They’re the fearless Stark sisters, and after eight years and countless memories, they may as well be sisters off screen, too.
Yes, Game of Thrones duo Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams are as thick as thieves, so you can imagine the pair’s reaction to last night’s surprise sex scene involving Arya Stark and Gendry (Joe Dempsie) of House Baratheon.
It was undoubtedly one of the biggest talking points once the credits rolled on “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms,” as the Internet began freaking out over Williams’ age and what this newfound relationship means for the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones.
Could it be that Gendry has emerged as something of a dark horse to inherit the Iron Throne? We’ll find out in due course. In the meantime, Sophie Turner has shared a decidedly NSFW reaction to Arya’s most intimate moment. The Thrones stalwart was answering all sorts of questions about X-Men: Dark Phoenix this past weekend, but soon broke course in order to raise a glass to her younger sister.

Early on in the development of Game of Thrones season 8, Sophie Turner was among the first to find out about Arya and Gendry’s big moment, and sure enough, she contacted Maisie Williams immediately to discuss “A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.”
I called Maisie and was like: ‘Have you read it yet?’ And she’s like, ‘I’m midway though episode one.’ And I’m like: This scene, this page, read it! This is awesome! She was very happy..
Getting back to the Battle of Winterfell, though, and it seems the Night King has already identified his target as Game of Thrones season 8 begins to reach its fiery crescendo. We’ll give you a clue: he’s no longer a man, but a curious, all-seeing bird with three eyes…
