Margret Constance “Maisie” Williams was born in Bristol, England, in 1997, and it didn’t take her very long to break into show business. Her first professional role was playing Arya Stark on Game of Thrones starting in 2011. She turns 22 around the time GoT starts its eighth and final season in April 2019.

What are some of her other roles?

As we mentioned, Arya Stark is her first professional role, and it immediately opened the door for more.

Many of her work since her debut has been for British fans, including features films such as Gold, The Falling, iBoy, and Mary Shelley. Williams also appeared on the long-running show Doctor Who and the U.K. TV movie Cyberbully. Hollywood movies such as Heatstroke, The Book of Love, and Then Came You show up on her resume.

Considering Maisie Williams was only in her early 20s when she shot the final season of Game of Thrones, we have to say we’re impressed by her net worth. She has a fortune estimated at $6 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

As for how much does she make for Game of Thrones? Some estimates say $150,000 per episode, but truth be told, we don’t know what her salary is. Considering the most expensive Game of Thrones episode to date cost more than $10 million to make and a lot of the money goes toward paying the cast, we’re confident saying Williams earns well into six figures for each show.

Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau all share the title of Game of Thrones’ highest paid actors. They’re making $1.1 million per show.

After the curtain closes on Game of Thrones, Maisie Williams fans won’t have to wait long to see her again. She’s already completed work on the sci-fi horror film The New Mutants, which hits theaters in the United States in August 2019.

Williams is also working with Dakota Fanning, David Tennant, and Creed II star Michael B. Jordan on the animated series gen:LOCK, according to Entertainment Weekly. We’re sure that’s just the tip of the iceberg for the Primetime Emmy Awards nominee and Evening Standard British Film Awards winner.
