Maisie Williams shows love for her Stark sister Sophie Turner ahead of 'Game of Thrones' season 8 premiere
The two have grown up together as they worked on one of the most popular millennial TV shows — 'Game of Thrones' and played the roles of Arya Stark and Sansa Stark
Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner are the best of friends and the two have shown their love for each other on social media several times before. From going to parties together to making goofy poses together, they have done a lot in the past.
This time, Maisie posted a magazine cover featuring the two of them and wrote, "get u someone who holds u like dis (sic)." The two have grown up together as they worked on one of the most popular millennial TV shows — 'Game of Thrones' and played the roles of Arya Stark and Sansa Stark.
Their characters also happen to be two fan favorites since the show began, especially Arya. As the series comes to a close this year, the two Stark sisters have been featured on many magazine covers and interviews together.
This cover for Rolling Stone is one of the many. On the cover, Maisie is sporting a bubblegum pink hair while Sophie is blonde and the two are seen in white outfits holding each other. The issue is about the two of them growing up together and how their sisterhood evolved.
In the interview with the magazine, Maisie said, "I thought Sophie was the coolest thing I’d ever seen. I get why they do chemistry reads because when it’s right, it’s so right. Like, we’re best friends. And they could see that all those years ago, and it must have been real magic watching these two girls have the best time together." This was when Maisie was all of 12 years old and Sophie was 13.
After working together on season 1, Sophie and Maisie never shared screen space until their reunion in season seven, which aired in 2017.
The actors spoke a bit about this as well. Sophie, especially said how this was for the best as one can never work with their best friends around. She said, "If you’re working with your best friend, you will never get any work done, ever. Anytime we tried to be serious about anything, it’s just the hardest thing in the world. I think they really regretted putting us in scenes together. It was difficult."
'Game of Thrones' season 8, the final season of the show, will air on April 14 and consist only of six episodes. The show also stars Kit Harrington, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey among others.
