Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has started a YouTube channel, and kicks things off with a quick Q & A.
Williams, 18, is best known for playing Arya Stark on HBO’s epic fantasy series. The actress began her YouTube channel to post a video celebrating her one million Twitter followers, but is also drawn to the medium for creative reasons.
“I have a lot of friends who are already on YouTube and I just find it really, really interesting what they do,” Williams says. “I thought I’d give it a shot myself.”
“I’m mainly going to have videos of things that make me laugh,” the actress prefaces. “It’s not gonna be somewhere that I post regularly. It will just be every now and then, something that made me smile, or an idea I had to let my creative juices out.”
In the question-and-answer segment, Williams fields such queries as “Have you ever cried because of Game of Thrones?”, “What does Sophie Turner smell like?” (the answer – “Heaven” – is provided by co-star Turner herself) and “Do you have a boyfriend?”
“Yes, I do,” Williams says. “And that’s all we’ll say about that.”
Williams also shares her passion for Shark Week, shares a childhood nickname, and reminisces on a favorite memory before ending her first video. As it turns out, the endeavor was success – though in typical Game of Thrones fashion, no victory comes without sacrifice.
Got so excited about my channel that I dropped (and smashed) ma phone. Goodness 😅
