- Sophie Turner reveals that she and Maisie Williams would try and kiss whenever they had a scene together in Game of Thrones.
- Direct quote: ‘Sometimes you just wanna make out with your best friend.’
Game of Thrones might be over, but Sophie Turner’s new movie Dark Phoenix just came out this weekend, meaning that Sophie is still on a press tour and still being asked to talk about her time on GoT.
We’ve already gotten some pretty A+ tidbits, including Sophie telling a story about a time when her husband Joe Jonas was visiting the set and accidentally tried to kiss her photo double because she looked so similar to Sophie. Awkward! But apparently, there was way more kissing than that happening on set, mostly because Sophie and her best friend Maisie Williams (who played Arya, duh) would try to kiss whenever possible.
While on Conan this week, Conan O’Brien talked to Sophie about her relationship with Maisie, saying, ‘there were people who thought, you two were so close, they thought, ‘are you a couple?’ And Sophie replies, ‘Oh, we full knew about it, we played into it…so on the set, we would do the scene, and then we would try to, you know, just try to kiss each other in the middle of the scene and see if anyone would react. And it’s Game of Thrones, so incest is so normal, that they were just like, ‘that’s fine.” Lol!
She also adds, ‘it was probably the most tame thing that happened on the show, actually.’ And she’s not wrong!
Conan, who clearly had questions about this, then asks, ‘You wanted to get it out there that you two were a couple as a joke?’ Sophie’s reply? ‘Yeah, sometimes you just wanna make out with your best friend.’ Yes!!!
Honestly, forget about Joe, I’m team Mophie all the way! Watch the whole thing here:
