From slaying the Night King to just slaying full stop, Maisie Williams is the first celebrity guest judge to be confirmed for RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, due on BBC Three later this year.


Bristol-born Maisie stars as Arya Stark in Game Of Thrones, a role she's played since the age of 13. Now aged 22, she is a global name, a fashionista and a huge fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

When asked to be one of RuPaul’s extra-special judges, Maisie jumped at the chance. Talking about her love of drag, she says: “What I love the most 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."


RuPaul’s Drag Race UK will showcase the most fabulous drag queens the country has to offer.

Maisie will feature as a celebrity judge for one episode, appearing alongside RuPaul and Michelle Visage. Graham Norton and Alan Carr will appear as rotating resident judges across the eight-part series, as previously announced.


The RuPaul's Drag Race franchise, including RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, is produced by World of Wonder.
