‘Game of Thrones’ star has been confirmed as a guest judge on ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race UK’.
The 22-year-old actress made her final appearance as Arya Stark in the ‘Game of Thrones’ finale on Sunday night (19.05.19), and one of her next jobs will see her be a panellist on the BBC Three show later this year.
“What I love the most about drag is the story of the drag queen behind the facade.
“I think that so much of drag comes from a place of real pain and seeing how that transforms into a character is so interesting to me. I love that about art and about drag.”
The show is “coming soon” on BBC Three.
A tweet on the BBC Three Twitter account read: “It’s official: @Maisie_Williams has been confirmed as a guest judge for RuPaul’s Drag Race UK @dragraceukbbc
Coming soon to BBC Three (sic)”
Spice Girls singers Geri Horner and Emma Bunton are also expected to be guest judges on the show alongside RuPaul and Michelle Visage, and rotating residents Alan Carr and Graham Norton.
A source recently said: ”
Geri is the perfect fit for Drag Race because she’s funny and fearless. Plus she knows exactly what she’s talking about.
“When Geri takes part she’ll be faced with a couple of wannabe acts and maybe a Spice Girls hit or two.”
What’s more, Graham and Alan are delighted about joining the show.
“Becoming part of the drag race family makes me ridiculously happy! I can’t wait to see what the UK drag queens bring to the party, but they better weeeeerk.”
“Wow! To be sat next to Michelle Visage and Mama Ru as a guest judge on possibly one of my all-time favourite shows ever is a dream come true.
“I can’t wait to see what the UK Queens have got in store – it’s going to be sickening.”
