ENGLAND (AP) — “Game of Thrones” star Maisie Williams has taken to Twitter to rewrite a recent headline about her.

Williams, who plays Arya Stark on the HBO series, tweeted to her nearly 1.3 million followers Tuesday a Daily Mail headline that read Williams “goes braless in sheer lace dress and quirky headpiece at charity masquerade ball.”

Her suggested alternative: “Game of Thrones actor, Maisie Williams, helps raise thousands at a Summer Masquerade Ball for @NSPCC.” That’s the Twitter handle for England’s National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.

The tweet has received more than 32,000 retweets and 58,000 likes.

The 19-year-old Williams started on “Game of Thrones” when she was 12 in her first-ever acting job.
