Playing 'Game of Thrones' Star Maisie Williams Isn't Labeling Her Sexuality, Reveals She's 'in Love'

Maisie Williams is fine with labels -- she just doesn't want to place any on herself.

The 19-year-old Game of Thrones actress covers Nylon magazine's Young Hollywood issue and opened up about her sexuality and how she was inspired to speak out by another young starlet.

"I've never sat up and thought about my sexuality for hours. It's like what Shailene Woodley said, 'I fall in love with personalities and not people or genders,'" she explained. "I have no problem with anyone who would want to be labeled, but I also think that it is no one's business."

Williams also revealed that she not only has a boyfriend, but she's in love!

"I met him at school. He's really sweet," she gushed. "I feel like I'm in love right now, but I don't know what I am going to feel like down the line. That's why I am kind of closed-minded about marriage -- I don't even know if I want to get married."

The actress, who was only 12 when she landed the role of Arya Stark on the HBO fantasy series, said she has always been allowed to watch the show -- even the more R-rated scenes.

"For a lot of the most violent scenes, my character was there. I was there for the filming of Ned Stark's beheading, I was there when Joffrey got his arm bitten. I was there for a lot," she recalled. "It was more intriguing than scary for me to watch how it was all cut together."

As for the nudity, Williams hilariously revealed, "My mom was cool with that, too, like, 'It's where babies come from.'"

Meanwhile, co-star Emilia Clarke talked those GoT nude scenes, strong women and balancing her love life exclusively with ET. Check it out in the video below.
