Maisie Williams would love to face her fear and visit Australia one day, as soon as she can find time in her super-busy schedule. It’s not the flying she’s worried about, or the fierce sun on her fair English skin, or even any lukewarm reception – for what Game of Thrones fan doesn’t adore the hit series’ bad-ass tomboy, Arya Stark? As phobias go, her hangup is pretty garden-variety: spiders.

“There are spiders in your capital cities too, right? Like, giant huntsmen? My friend told me they just appear on your bedroom wall out of nowhere,” declares the actress, 20, chatty and animated on a hotel couch in Soho, central London. “I’m hugely arachnophobic.” She flashes a grin. “Maybe I’ll stay in the water.”

Discovering that Maisie is as squeamish as the rest of us can feel a little disconcerting. After all, this is a woman known for playing characters as fearless and feisty as they are complex and multi-layered. There was the unhinged Lydia in 2014’s schoolset mystery The Falling; the witty but vulnerable Casey in Cyberbully, a 2015 television docudrama exploring the dark side of social media; and homeless teenager Millie, building a raft to sail across the Atlantic in 2016’s whimsical New Orleans-set drama, The Book of Love.

And, of course, there’s Arya, the teenage warrior she has played since the age of 12, growing into the part and celebrity (and into Arya’s pageboy haircut) as Game of Thrones – now seven series in – became the world’s most popular television show.

None of which is why she is here today, dressed in a black Miu Miu mini-dress with a white Peter Pan collar, her toned bare legs a legacy of her intensive dance background.
