Many know Maisie Williams as the sword-wielding Arya Stark in HBO's Game of Thrones, but she takes on a whole new level of fierceness in her latest interview with Dazed magazine.

Working the bold brow trend, the English actress talked about the struggles of being a teen in modern-day society.

"I get a lot of adults who are like, 'You don't know s--t,' and it's like, ‘You don't know s--t. You have no idea what it's like to be 17 years old,'" said the soon to be 18-year-old.

The star rocks a pensive expression for the cover, wearing a plum coat with various independence themed pins and bows. Inside her ten-page cover story, she can be seen rocking an au naturale look, wearing minimal clothing while holding a red flower.

She also dished about how she's not like stars who gain fame due to their notable good looks.

"I don't wanna be liked just because I'm pretty," said Williams. "That's f--king boring, and I'm not that. Lots of young people in the industry try to play it cool, but it just makes them look like arrogant d--kheads."

The petite brunette said she takes her role as a celebrity very seriously and added, "I'd much rather be liked because people realize that I'm standing up for myself."

Described by the mag as an anarchist, she also got candid about sexual taboos, feminism, and who she'll be voting for come general Election day.
