The Game of Thrones star swaps her kill for her musical thrill list in her 10Trax guest edit.
Over the past eight years, we’ve watched actress Maisie Williams transform from a cute ‘needle’ wielding tom-boy to a bold, badass assassin as Arya Stark in what has arguably become the world’s biggest TV series, Game of Thrones. Her somewhat successful revenge mission has made her a firm fan favourite, and left viewers hoping that she’ll survive the shows blood-drenched climax when it airs next Spring.
As the sun sets on GoT, the 21-year-old has already set her sights on her next project. Earlier this year she launched her very own app, Daisie, a unique platform which unites creative individuals and offers up the opportunity to meet and collaborate with like-minded young talents.“I want Daisie to give other creatives the opportunities that I was lucky enough to receive at the beginning of my career. Daisie will break down the archaic gap between youth and creative jobs; offering new opportunities for individuals to collaborate, learn and create.” She says of her thought process behind the app.
Upgrading her kill list to her musical thrill list, the actress-turned-CEO selects the #10Trax that she can’t stop listening to.

"This song is guaranteed to get me dancing around my bedroom like an idiot!"
James Blake – ‘Don’t Miss It’
"I listen to at least one James Blake song a day but if I had to pick the one I’ve got on repeat right now it would be don’t miss it."
L’impératrice – ‘Erreur 404’

"I challenge anyone who says yoga is boring to try out some stretches to this song. Makes the whole experience a lot more fun in my opinion."
FKA twigs – ‘Two Weeks’
"Been listening to a lot of synths recently, FKA twigs always comes through with a killer track. This song also makes me feel about 50% sexier after listening. "
