Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams has split from boyfriend Reuben Selby after five years.

Williams shared the news on Instagram, posting a photo of her and Selby together and writing: "The end of an era. Reuben and I have decided to end our relationship.

"Since we met 5 years ago, our connection always extended deeply into our shared, and separate, creative careers… and it will continue to do so.

"This decision is something we are so grateful for as we can protect the magic, that we can’t help but emit, whenever we put our brains together. P.s no further questions, please, we must protect our children (my dog)."

During their time together, Williams and Selby became quite the fashion icons, and in 2021 he even launched a fashion label.

In a joint interview with Tatler, the couple discussed rejecting gender 'norms' and labels in fashion, with Williams saying: "Reuben doesn't really see clothing as having any specific gender."

"It's just an image."

Selby added: "I've always felt fluid, but I don't think it would be right for me to label it as that because it's a difficult conversation. I don't really have any boundaries."

Williams is, of course, famous for playing Arya Stark on Game of Thrones and she recently rewatched the show's final season.

Speaking on her brother's Twitch channel, Williams admitted: "You know, I rewatched it all recently. It definitely fell off at the end.

"But it started really strong," she added. "I was heartbroken when Ned died, and I knew it was coming. For the first time, I could really feel the story."
