Sansa and Arya Stark have often had a contentious relationship on Game of Thrones, but in real life, actresses Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams are apparently best buds. Speaking of "buds," Turner revealed the two stars apparently had Thrones sleepovers that consisted of stupid YouTube videos, makeup sessions, and getting high in bathtubs after filming.
We're kind of like loners on Game of Thrones, just because the past few seasons Maisie and I have sleepovers every night when we're shooting. Or every night whenever both of us are in town. We just used to sit there and eat and watch stupid videos and smoke weed. I don't know if my publicist will kill me for saying this. We'd get high and then we'd sit in the bath together and we'd rub makeup brushes on our faces. It's fun.
That's quite the revelation. It's one thing to be close to a co-star, but getting high while sitting a bathtub together is a completely different level of comfort. Publicists be damned, Sophie Turner had no problem letting the world know about her off-set exploits with Maisie Williams while filming Game of Thrones. which perhaps shows that the two are just as tight-knit as fans may have guessed.
Sophie Turner wasn't specific about when these bathtub smoke sessions happened, But there was a photo that circulated the web in 2016 that Turner posted showing she and Maisie Williams dressed up as 4/20-friendly Brownie scouts for Halloween.
That same night, Williams posted a picture with the stars out of their costumes and somewhat undressed, with a bathtub behind them. Williams's caption about it being a "noooorrrrty" weekend makes it sound like something happened that was fun enough to share in an interview two years later.
Could this be at least one of the night sSophie Turner was referring to? Apparently, these nights happened often enough to make them "loners" on the set, which implies if the two were anywhere around each other, they were hanging out. It only makes Sansa and Arya's general distaste for each other more fascinating to watch on Game of Thrones. The sisters rarely shared the same opinion, let alone bongs and bathtubs.
The pair's friendship didn't begin with a bathtub toke session, however. Sophie Turner also revealed to Vulture they first met during the audition process for Game of Thrones. The stars co-mingled during a chemistry read for Sansa Stark, and Turner admitted she was "super extra" and over the top in their first exchange. But that clearly didn't affect the two from forming a bond when they were both cast as the Stark sisters.
Game of Thrones is set to air its final season on HBO sometime in 2019. For more on television shows premiering before that and where to find them, be sure to visit and bookmark our fall premiere guide.
