If there are a pair of sisters who have been through more than Game of Thrones' Stark sisters, I don't want to meet them. The duo began the series as young squabbling siblings who take a journey south, only to watch their family be torn apart over seven seasons. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Sophie Turner (Lady of Winterfell herself, Sansa Stark) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark, formerly No One) share how emotional wrapping the eighth and final season actually was for them, considering they've had a decade-long run playing the Stark sisters.
Turner reveals she cried after filming her last scene, "because I cry at everything." As for Williams, she took a long shower and grabbed a beer with the crew as they called a wrap on the series. "I didn't go out that night because I didn't want to say goodbye to everyone again," she admitted. "You can't be like 'Goodbye forever' to this show. It's like a divorce. It takes a very long time."
Turner and Williams have been part of GOT since they were 13 and 12 years old (now 23 and 21), respectively, and are finally closing a chapter to a decade-long run in Westeros. But before they move on to battling X-Men and other exciting new roles, we have one more season with the Stark girls. Keep reading to learn exactly how Williams gets dark and twisty for everyone's favorite murderer and Turner's take on Sansa's rise to power.
