I think we can all agree that since Game of Thrones finished we’ve had nowhere near enough Maisie Williams in our lives.
That’s all about to change, though, because everyone’s favourite White Walker slayer just announced the launch of a new podcast, Frank Film Club, in which she’ll be chatting about movies with three friends who work in the industry.
“I wanted to start this film club because in order to make good films you have to probably have watched a lot of good films,” Williams explained in the podcast intro. “At the beginning of the pandemic we set up this film club just between ourselves, to push ourselves to watch great movies in our off-time. But we decided to bring this to you guys and bring it to an audience, and so we hope that maybe you guys can watch along with us, and watch movies that maybe you wouldn’t have chosen to pick otherwise.”
Along with Williams, the other members of the podcast include filmmaker Lowri Roberts, producer Chloe Culpin, and casting director Hannah Marie Williams. The podcast will focus on a mixture of indies, classics, foreign language and blockbuster films, with new episodes dropping each week on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Frank Film Club is available on Apple, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts, with the first episode set to drop soon. The first film up for discussion is Sarah Gavron’s brilliant movie Rocks.
This isn’t Williams’ first entrepreneurial venture, in fact, she’s been actively supporting emerging creatives for years. Back in August 2018, she launched a social media app called Daisie, designed to help people connect with each other for creative collaboration. Williams also has two production companies: Daisy Chain Productions, which she set up with her friend Dom Santry and actor Bill Milner, and Pint-Sized Pictures, which aims to showcase female talent.
