Maisie Williams cringes over 'embarrassing' Game of Thrones video

Maisie Williams was left cringing after being shown a "horrible" Game of Thrones video looking back at her time on the show.

The actor was 13 when she won the role of Arya Stark in HBO's adaptation of George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series, which began in 2011.

She attended a panel – led by Conan O'Brien – alongside co-stars Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey for a reunion special that'll appear on the season eight box set.

O'Brien introduced a clip that showed Williams talking about the show back in 2011 alongside her on-screen siblings Sophie Turner (Sansa) and Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran).

"I've never done anything like this before," she says in the video. "It's going to be brilliant – doing this all the time [and] not knowing when this is going to end."

She's also shown talking about her relationship with Turner, whom she calls her "best friend".

Williams can be seen screaming when a young Harington is also shown in the video.

"What are you doing to us?" she asked O'Brien, adding: "This is horrible."

The panel will be available to watch in its entirety on the Game of Thrones season 8 box set, which is released on DVD and Blu-ray on 2 December.
