'Game of Thrones' : Faye Marsay Quit Facebook After Getting Abuse From GOT Fans For Playing The Waif [Video]
Actress Faye Marsay has got off social media after "Game of Thrones" fans bullied her for playing The Waif in "Game of Thrones."
Marsay played The Waif in the 5th and 6th Seasons of "The Game of Thrones." Her character is a deadly assassin and was fond of torturing Arya Stark played by Maisie Williams who is a fan favorite, the Metro reported. It seems that Marsay was subjected to massive online bullying that she finally decided to leave a social media platform altogether.
Playing the villainous Waif effectively in "Game of Thrones," her role who seems to enjoy torturing Arya was played superbly that she was trolled on social media for the acting the part. It's obvious some people can't differentiate the actors from their roles.
Marsay's most notable performance in the series was stabbing Arya during the last season. Thankfully, Arya survived to fight/kill another day. Marsay got a lot of online hate for that. It is most probable people who have been spewing hate towards her were appeased once Arya finally got her day and eliminated her.
According to Digital Spy, Marsay says she just got off Facebook. Probably receiving a lot of abuse, she decided to drop being on it for good. She says social media has become too intrusive and some she says even went on to the extent of finding out who she is in a relationship with. Needless to say, being on it terrifies her.
She shares an incident with the Daily Mail saying filming The Waif combat scenes with Williams was so exhausting she fell asleep in a plate of fish face first.
Marsay will appear next on Black Mirror in an installment called Hated In The Nation. Here we will see her opposite Kelly Macdonald as a police officer investigating strange deaths involving random victims. Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror Season 3 streaming on Netflix on Oct, 21.
