Here's how 'Game of Thrones' star Maisie Williams got co-star Sophie Turner to wish her on her birthday
Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams play the Stark sisters on 'Game of Thrones'. Their friendship has been spoken about quite a lot with the two sharing much love and affection for each other. So, when we saw Turner share a birthday post for Williams on Instagram, it was not surprising. She shared a picture of a young and adorable looking Williams and wrote, "Happy birthday to my ride or die." Only, minutes after, Williams, who turned 22-years-old, reshared the story on Instagram and added some background information too.
So, how many of you have asked your girlfriends to post an Instagram story on your birthday? Yes! Williams did exactly that. Turner had, earlier in the day, shared that she was listening to her fiance's song S.O.S and Williams replied, "Put up a story of mm (me) right now b****." Once Turner did, she replied, "Thank u." Williams shared a screenshot of this conversation on Instagram and captioned it, "best friends". The two have been setting friendship goals since they began working together by sharing their love for each other on social media and hanging out offscreen whenever possible too.
From red carpets appearances to fun weekend parties, they have done it all. Recently, speaking about their friendship to Glamour UK, Turner said, "Maisie is definitely my protector and I'm hers, too. I know if anything happened -- especially if it was on 'Game Of Thrones,' which it never, ever would -- she’d go crazy and protect me. ... Maisie is my strong home."
"People always think Maisie and I are a couple," she added. "I mean, I am obsessed with her, so you never know. ... I’ve got an addiction to Maisie Williams." Williams also shared how Turner had helped her through tough times and said, "Sophie knows too much about me to not be my friend. I can’t tell you the amount of times Sophie said, 'Go to therapy,' before I actually did. She really helped me through some messy break-ups and some friend break-ups. Whenever I’m like, 'I need help! This is bigger than anything I can sort out on my own,' Sophie is my point of call. I think therapy is so important. You should absolutely speak to someone, even if in your head you go, 'Yeah, I knew that!'"
Williams will be Turner's bridesmaid at her wedding to singer Joe Jonas which is expected to take place in Summer 2019.
