LONDON, Sept. 9 (UPI) -- English actress Maisie Williams launched her own YouTube channel Tuesday.

The actress admitted Game of Thrones has made her cry, citing Ygritte's (Rose Leslie) fate as one tear-jerking moment. Co-star Sophie Turner, who portrays Sansa Stark, made a quick cameo, but Williams was careful not to give away any season 6 secrets.

The teenager has portrayed Arya since the series' premiere in 2011, and will return for season 6 in 2016. She accepted a Guinness World Record for Largest TV Drama Simulcast on behalf of the show last week, as season 5, episode 2 was broadcast in a record 173 countries Apr. 19.

Williams will guest star on season 9 of BBC series Doctor Who, which premieres Sept. 19. The actress is also scheduled for The Devil in the Deep Blue Sea with Jason Sudeikis, and rumored for an adaptation of the video game The Last of Us.
