It is rubbish.”

What do you think it’s like to grow up in front of the cameras?Maisie Williams, who plays Ayra Stark in Games of Thrones, admits that it’s not always great – especially when the embarrassing pictures show up.“All of the worst photos on Facebook and you

can’t untag yourself,” Maisie explained.“It’s been a pretty cool job to come on to first.”

James Nesbitt, who starred in the BBC drama The Missing, was all suited and booted in black tie for the bash but admitted it’s hard to go up against Benedict Cumberbatch.Of the BBC show, The Missing, he said: “It’s incredible treat. It was a tough old job. It was a privilege to be involved.”But is it really over for James Nesbitt on the show – can he see a return?”I think Tony’s ended,” James said, declaring that he’d definitely left the season. “I’m not in it any more.”

Yael Stone, who plays Lorna Morello in Orange Is The New Black, gushed over her stunning purple frock and was most impressed by it’s deep pockets.“It’s a painting that’s turned into an outfit,” she said on the red carpet.The actress was also chuffed with the sunshine, as she said: “I’m happy to be here in this beautiful weather.”She also thought being nominated in the International category was “very exotic”.“We’re thrilled to be here and I’m so honoured to represent the show. It’s a serious category in terms of shows,” she said, referring to the other shows such as True Detective, who are also up for the award.

As the red carpet starts, the legendary David Attenborough was the first guest to arrive and walk the red carpet.The presenter is up for the ‘Factual Series’ award for David Attenborough’s Conquest Of The Skies 3D.He faces stiff competition from the likes of 15,000 Kids And Counting, Life And Death Row and Educating The East End which are all in the same category.
