Aside from Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, the greatest love story to come out of Game of Thrones is that of Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner. On the show the two, who play Arya and Sansa Stark, squabble like real-life sisters but IRL the pair are total besties and are basically inseparable; which is unsurprising since they’ve spent a lot of time working together since they were 12 and 13. So in celebration of the final season of Game of Thrones (sob) we’ve rounded up 15 times they were BFF goals. Seriously, can we join their squad?
When they got matching tattoos
The pair got matching tattoos on their inner arms that read 07.08.09 which commemorates the date both actresses were cast in Game of Thrones.
When Maisie congratulated Sophie on her engagement to Joe Jonas
When they invented their own name for their relationship
When they always had each other’s backs
When they tried to sneak a kiss into every scene of GoT
The pair have admitted to playing plenty of pranks while on the set of Thrones but one thing they did consistently was trying to sneak a kiss into every scene they were in together, “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.”
When they both said Ned Stark would be proudest of each other
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly they were both asked who their fictional father, Ned Stark, would be most proud of and they both responded with each other. We wish our real-life sisters would say that about us!
When they called each other their soulmate
When speaking with INSIDER at the season seven premiere, Sophie Turner said (of Maisie Williams) “She’s my best friend, she’s my soulmate. I love that girl to pieces,” and the two have since captioned many an Instagram post with soul mates.
