The HBO series’ success didn’t set in until she attended the 3rd season premiere. She recalled, "I remember getting out of the car with my mum and there were just like crowds and crowds of people behind barriers and they were all screaming and they all knew who I was. It was that moment that I was like, 'oh, this is pretty big.'"

"I looked at my mum and said, 'My life is never going to be the same again,'" she remembered.

The Bristol native also opened up about what life would been like if she hadn’t secured her current HBO gig. “My life would have been completely different. I think I’d probably still be living in London, but I’d be a struggling dancer,” she presumed.

Before her breakout role, Maisie attended the Bath Dance College for Performing Arts and just last month she gave fans a taste of her sweet moves. She posted a video of herself doing the “Idol” Challenge, a viral dance challenge set to the song of the same title by Korean music group BTS.
