Maisie Williams made her appearance at the premiere of the final season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” in New York City on Wednesday and surprised fans with a brand new look: her latest hair colour, a vibrant lilac.

Williams’ newest dye job is a big difference from the dark brown hair that her character Arya Stark is known for on “Game of Thrones.” Her purple strands were pulled up into a high, twisted, loose bun that was accentuated with a large black bow hair accessory. She wore a bedazzled dark blue tiered dress and some equally sparkly jewellery for a glamorous look with a bit of edge.

This certainly isn’t the first time Williams has experimented with bright hair colour – in fact, only a few days prior to the “Game of Thrones” premiere, Williams had appeared on the “The Tonight Show” with bubblegum pink strands.

The actress first showed off her newly dyed pink hair on Instagram in November 2018, but that wasn’t her first foray into a bright colour either.

In 2016, after wrapping filming for season six of “Game of Thrones,” Williams dyed her brown hair black, a colour that eventually faded into a navy blue/black shade that was super unique.

From there, she transitioned to a more fun shade of teal. The teal had a sort of ombre effect, with the colour going from black at the roots to a lighter teal at the ends.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Williams revealed that she had gone from brown to pink following wrapping “Game of Thrones” for a reason, saying, “I dyed it because I didn’t want to work. It’s a pretty good way of stopping that. And it just feels so good, so me. I’ve battled my whole adolescence with trying to put a stamp on my appearance, but also be a blank canvas as an actor.”
