Maisie Williams, of "Game of Thrones" and being a wise human fame, is unimpressed with the entertainment industry's "hot piece" roles.
In a profile in the London Evening Standard, Williams opened up about inequality in parts for men and women actors:
There are a lot of roles that come in that are “the girlfriend” or “the hot piece” in a movie or TV series. That’s something I’ve seen first-hand and read all the time. It will say “Derek: intelligent, good with kids, funny, really good at this” and then it will say “Sandra: hot in a sort of cute way” -- and that’s all you get. That’s the way your character is described, so going into an audition you are channelling “hot,” which isn’t like a person, that’s not who a person is. That’s what I see and that’s what needs to change. I’ve been lucky enough to play a very great female character from a young age, who is a fantastic role model for girls.
