The huge success of the hit HBO fantasy drama series Game of Thrones has made household names of a number of young stars who almost nobody had really heard of until their appearance on the show. British actress Sophie Turner has risen to stardom in the role of Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones, while fellow actress Maisie Williams plays the role of her sister Arya Stark in the series.
Being such a young star on the rise in the entertainment industry, it is always nice having somebody else along side you who is going through the same thing, which has brought Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams close together. Sophie has now been talking about her friendship with Maisie admitting that the two of them manage to keep one another grounded.
During a recent interview with Access Hollywood, Turner explained, "Definitely. It gives you a friend that you can like relate things to and be like, ‘Is this normal?’ You kind of learn together and grow together and your friends don’t understand it and you kind of need someone to talk to about it. I think we keep each other kind of grounded."
Fans of the two young actresses, and those who are fans of the show in general, can continue to see Sophie Turner in her role as Sansa Stark, and Maisie Williams in her role as Arya Stark, in Game of Thrones which is now in its fourth season and continues to air on HBO in the US on Sunday evenings, before airing on Sky Atlantic in the UK on Monday nights.
