Maisie Williams confirmed as guest judge for RuPaul's Drag Race UK

Yas Maisie, slay.

Game of Thrones ends tonight. Or rather, it ended last night if you're in the States or very early this morning if you got up to watch the final ever episode before work.

Either way, it's done, it's over, and now we can get back to having nothing to look forward to for the rest of our lives.

Great.

However, there is a rather substantial silver lining in that all of our favourite actors now get to go and throw themselves into other projects that may not achieve similar cult status but are still decent enough shouts.

One of those people is Maisie Williams, and in fairness to her she's joining a show that's probably got a similar enough fanbase in terms of scale and dedication.

Doing well for herself, fair play.

Deadline reports that Maisie was confirmed as a guest judge for the upcoming season of RuPaul's Drag Race UK today.

She'll be sitting alongside Michelle Visage on the judging panel as a shower of British queens attempt to prove that they've got enough charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent to be crowned the UK's next drag superstar.

She said:

β€œWhat 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.”

Graham Norton and Alan Carr have already been confirmed as celebrity judges themselves, so it's fair enough to say that there's going to be a decent stack of stars showing up in a few months time.

The new series will come after the current season of the US version of the show wraps up.

Brooke Lynn Hytes, A'Keria C Davenport, Silky Nutmeg Ganache, and Yvie Oddly are the last four remaining queens battling it out for the crown.
