The Stark Sisters Say Goodbye to Game of Thrones: "Papa Stark Would Be Very Proud of Us"
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. Now, as the eighth and final season comes closer, we're faced with two very different young women fighting for the safety of their family and their home. Honestly, we're a little choked up just thinking about it.
So are the actresses who play the Stark sisters, Sophie Turner (Lady of Winterfell herself, Sansa Stark) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark, formerly No One). As Turner reveals in an interview with Rolling Stone, 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 favourite murderer and Turner's take on Sansa's rise to power.
