Maisie Williams Nude Photos: ‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Hit With Leak Of Topless Photos That May Have Been Stolen

Maisie Williams could be the victim of a nude photo leak, with some topless pictures showing up online that may have been taken from a private social media page of the young Game of Thrones star.

Pictures of Williams showed up on Reddit over the weekend, showing the 19-year-old actress at what was described as a vacation to Japan. The pictures did not actually show Maisie Williams fully nude, but rather on a beach topless and with her back turned.

While the source of the pictures was not given, commenters noted that they came from a private Facebook page. The pictures shared this week do not appear on any of her official social media accounts, though there is other evidence from her current trip to Japan.

The Game of Thrones star has used the visit to push the real cause of dolphin protection. She has called for an end to marine shows that involve the capture and killing of dolphins. The actress joined some other celebrities including Sting, Daryl Hannah, and Brian May of Queen who are calling for an end to marine animal shows.

Williams said protecting whales and dolphins is a cause very close to her.

“It was something that just struck a chord in my heart,” Williams said (via Fox News). “And I’m a firm believer that, if there is something that you really want to stand up and fight for, then you should. And with everyone doing their own little bit for what they believe in, hopefully together we can make the world a better place.”

And somewhat ironically, Maisie Williams has been pushing traffic to her social media to further the cause. The Game of Thrones actress has 4 million followers on Instagram and another 1.5 million on Twitter, and also used her public Facebook account to drum up more support for the cause.

The nude pictures of Maisie Williams leaked to the internet this weekend would appear to fit within the perimeters of a Facebook post, showing no overt nudity. But even if they were posted on purpose by Williams, the publishing of the pictures has raised ethical issues with some media outlets. If the reports are true and the pictures were indeed stolen from her private Facebook page, then many see it akin to viewing pictures stolen from private devices like cell phones.

Barstool Sports made note of the implications of the nude photos of Maisie Williams — as well as her very young age — but noted that these concerns never seem to stop people from spreading the pictures online.

“But when a girl on Game of Thrones posts her butt to social media you can rest assured that the dedicated weirdos of the internet are already hot on the case disseminating it to the masses, bless their hearts.”

After the 2014 celebrity hacking scandal that exposed naked photos of a number of stars — including Kate Upton and Jennifer Lawrence — many media outlets refused to publish any of the pictures leaked, even non-nude ones. Cases like that one were also pursued by law enforcement authorities, though it’s not clear if the Maisie Williams topless photo involved any kind of illegal hacking or was simply the work of someone with access to the star’s private Facebook page.

This is not the first time that Maisie Williams has made news with a racy photo posted online. Back in October, she shared a picture alongside Game of Thrones co-star Sophie Turner that generated quite a bit of interest in the celebrity news circuit.
