I like shocking people just because, like, I can wear a dress, too. Not even for people to go, 'Oh she's grown up,' but to show people that I'm actually a girl.

Some suggestions for you :

People are like, 'What's Game of Thrones about?' I'm like, 'It's in the title.' For real, this is a game for the Iron Throne. No matter what character you are, you're sucked into that at some point.

When you cross over on fandoms, people don't know what to do with themselves.

Someone once told me that if you respect a person, listen to their opinion. And if you do not respect someone, then do not listen to their opinion. And that works both ways.

On 'Game of Thrones', the people that I've met, of the people behind the scenes, was not even a scratch of the vast crew that actually does work on that show.

I have this really bad habit of doing things on the Internet and forgetting that the whole world is going to see it.

When I was in primary school, my best friend was a boy and we always goofed around, climbed trees, got holes in my trousers and muddied all my tops and things like that; a complete nightmare for the washing, but great fun.

People just get kicks out of making other people sad.

Sometimes I wish I was more comfortable just saying what I thought and getting my point across.

People ask me, 'Isn't it scary living on your own?' but in this industry, being at events, doing interviews, and doing promotion and constantly chatting about yourself, sometimes it's really nice to just sit in silence or take a day where you can sleep in until 3 P.M. and then stay up as late as you like.

For every three scripts that you get through, one will be made, and that doesn't even necessarily mean that they're going to cast you in it.

There's some people that obviously abuse social networking or whatever, but I think it's a fantastic idea. I've never had any bad encounters with any of it.

As an actor, you're constantly looking to be pushed.

If you put music into your Vine, and it's really jumpy, just do it over again.

I talk to myself quite a lot, and when things get stressful, I just tell myself to breathe.
