Maisie Williams is passionate about protecting dolphins, and she recently took to the sky to raise money and awareness.

The Game of Thrones star jumped out of a "perfectly good airplane" for dolphins on Saturday.

"I will be jumping out of a perfectly good, working airplane at 15,000ft to raise awareness and funds for @Dolphin_Project. You can skydive on the same day as me if you're interested. Seriously debating whether I should just quit this acting thing and become a skydiver..." she wrote on the Crowdrise page Maisie Jump 4 Dolphins.

From Skydive99, which coordinated the jump:

Maisie Williams from popular TV series “Doctor Who” and “Game of Thrones” skydived for her favourite charities today. Skydive took place at Skydive.Buzz in Devon and she opted for the maximum height possible without oxygen 15000 feet. She was raising money for Mencap and the Dolphin Project. She was joined on her skydive by another celebrity American actor and founder of the Dolphin Project Richard O’Barry.

Maisie took off in the world’s fastest skydiving plane Beech99 and in 10 minutes was at 15,000 feet. She loved all parts of the skydive, freefall, canopy ride and the fact that she was joined by a wingsuiter (Mike Williams).

When asked, what was her favourite part of the skydive, Maisie said she liked all of it.

“I just loved spiralling fast through parts of the cloud and when you come out - its so beautiful. I love the whole thing.” When asked by a freefall camera man if she could become a full time skydiver, Maisie said: “I would love to!”
