users reached 100,000 (with 70% of the user base being female), the majority of whom were in London, where the majority of its marketing efforts had been concentrated. Daisie received a 4 out of 5 rating on AppAdvice.

Users can look for creative projects and network with other users in their fields of interest. Users' profiles expand as they connect with other creative people (via "chains") and collaborate on projects (not by obtaining high follower popularity counts, friends, or likes typical of most other social media apps). Williams elaborates: "The chains you create are how your profile grows. To form a chain with someone, you must collaborate." Daisie allows creative users to showcase their own work or collaborations in the same or multiple arts industries. They can also get advice from leading experts in their fields through a question and answer format with others who have more experience.

Williams and Santry described Daisie as a tool for young people to overcome internal and external barriers that prevent aspiring artists from gaining recognition and exposure. The "goal is to have a community of artists collaborating with each other, uploading their work, sharing their projects, and ultimately... helping people with their own careers, rather than our own," Williams stated. Daisie does not allow company profiles, preferring to focus on individual creators. In 2019, Williams stated that instead of "having to market themselves to fit someone else's idea of what their job would be," creators can "let their art speak for themselves."

In 2019, Williams presented a TEDx talk in Manchester on the topic "Don't strive to be famous, strive to be talented". She concluded her presentation by introducing Daisie as a social network tool for artists to collaborate with one another, as well as a way for artists to reclaim control.

Williams is also the Creative Strategist and advisor to Contact, a platform co-founded by Williams' partner Reuben Selby, who was previously a member of her Daisie team. Initially intended to connect agencies and models (including support features including licencing and insurance). Following a successful seed funding campaign ($1.9 million (£1.4 million), the plan is to expand into other creative fields such as photographers, stylists, videographers, and others. Contact provides a different perspective on working in the creative industries, which are currently dominated by agencies. Individuals and businesses can use Contact to find and book creators and creative services without the need for an agency.

Personal interests

Personal life and style

Though Williams has been quoted as saying, "No dress in the world is worth giving up sword fighting," according to Vogue's Janelle Okwodu, Williams has "cultivated a quirky, youthful style," while The Daily Telegraph's senior fashion editor Emily Cronin emphasised Williams' "Street style," and that as a celebrity, she has been courted by the fashion industry. Williams and her boyfriend Reuben Selby began to appear on the fashion scene as a couple in 2019, frequently in coordinated ensembles. She began working with Selby in 2020 on the creation of his own sustainable genderless fashion line, which he debuted during Paris Fashion Week in the courtyard of the Ritz Paris. Williams and Selby live in the countryside of south-east England.

Advocacy and charitable work

Williams is an outspoken environmentalist. She mentioned "activist groups like Extinction Rebellion" as a major inspiration in a 2019 interview with Dazed Digital. Williams is a global ambassador and campaigner for dolphin trainer Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project, and she has participated in anti-dolphin-hunting protests. She has also actively supported anti-bullying, gay marriage, trans rights, Black Lives Matter, the environmental organisation Greenpeace, and the clean water charity WaterAid campaigns, and has used her celebrity to encourage young people to vote (for the Labour Party). During the coronavirus pandemic, she gave £50,000 ($62,500) to the Bristol Animal Rescue Centre, where she had adopted a dog.

Williams, Zoe Sugg, and activist Adwoa Aboah designed a limited-edition period bag for WaterAid's non-profit monthly subscription service (in collaboration with a designer from Daisie). Fempowered. The bags' sales are intended to address period taboos while also raising funds to address international inequalities in period poverty.
Williams was named the World Wildlife Fund's (WWF) first global ambassador for climate and nature in April 2021. Williams (as the WWF Global Ambassador) delivered the opening address at the premiere of Sir David Attenborough's upcoming television series The Green Planet at Glasgow's Imax cinema on the eve of COP26 in November 2021.
