It’s been clear for some time that Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams are an inseparable pair. In Game of Thrones the two actors play Sansa and Arya Stark, sisters who hate each others’ guts – but in real life they’re always together at promotional events for the show, and they share posts together on Instagram and Vine all the time. Buzzfeed has documented their best moments, and they’ve even christened themselves ‘Mophie’. It’s a real thing.
Now, the pair have got matching tattoos, which Sophie Turner showed off for the first time last night (September 18) at the Emmy Awards – where Game of Thrones broke Frasier’s record for the most Emmys won by a series. The tattoos are in peach, so you can barely see them (Turner says her mum told her “make sure it doesn’t show up.”) And what have they gone for? Not a Stark direwolf, nor a white walker. Not the Iron Throne or a map of Westeros. No, they’ve chosen a date – 07.08.09 – that’s very special to them: the day they found out they were both cast in Game of Thrones. Now, unless they’ve been won over by the American calendar system, we’re fairly sure that means 7th August, 2009.
