A 'Game Of Thrones' star opens up about what she goes through online, and my heart hurts.

When you're a 17-year-old starring on a hit TV series, it's easy to seem untouchable. But that's not necessarily true for "Game of Thrones" star Maisie Williams.

She may be an expert sword fighter on "Game of Thrones," but in real life, Maisie Williams deals with an issue that cuts her deep.

The problem is cyberbulling, and the British actress is not going to stay quiet about it anymore.

Hooray for being honest!

Maisie made these candid comments in a behind-the-scenes video to promote her new thriller, "Cyberbully," which tracks the life of a teen fighting off a cyberstalker. The drama is loosely based on real-life events. It's also an issue that the star admits hits close to home.

She hopes that folks realize that online bullying is just as toxic as real-life bullying. Whether you're a teenager or an adult, the pain stings, and the hurt is oh so real.
