the game of Thrones The actor says it all goes back to his early childhood, when his father was “really consuming” his life.

“Well me, as a kid before I was 8, I had a pretty traumatic relationship with my dad,” Maisie said recently on Diary of a CEO podcast.

While he didn’t want to go into specific details for the sake of the rest of his family, he said his childhood involved a lot of “pain,” “dread” and “fear.”

“For as long as I can remember, I’ve really had trouble sleeping. And I think a lot of the traumatic things that were going on, I didn’t realize was wrong,” Maisie explained.

While her mother was able to “escape” the relationship when Maisie was just a baby, she says things continued until she was 8, and a teacher stepped in.

The teacher took her aside and began to ask her if she was hungry and if she had eaten breakfast. When Maisie said she didn’t, the teacher realized that there were even bigger problems than a missed meal.

“I had so many people who loved me and cared so much about me, but I had never been asked the right questions where I could really tell what was wrong,” Maisie shared.

When her mother came to pick up Maisie and her siblings, she says, “It was the first time that all the doors were open and all these things that we were experiencing were on the table.”

But despite knowing that things were wrong, Maisie admits that she wanted to “fight” and defend her father, believing that being taken from him was “wrong”.

“I was indoctrinated in some way. I think that’s why I’m obsessed with cults. I get it. I get it,” she said. “I was in a children’s cult against my mother… So, I was really struggling at first.”

Maisie says her whole “world was turned upside down” suddenly as she adjusted to a life free from her father.

“Despite all these things I was feeling, I was like, ‘Oh my God, I’m so glad I don’t have to see my dad anymore.’ It was still, like, against everything I’d ever known to be true,” she admitted. .

Now an adult, Maisie says she realized that just because she ran away from her father, it didn’t mean she was “free” from the past.

“There is never a final destination for that freedom. And it comes from within. When are you going to be free of pain?” she shared

As for her relationship with her father, Maisie says she “has been trying to do this where [she] He stopped taking things personally.”

“What if I said it wasn’t because of me that it happened? If I hadn’t been there, it would have been someone else. It’s not because something is wrong with me that these things happened when I was a kid.” Maisie concluded.
