Since HBO’s Game of Thrones aired for nearly a decade, it’s no surprise that its cast formed some pretty tight bonds. When you’re working with someone every day for eight years, it’s probably a good idea to share a good relationship with them. The show concluded its last episode almost a year ago – while many of the cast members have gone their separate ways and moved on with their lives, some have stayed close, like Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams.

Their relationship on-screen was never really close. Sophie played Sansa Stark, who was the older sister of the wild child, Arya Stark, who was played by Maisie. There were many ups and downs between the two characters, but off-screen, Sophie and Maisie were slowly becoming major BFF goals. Want to know how close they really are? Keep on reading!

15 They Basically Grew Up Together

When Game of Thrones first started filming, Sophie and Maisie were barely even teenagers! They met when they were 12 and 13, meaning they pretty much grew up together during their time on GoT. Since they were so similar in age, it didn’t take long for them to form a pretty serious bond.

It’s obvious that Maisie and Sophie aren’t afraid to physically express their friendship. This has caused many people to believe their relationship might be a little more than platonic.

11 They’ve Always Been There For Each Other

Going through puberty is hard enough – we can’t imagine having those years documented so closely for the whole world to see. Since Sophie and Maisie were both growing up at the same time, it caused them to become even closer.

What’s even worse is that Maisie’s character had to have a shaved head around that time – that can certainly mess with a person’s psyche when it comes to body image, especially in the teenage years. Good thing she had Sophie helping her through it the whole time.

10 But Their Relationship Once Had A Destructive Side

Sophie Turner once described her relationship with Maisie Williams as “quite destructive”, and it wasn’t because of their on-set antics.

I guess we should all get BFFs that we can shut out the world with?

9 They Have Their Own Nickname

Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner’s relationship has become so popular, they even have their own nickname. But it wasn’t fans that pinned it on them – it was actually the girls themselves.

7 They Celebrate A Special Day Together

Both Maisie and Sophie found out on the same day that they had landed their roles on Game of Thrones. They got the good news on August 7th, 2009, and since it’s also the day that brought them together, it holds a very special place in their hearts. Sophie once posted a photo of her and Maisie to her Instagram, captioning it “Happy 7th August soulm8”.

1 They’ve Gone Through Some Dark Times, But They’ve Always Supported Each Other
