Maisie Williams came to prominence after starring in the hit television series "Game of Thrones," where viewers watched her grow up as a person and as an artist.

She is now taking a more mature role as punk rock icon Jordan Mooney in the new Hulu series, "Pistols," focusing on the life of guitarist Steve Jones.

During her interview on "Good Morning America," Williams talked about her character, who was a fashion icon that influenced many styles today. She said:

"Being able to tell Steve Jones' story was just such an unbelievable opportunity for us, and I think getting to sort of dive into the history of the Pistols [...] was really nice."

Although Williams is undoubtedly happy and proud of her new role, she was pretty hesitant to accept the part at first because of the many nude scenes it required.

"I want to be in this show because I'm the best person to do this," Williams said. "Not because I'm the only girl who'll take her top off." Fortunately, after her manager spoke to the director, Williams agreed to take on the role.

WHAT HAPPENED TO MAISIE WILLIAMS AFTER "GAME OF THRONES?"

Before landing a part in "Pistols," Williams somewhat struggled to move on from her "Game of Thrones" character. When the show ended, the actress felt like she was in limbo between her previous work and what was to come next.

The official trailer was released in April, showcasing clips of the bands instigating various forms of revolution.

Bringing life to Arya Stark, her first-ever role was the "most defining thing" Williams did. Naturally, she did not want to accept any role with a character less complex than Arya.
