Rep for ‘Game of Thrones’ Star Maisie Williams Responds to Topless Photo Leak

Maisie Williams Talks the 'Frightening' Aspects of Hollywood
The 'Game of Thrones' actress reveals what's it like to grow up in the spotlight.

A representative for Maisie Williams confirmed her leaked photos were taken from a private Facebook account.

The Game of Thrones actress was believed to be the victim of hackers when topless photos of her were posted on Reddit. However, her rep issued a clarification stating that the images were, in fact, real, and had been taken from her social media account without her permission.

“The images online were shared from Maisie’s personal social media account,” Williams’ rep said in a statement to Page Six. “The images are not explicit in nature, but pictures of Maisie and close friends at a spa at a recent visit in Japan.”

Although the 19-year-old actress was not fully nude, that didn’t stop the photos from spreading on other social media platforms. In the pics the actress originally posted, she can be seen posing topless on a rock with her back turned to the camera.

Williams is not the first female celebrity to have private photos leaked online. Photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Kaley Cuoco, and Kate Upton were notoriously stolen and shared a couple of years ago.
