Speaking to Net-a-Porter’s digital title PORTER, Maisie opened up about her quirky sense of fashion and her refusal to conform to ‘traditional’ beauty standards.

She said she went through a period of being desperate to look ‘traditionally’ beautiful before she decided to cut her hair into a mullet and go in a different direction with her look.

She said: ‘For the longest time, I was battling with wanting to look traditionally like what people picture as beautiful and I was getting really lost in that.

‘Then, I cut my hair into a mullet and said, “Well, I’m not going to even try anymore and I’m just gonna do something which I think really suits me and is still very different to everything I’ve been doing but feels right”. 

‘I was never getting the “Oh my gosh, she looks so beautiful” [comments] before, but certainly afterwards I was getting “Wow, that’s really cool”.’

In terms of her fashion, Maisie said she favors pieces from high-profile brands including Prada as well as items from emerging young designers as she carves out her new aesthetic. 

Maisie also touched on her latest role as Jordan, a former SEX boutique sales assistant who became one of the early faces of the bourgeoning ’70s punk scene and attended many of the Sex Pistols early performances.

Speaking about how her breakout role as Arya on Game of Thrones has influenced her later career, Maisie explained that she is trying not to enter other roles where the character is ‘hot-headed’ or ‘angry’. 

The star admitted that although those roles have become a place of comfort for her, she wants to branch out and explore more jobs that will allow her to engage other sides of her personality.
