The Game of Thrones star continued: "I had a traumatic relationship with my dad and ever since I can remember I have struggled sleeping."

Although Maisie Williams no longer has to see her father, she still thinks about him often: "It's like all your problems don't just go away. You still care a lot about that person or the pain that led to those very, very poor decisions."

Nowadays, Maisie questions her father's actions: "It made me more interested in the guy. What could make you mistreat your own children? What happened to you as a kid?"

Ultimately, Maisie Williams notes that her father and the whole story would make a "fascinating documentary".
