When you think of Maisie Williams, the first image to spring to mind is probably that of list-keeping badass Arya Stark. But did you know the Game of Thrones star is also an entrepreneur?

Well, she is now. On Wednesday, her app Daisie — which she co-founded with film producer Dom Santry — launches in the App Store.

.@daisieapp will be launching later on today, stay tuned for the exact time you can find us in the App Store! 🧡🚀

Daisie is essentially a networking app for people in creative industries like film, photography, literature, fashion, music, and art — a place where people can make connections and find others who may want to work with them on a project.

“Previous to Daisie, success in the creative industries was wholly dependent on luck and ‘ins’ to the industry," Williams said in a statement. "Daisie introduces a new way into the creative world; through connections made organically and the natural development of your skills, propelling individuals to the next level. 

"We’re so excited to facilitate the future of creative collaboration.”

Prior to the app's launch, Williams took to Twitter to answers some questions about Daisie.

We’ve removed follow counts, your profile grows with the amount of connections you make.

QTs will bridge the gap between industry leaders and aspiring creators. Think reddit AMA with a splash of Masterclass

I’ve never felt like I was in a position to be giving people advice on how to start their careers, since my arrival into the industry was such a serendipitous stroke of luck. With @daisieapp I hope to provide the tools that other creators may need to start their journey🧡 #daisie https://t.co/4KbaocNakG

I’ve learnt so much in the last 2 years. The main thing being that it’s a process not dissimilar to making a film - It requires time, creativity and patience! I never dreamt of becoming a founder.
Even if people think you’re crazy, never stop pushing yourself 🧡 https://t.co/d9kRVttQCg

Williams has been working on Daisie for a while now. A couple of months back she shared a video on her YouTube channel, following her and co-founder Santry as they took meetings about the app in LA.

Daisie launches in the App Store on Wednesday at 2pm BST, and will be available on Android at a later stage. You can find out more information about the app on daisie.com.
