“Game of Thrones” star Maisie Williams and her boyfriend are currently on our ideal couple’s vacation

If you have been filling your time waiting for Game of Thrones Season 7 by low-key stalking the cast of the HBO series, we don’t blame you. And if you have been checking out Arya Stark’s Instagram account, then you’ll have seen that actress Maisie Williams is on vacation with her boyfriend. Although they have been dating for two years, Williams only just revealed the name of her boyfriend — Ollie Jackson — on Instagram in February. And now she’s showing the depth of their devotion on social media, thanks to Williams documenting their holiday. (Had to use the British term, didn’t we?)

Jackon isn’t a famous actor like his girlfriend is and the Game of Thrones actress told UK’s InStyle last April that they had met in school. Williams also told Nylon in April 2016 that her mystery boyfriend is “really sweet,” adding:

"I feel like I'm in love right now, but I don’t know what I am going to feel like down the line. That's why I am kind of closed-minded about marriage — I don't even know if I want to get married."

While Williams’ thoughts on marriage may not be definitive (she’s only 19, after all!), that feeling of love she mentioned is coming through in these Instagram photos of her with Jackson in Morocco, where they started their journey in Marrakesh.


Amusingly enough, Morocco is a filming location for Game of Thrones, but it’s Daenerys Targaryen’s territory — not Arya’s.

The couple kicked off their travels with a refreshing tea time (they are British, after all).


Then they explored the nightlife Morocco has to offer by visiting Comptoir Darna, where Jackson rocked an awesome shirt and texted his mom.


(Jackson texting his mom is kind of a thing.)


Hitting up nature was next on Williams and Jackson’s itinerary — because of course, Arya Stark requires adventure — as they went paddle-boarding by the Atlas Mountains.


In matching outfits, no less!


They wrapped up their fun in the sun in the Berber village of Ouirgane with Williams showing off her man’s hair.


While we totally respected the Game of Thrones star opting for privacy in her private life before, we can’t pretend that we don’t love that she has decided to open up about her relationship on social media. Not only do Williams and Jackson seem to be on an amazing vacay, but they also seem to be enjoying their time together — and that’s what an ideal couple’s vacation is all about.
