She might not have control over Westeros, but Maisie Williams certainly has a good grip on social media. The “Game of Thrones” actress joined YouTube on Tuesday. Williams is known for her social media interest. She already has 300,000 Vine followers, 1.4 million Instagram followers and 1 million Twitter followers. Her latest social media venture isn’t expected to be a regular habit though.
“I’m mainly going to have videos that make me laugh, sketches. It’s not going to be somewhere that I post regularly,” Williams explained in the video. “It’ll just be every now and then, something that made me smile or an idea that I had to let my creative juices out, I guess.”
Williams is a little too busy to stick to a regular vlogging schedule. The actress, who plays Arya Stark, has been photographed filming “Game of Thrones Season 6 in Girona, Spain. Before she went to set, she accepted a Guinness World Record for largest TV drama simulcast on behalf of the HBO drama.
The video contains plenty of material for “Game of Thrones” fans. She answers questions about the show, and there is even a cameo from one of her co-stars. Sophie Turner, who plays her sister Sansa, pops in when a question is asked about her.
Spoiler-phobes beware: Williams reveals what happens to her character at the end of “Game of Thrones” Season 5. If you haven’t watched it yet, stop the video before 2:15 and skip to 2:28. Watch "Welcome to my channel" below:
This isn’t Williams’ first foray into YouTube. The actress has appeared in videos with Caspar Lee and Superfruit as well as the Fine Brothers’ “Teens React” series. Williams, 18, explained that she wanted to launch her own channel after seeing so many of her friends’ clips.
“The main reason is today I’m going to be doing a Q&A to celebrate reaching 1 million followers on Twitter,” Williams said. “But also because I have a lot of friends who are on YouTube, and I just find it really, really interesting what they do and I thought I’d give it a shot myself.”
As of Tuesday morning, Williams had 14,972 subscribers. Viewers can subscribe to her channel to be notified when she uploads new videos.
