Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams may play a budding assassin by day, but by night, she’s taking on a different role: YouTuber.

The 18-year-old actress launched her new YouTube channel with a Q&A video early Tuesday, explaining that it was a way to celebrate her one million Twitter followers. But Williams also has ties to the YouTube community—she’s appeared on multiple episodes of the Fine BrothersTeens React and has guest-starred in videos with Caspar Lee and SUPERFRUIT (Pentatonix’s Scott Hoying and Mitch Grassi).

“I have a lot of friends who are in YouTube, and I just find it really, really interesting what they do and I thought I’d give it a shot myself,” Williams explained.

Although Williams said that she wouldn’t be posting on a regular basis, she plans to use her channel to share anything that makes her laugh, plus short sketches and likely more Q&As. In the video below, she covers everything from Game of Thrones and Arya’s blind contacts to questions about her personal life and embarrassing moments in the business—along with a cameo from her TV sister Sophie Turner.

Many of Williams’ fans weren’t surprise to see her start a YouTube channel; she been tweeting about it for some time now, beginning with figuring out the logistics of it.

As she’s demonstrated, she’s already having a pretty authentic YouTube experience. From asking her fans for questions for her first video…

…to getting used to the editing process…

…and experiencing the many woes that come with editing.

She also had plenty of teases for the people who were awaiting her first video.

But just with so many other YouTubers, even when everything finally went according to plan, some technical difficulties still occured.

She’s already a pro.
