Is that Maisie Williams? This is what we’re asking after Maisie looked almost unrecognizable with blonde hair and bleached eyebrows at 2021 Brit Awards.
Looking more like Daenerys Targaryen than her iconic Game of Thrones character Arya Stark, Maisie Williams definitely looked dramatically different.
“If anyone who knows me at all knows that Game of Thrones is my life. So, the fact that Maisie was here to present this, I want to grab you,” Swift, 31, gushed about having her dear friend on stage. “I can’t, since we’re social distancing, but thank you so much for coming here to do this.”
After the ceremony, the two even got together to celebrate Swift’s big win. Joining the party were her other girlfriends Olivia Rodrigo and Griff.
This may be Williams’ first public appearance with the new platinum hair, but she had already given us a glimpse of the edgy transformation last month. Sharing photos from her 24th birthday, the actor can be seen gardening and hanging out with friends.
“my twenty-fourth spin around the sun,” she wrote in the caption. Adding, “this year I learned that: you have to water plants even if they live outdoors, i still can’t handle a couple of cocktails, i really love flowers.”
“i have been totally spoiled by my friends and family and i am so grateful for this beautiful life and the people in it,” she thanked her loved ones. “thank you @cartier for my cloud bracelet and thank you to everyone for the lovely birthday wishes.”
This is not the first time Maisie Williams has taken up a dramatic hair color. Previously, she looked absolutely gorgeous in her pink hair after wrapping Game of Thrones.
“I guess, subconsciously, I dyed it because I didn’t want to work,” she explained to Rolling Stone in 2019 of her transformation. “It’s a pretty good way of stopping that. And it just feels so good, so me. I’ve battled my whole adolescence with trying to put a stamp on my appearance, but also be a blank canvas as an actor.”
Platinum or pink, Williams can, in fact, pull off any look!
