Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams says she is struggling to come back to phrases with rejection within the aftermath of the present.
The actress, now starring in Two Weeks To Reside, defined how her function in Sport of Thrones, which she performed for 10 years, hadn’t ready her to cope with being turned down for different jobs.
In an interview with The Telegraph, Williams stated, “It’s nearly more durable as a result of I had by no means been informed no. The second factor that I ever auditioned for was Sport of Thrones, and that launched my profession. There’s at all times competitors, it doesn’t matter how a lot you’ve carried out, you’ll at all times lose out on roles.
She continued: “The business is constructed upon rejection. I’m positively studying that now – the way to overcome the rejection and never see it as a private factor. However studying to be informed no is basically troublesome as somebody who’s a longtime actor.
“Nobody’s bought time for you whenever you’re like, ‘Oh I didn’t get the half on this factor.’ They’re like, ‘You simply got here off essentially the most profitable TV present of the last decade, are you able to hold on a minute?’”
On the subsequent stage of her profession, Maisie Williams stated she has a clearer thought of what to anticipate. “I do have a little bit of a plan for the primary time. By my entire profession I haven’t set any targets, and it’s been positive, however lately I’ve been like, ‘OK, let’s try to manipulate this case we’re in and nail down some issues I wish to do.’”
“It’s been actually useful, even from a psychological well being perspective, feeling like there’s some type of route. I’m not simply floating by means of the world and ready to see. Now I’ve bought an thought.”
