Maisie Williams talks about her ‘traumatic’ childhood
Maisie Williams has revealed her father’s actions contributed to her “traumatic” childhood.
“As a child, before I was 8, I had a traumatic relationship with my father,” Game of Thrones actress Said on Monday’s episode of the podcast “The CEO’s Diary”.
“[That relationship] My childhood really took a lot of time. I’ve struggled with sleep for as long as I can remember, and I think a lot of harrowing things happened that I didn’t realize were wrong,” she continued, leading Steven Bartlett.
The 25-year-old former child star said that as she grew up, she felt alienated from her peers because of her experiences.
“I’ve been looking around at other kids and wondering why they don’t seem to understand this pain or fear or fear? Where does this joy come from – when did she come to me?”
In an interview, the Pistol star described her childhood as “feeling very deep compared to everyone else”.
While Williams did not elaborate on the specific events surrounding her father because “my siblings and my entire family were affected,” she shared that her mother, Hilary Pitt Frances ) was able to “stay away” from her father while the TV star was only four months old.
“It used to be bad,” said Williams, the youngest of four siblings.
Although withholding details, she described the moment a teacher asked her about her family life, planting a questionable seed in her mind.
When she was only 8 years old, her teacher asked her if she was hungry, and she said she was. When the teacher further asked her if she had breakfast, she refused because “we just didn’t eat breakfast.”
Williams eventually revealed to teachers that she and her siblings usually don’t eat anything in the morning.
When she cried during the interview, Williams said: “They’re asking the right questions. I’ve had a lot of people who love me so much and care about me so much, but I’ve never been asked the right questions, I can really say What is wrong. “
After speaking with teachers, Williams’ mother went to school with her siblings.
“It’s been really tough because I still want to fight and say, ‘No! These things are good! You’re trying to keep me away from my dad, and that’s wrong! Because I’m kind of indoctrinated.'”
Williams said she felt her “whole world was turned upside down” that day, sharing that while leaving her father was a good thing, she knew it was the opposite of everything she “knew it was.”
Describing her family situation as a “cult” of sorts, the actress expressed her changed view of her father and childhood years later, and a desire to stop personalizing what happened in her life.
“If I wasn’t there, it would be someone else. Not because of anything wrong with me, these things happened when I was a kid.”
