Cringe.

Maisie was having a chat with Nick Grimshaw on his radio show when he revealed that he had been in touch with her Game of Thrones co-star Sophie Turner to get some embarrassing stories about her.

Sophie told Grimmy to ask the actress about Bono.

Maisie laughed awkwardly before revealing a hilarious story about when she met the U2 singer.

''We were lucky enough to get U2 tickets when we were in Belfast filming'' Maisie begins to explain.

''Bono was there backstage saying hi to everyone,''

''I had had a drink, and he goes 'hi, what's your name?' and I said 'I'm Maisie' and I wen't to say 'what's your name', which you just can’t say to Bono.”

But Bono obviously picked up on what Maisie was about to say.

“He was like ‘I’m Bono. And I just sat there very very quietly.'' Maise says giggling.

Sophie [Turner] was like ‘you just asked Bono what his name is. At a U2 concert.’ It was awful, awful.”
