Game Of Thrones star Maisie Williams, 16, on why she’ll never get married: ‘It's extremely pointless’
The British actress, 16, was discussing the all-important issue of nail varnish when she launched into a diatribe about the rite of passage
It’s not often a conversation about nail art turns into a meaningful statement about the point of marriage in modern society.
But that’s exactly what happened when Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, who plays the plucky Ayra Stark in the fantasy drama, was interviewed by Vulture recently.
The British actress, 16, was discussing the all-important issue of nail varnish when she launched into a diatribe about the "pointless" romantic rite of passage.
"Lots of people do things on this finger, which is your wedding ring finger, which doesn't have any use. And I'm never going to get married," she said.
"Right now, my view on marriage is that it's extremely pointless. I see why other people get married, but for me, I'll never get married, so I always do designs on my wedding ring fingers, because I'll never wear a ring there."
She continued: "My parents separated when I was really, really young, and it's just the complications of it all. My dad's name is Williams, and my mum's new married name is Frances, but she was a Pitt, which is her maiden name.
"Had I just been a Pitt the whole time, then that whole thing, changing names wouldn't be necessary. In my opinion, nothing changes after you get married. If ain't broke, don't fix it.
Joe Dempsie and Maisie Williams in a scene from Game of Thrones "Maybe when I fall in love, I'll change my mind, but right now? It just makes it harder to break up. You can't just leave. I'd never want to be trapped. I never like to stay in one place too long. I always flit around, I never settle anywhere. So being married would be being trapped."
