Maisie Williams stars in Freya Ridings‘ music video for her new single “You Mean the World to Me,” directed by Lena Headey!

The Game of Thrones co-stars, ages 21 and 45, respectively, collaborated on the project for the 24-year-old English singer.

“You Mean the World to Me” is the title track from Lena‘s five-song EP, released today (March 1). Her self-titled studio debut album is set to drop this summer.

The visual – which marks Lena‘s directing debut – follows Maisie‘s character’s emotional journey and tells the story of family dynamics, resilience, and holding tight when things feel like they may never change.

“I had such an emotional response to Freya’s voice and the song,” Maisie said. “We had a few versions of this video, some were considered too dark, I think we achieved a version that allows us to see Freya in a raw, emotional performance. And the family element is what the song is all about.”
