Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams (right) has revealed how she was left embarrassed after meeting Irish actor Robert Sheehan.

The actress (18), who has starred in the hit HBO series since 2011, said she was starstruck when she crossed paths with the former Love/Hate actor.

Maisie, who also starred in TV film Cyberbully earlier this year, admitted she was left red-faced as she couldn't stop laughing after meeting the Laois native.

"I met Robert Sheehan on a plane and I did that giggly girl thing and I'm still so angry at myself about it," she said.

Despite her young age, the British actress has starred in many well known shows, including an appearance on iconic series Doctor Who.

However, the rising star isn't going to let fame go to her head anytime soon, and says that despite being recognised in the street she "carries on with her life".

"I can be in my hometown and not be noticed, and I can be somewhere in London and I'll be stopped quite a lot," she told Empire magazine.
