About Maisie Williams:
Maisie Williams is an English actress. She made her professional acting debut as Arya Stark of Winterfell in the television series Game of Thrones. Williams has also had a recurring role in Doctor Who as Ashildr in 2015. In addition to television, she made her feature film debut in the mystery The Falling (2014).
On August 1 2018, Williams launched a new social media app called Daisie, aimed at creating a network for creative people, with co-founder Dom Santry with whom she also has founded the film production company Daisy Chain Productions. Daisie is aimed at creative people from the worlds of art, fashion, TV, film, photography, music and literature. Its aim is to bring creatives across industries together, help foster collaboration with other artists and hopefully provide an alternative route into the ‘creative industries’. Williams said “Our main goal is to have a community of artists who are collaborating with each other, uploading their work, sharing their projects and ultimately … help people with their own careers, rather than our own”
