Who is Maisie Williams dating?

Maisie has been dating, Reuben Selby, 23, since 2019.

Reuben is the founder of The Contact Agency, a modeling agency, and the co-founder of Cortex Creatives, a creative agency.

The fashionable couple was first linked together in February of 2019 during Paris Fashion Week.

Her last Instagram post featuring Reuben was on February 23, 2022 – the pair was promoting Joro, an app created to help offset the human, carbon footprint.

Maisie was previously in a relationship with Ollie Jackson, co-founder of 100 Tons of Plastic back in 2018.

She spoke to Elle Magazine about her relationship with her former classmate.

She said: "We've been together for over a year. I guess you could say things are getting pretty serious. He's not famous. I met him at school. And now he's my boyfriend!"

Who does Maisie Williams play in Game of Thrones?

The actress plays Arya, the tomboy third child of Ned Stark, played by Sean Bean.

She has four siblings, her older brother Robb, younger brothers Bran and Rickon, and older sister Sansa, played by Sophie Turner.

Arya enjoys being outdoors, has a desire for exploration and fighting, and she's extremely handy with her beloved sword, nicknamed Needle- all skills which become invaluable to her on her journey.

She went on a horrific journey, having spent half of season five completely blind and halting her mission to get revenge on those who had wronged her family (she has a list).

However, she's proven to be more than a match for her enemies, and despite her small stature, has become one of Westeros' most prolific fighters.

Back in 2019, Maisie revealed she's looking forward to ending the show.

She told BBC Newsbeat: "I'm really excited for Game of Thrones to finish, and there's going to be time for me to do whatever I want."

The show ran for eight seasons – Maisie explained to GQ Magazine in 2022 that the younger cast rarely made public appearances in order to protect them from the consequences of fame.

“If that had happened when I was 12, I’m not sure what that would have done to me mentally," she said.

What else has Maisie Williams starred in?

In 2015, Maisie appeared in a one-off Channel 4 documentary, Cyberbully, as well as starring in the music video for Oceans by Seafret.

She later made an appearance alongside Peter Capaldi in episodes of the sci-fi favorite, Doctor Who.

In 2016, the star appeared in the Netflix original, iBoy – based on the book by Kevin Brooks.
