Game of Thrones stars Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams talk about their on-screen reunion
It is the season of reunions on Game of Thrones and most of the character meet ups so far haven’t disappointed. Almost every reunion on season 7 has had a unique factor, like Tyrion and Jon’s comical one, Davos and Dragonstone’s nostalgic one, Bran and Sansa’s awkward one, and finally, Arya and Sansa‘s emotional one. The Stark family is finally coming together and fans couldn’t be happier. Though we’re not the only ones who are happy about Winterfell’s lords and ladies reuniting. Actors Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams who play Sansa and Arya respectively, talked about their characters’ reunion in this week’s explosive episode, ‘The Spoils of War‘. That Maisie and Sophie are really close friends in real life is common knowledge, so them working together in a professional environment again was a bit weird for them, as the actresses have revealed in an interview with EW.
“Our first scene together was our reunion scene and we f—ed up so many times,” said Sophie. “We couldn’t keep a straight face! Our relationship is so close, but it’s only that fun side, never the business side. I was nervous. It just terrified me. It’s like performing for your mom. When somebody is watching you don’t do it quite as well.”
Maisie was on the same page. She said, “It was the weirdest thing when we shot our first scene together. We were both embarrassed to do our thing in front of each other. It took a few hours for us to get serious and actually do it. Later it was fine on set and we could concentrate, but it was so hard to get into character with Sophie in front of me.”
Sophie and Maisie have always expressed their love for each other on social media, and after this weeks episode, it was no different. Maisie took to twitter and sent this cute message to her best friend:
Honey, am home @SophieT

Let’s hope things are just as peachy on Game of Thrones for these badass women as they are off screen. Though since it’s Game of Thrones, we can’t really assume that will be the case, one can at least hope. What did you guys think of the episode and the latest Stark family reunion?
