Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has likened her character Arya Stark to Darth Vader. 

Speaking to Access Hollywood, Williams compared her character to, "a misunderstood Darth Vader."

Williams explained that Arya is like Darth Vader because she's starts out good and ends up bad. She said: "It's the same with Arya, although we're actually seeing that twisted path, which is almost more disturbing than you hating a character and then realising they're actually quite good.

"To actually see one of your favourite characters  - of such a lovely young, funny girl, slowly be chipped and chipped away into something completely else, I think, even more me, it was really hard to play, and I'm reading scenes, like, 'God, this is not the Arya that I thought I was going to be playing'. And yeah, it's different and I really, really hope people still continue to follow her storyline."

Game of Thrones season five is set to return to Sky Atlantic next year.
