Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner has revealed she loves kissing her on-screen sister, Maisie Williams.

Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark in the HBO fantasy show, revealed that she is so close to Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, that people frequently mistake them for a couple.

In a joint interview with Glamour magazine, Turner said: “People always think Maisie and I are a couple.

“I mean, I am obsessed with her, so you never know… I’ve got an addiction to Maisie Williams. I actually stalk her hashtag on Instagram!”

Turner added that they enjoy sharing same-sex kisses: “Even though we are sisters [in Game of Thrones], we tried to sneak a kiss into every scene we did together to freak everyone out a bit.

“It kept them on their toes’ making sure they were following the script.”

Speaking about her friendship with Williams, the Game of Thrones actor said: “Maisie is definitely my protector and I’m hers, too.

“I know if anything happened – especially if it was on Game Of Thrones, which it never, ever would – she’d go crazy and protect me… Maisie is my strong home.”

Williams added: “Whenever I’m like, ‘I need help! This is bigger than anything I can sort out on my own,’ Sophie is my point of call.”

Game of Thrones returns for its eighth and final season in April.

Sophie Turner wanted Sansa Stark to be bisexual

Turner previously said she wants her character Sansa to be bisexual, quipping: “In the Game of Thrones universe, I think she’s going to have to swing the other way – because the men thing isn’t working for her.”

Asked who she would like Sansa to end up with, she replied: “Arya, because I’d like to see that happen. I’d love a love scene between Arya and Sansa.”

Maisie Williams on her sexuality

In an interview in 2016, Maisie Williams said she does not label her sexuality.

She told Nylon: “here is a label for everything now, which is okay, because some people need labels.

“I’ve never sat up and thought about my sexuality for hours. It’s like what Shailene Woodley said: ‘I fall in love with personalities and not people or genders.’

“I have no problem with anyone who would want to be labelled, but I also think that it is no one’s business. Do what you want.”
