Maisie Williams is proving there is no stark contrast between her and her TV character, Arya.

Williams, who plays feisty Arya Stark on the wildly popular TV show Game of Thrones, was refused entry to a business class lounge operated by British Airways.

The 17-year old leapt onto Twitter to criticise the airline, who do not allow people under the age of 18 into the lounge by themselves.

"Denied from the business lounge once again for being under 18 and without an adult... @British_Airways sort your s**t out," she said.

"I'm not saying I deserve special treatment," she added.

"Just saying if 16-18 yr olds are grown up enough to travel 5400 miles around the world I'm sure we can handle sitting quietly in the damn lounge."

In response, British Airways said:

"Hi Maisie. We're sorry if you were disappointed, lounge guests must be 18 or older. We look forward to welcoming you soon."

Williams, not content to end it there, continued.

"Yes.. @British_Airways fully understand that, my question is why? Why can we travel alone but not use the lounge? It makes no sense."

British Airways said the policy was in place due to the complimentary alcohol bar, which could be freely accessed by anyone within the lounge.

Williams has yet to respond further.

The fifth season of Game of Thrones is set to start filming next month.
