Entertainment TV 'GoT' 's Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams 'Tried to Sneak a Kiss Into Every Scene' Together "People always think Maisie and I are a couple," Sophie Turner revealed By Natalie Stone Published on February 28, 2019 07:45 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams may play siblings on Game of Thrones, but their off-screen bond is as close to sisterhood as it comes. This April, Turner and Williams will return to their roles as Sansa Stark and Arya Stark, respectively, for season 8 — the series’ last, which will conclude the HBO drama. Weeks before the premiere airs, the costars-turned-best friends spoke with Glamour UK for the publication’s Spring/Summer 2019 issue and dished on their real-life love for one another, as well as the “sneaky” (and intimate!) on-set prank they pull on the cast and crew. “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,” Turner, 23, told the outlet. Amy E. Price/Getty Williams, 21, shared similar sentiments about her on-camera big sister. “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!’ ” said Williams. While it’s no secret that the pair is thick as thieves — even wearing matching Halloween costumes — Turner clarified that she and Williams aren’t romantic.

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!” said Turner, who is engaged to Joe Jonas. Still, the besties lock lips from time to time. “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,” she said about their on-set tease. During the 2016 Emmy Awards, Turner opened up about her close friendship with Williams, which they commemorated with matching tattoos. Turner showed off her ink — which matches Williams’ art — on the red carpet, revealing the meaning behind her peach “07.08.09.” “We’ve always kind of said we wanted matching tattoos,” Turner told E! News, joking, “It’s still a bit crusty.” Sophie Turner Wasn’t Allowed to Wash Her Hair While Filming Game of Thrones The date was “always really significant,” Turner said, adding that it signifies the exact day both were cast in Game of Thrones. (The girls — who are “best friends,” according to Turner — got their tats while visiting U.K.-based tattoo artist Miss Kat Paine.) “With Thrones, we were always planning since season one, if we make it all the way through we can get like a matching wolf or something,” said Turner. “We don’t know if we’re going to make it, so Maisie and I were like let’s get these ones before somebody kills us or something.” Game of Thrones returns April 14 on HBO.
