Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams' friendship off 'Game of Thrones' is more precious than the Iron Throne

Amid the treachery, bloodshed and intrigue on offer by the HBO show, one thing that shines through is the off-screen friendship of the two actresses


                            Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams' friendship off 'Game of Thrones' is more precious than the Iron Throne

HBO's mammoth production 'Game of Thrones' may come to an end after its finale season that premiere's this month, but the show will leave behind quite a few legacies.

We will remember the excitement around every episode, the infamous leaks last season, the amazing production value, dragons and of course, the iconic friendship that co-stars Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams have forged through the last eight years on the show.

At this point, the two are more than friends - they are almost like siblings. When the two stepped out for the 'Game of Thrones' season 8 premiere in New York City on Wednesday, a laughing Turner told Entertainment Tonight, "I don't know why she's thinking about [what she's wearing to my wedding]. I'm giving her the bridesmaid dress! She's my maid of honor! One of two."

If romantic comedies through the years have taught us anything, it is this - nothing seals the deal like a MOH responsibility when you're friends.

In case you didn't know, Sophie is engaged to Jo Bro Joe Jonas and this will probably be the first time Sophie's on-screen sis will have the opportunity to parade around in a bridesmaid dress for her older on-screen sis Turner, since on the show so far, Sophie's weddings haven't been the happiest, to put it lightly.

Their characters on the show, who are The North vs Westeros opposites of each other, finally reunited last season after going through not just perilous journeys of blistering colds and dangerous faceless men, but also great loss and sacrifice.

The last time we saw them being the boss ladies that they are on the show, the two had actually come back to being a team. While we can only hope that that continues, since you know this is GoT, Turner and Williams' real-life friendship sure is without doubts or blemish something enduring.

They say if you've been friends with someone for more than 7 years, you are friends for life. These two have definitely crossed that threshold and more. They became fast friends all the way back in 2011, when the 'GoT' fever hadn't yet caught on the way it has today.

"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," Maisie told Rolling Stones in an interview,  "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."

Since then, the two have given birth to the hashtag "Mophie" dedicated to their friendship, got matching tattoos and made sure that they look near perfect on every red carpet - who can forget the iconic moment when Sophie stepped in as cameras flashed to fix Maisie's train on the Golden Globes 2017 red carpet?

 

Actress Anna Kendrick was so floored when she witnessed this moment, she Instagrammed it saying, "I made them let me take a photo because my heart couldn't take how bananas cute it was."   

 

If that wasn't enough, these two have also been known to "freak people out" by pretending to be a couple. Sophie revealed in an interview to Glamour UK, "People always think Maisie and I are a couple. I mean, I am obsessed with her, so you never know...I've got an addiction to Maisie Williams. I actually stalk her hashtag on Instagram." 

She went on to add, "Even though we are sisters [in Game of Thrones], we tried to sneak a kiss into every scene we did together to freak everyone out a bit. It kept them on their toes making sure they were following the script."

If they didn't think you were gay for your BFF are you even BFFs, really.

In a world where it doesn't take a second for women to pit themselves against one another, Sophie and Maisie simply do not care about bringing each other down and if this isn't more precious than the Iron Throne, we don't know what is.
