Fun fact: the actress who plays Sansa Stark, Sophie Turner, is only one year older than the actress who plays Arya, Maisie Williams. Second fun fact: both of them are becoming super hot.
Needless to say, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams have grown up a ton since the first season of Game Of Thrones. Turner, who is turning 21 in February, could easily pass for her mid-twenties these days. As for Williams, who turns 20 in April, while she doesn’t have the same classic beauty looks as Turner, is turning into quite the dime in her own right.
Third fun fact: the two of them seem like they are legit best friends in real life, which makes all of this that much better. Just two young, super hot, super rich, and famous actresses, working on the best show on the planet, with the world at their feet. Must be nice.

Her name, “Maisie”, comes from after a character from the comic strip The Perishers.Williams is the youngest of four children; her three older siblings are James, Beth and Ted.
