Arya and Sansa, Revisited

Here, as promised, are some larger pictures of Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, who will be portraying Arya and Sansa Stark, respectively, in the HBO pilot.

MAISIE WILLIAMS


Maisie, I am informed, has some previous acting credits. Stage work, I gather, nothing in television or film. Until now. Sorry, I have no further details.

SOPHIE TURNER


Sophie is brand new, David and Dan tell me. Well, maybe some school plays. She read for us at her school. Don't confuse her with the DR. WHO Sophie Turner, please, or any of the other Sophie Turners that Google will turn up. (She should probably tweak her name to make it more distinctive. Maybe Sophie R.R. Turner. Worked for me)

Aw they're both adorable. Maisie has the spunky, tomboy cute and Sophie is so pretty. Good choices. :D

Aww, they are both so adorable and look great for the parts. Maisie has such an impish look to her that fits perfectly for Arya, and Sophie a gentle beauty, perfect for Sansa (my favorite character! <3). I am looking forward to watching them in action. You go girls!

Sansa (my favorite character! <3)

Yay, there are two of us! Haha, I know there must be other people out there who love Sansa, but she certainly isn't very popular. It doesn't help that Arya is one of my least favorite major characters--talk about an unpopular opinion.

I am loving that Sansa! Can't wait to see how she looks with auburn hair.

Oh my goodness, what a great chance for a new actor! Sophie is so perfect! As is Maisie...can't wait!

Arya is so wonderful--both the character and the actor. I can't wait for this! Fall 2010, does anyone know?

They're so cute! I hope they have fun with this, and really can get into these great characters.

Wow, they both look the part! Maisie REALLY looks like Arya to me.

There have been some absolutely amazing casting choices here.

Maisie has the perfect look for Arya and Sophie looks like she'll fit the role of Sansa nicely.

All the child actors should include "R.R." in their stage names. That would be awesome.

Oooooh...Maisie looks JUST like I've pictured Arya, complete with the gap toothed grin!

Sophie looks so delicate. A good match, I think.

Both beautiful young ladies, and they could even pass for sisters!

Maisie has a perfect jaunty face that I'd expect Arya to have.
Sophie looks like a perfect Sansa too!
I CAN NOT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!
I got HBO just for this--so I hope it goes well!

I always imagined Sansa with brown heair, but this girl is lovely. And Maisie has that sparkle of character that Arya has :D

Is that really where the RR came from? I've always wondered...

Both girls are adorable, but Sophie especially looks like Sansa to me. :)

Beautiful, beautiful girls! I'm sure they'll be awesome. ♥

That has to be the most awesome icon EVER. Not to mention true. XD

Excellent
They both look spot on. I'm only becoming more and more encouraged in the pilot.

They are absolutely perfect, both of them. I am very pleased with the decision (even before this was an honest-to-God TV-project, me and friends had been kidding around, casting-wise...and the children always remained total blanks as none of us could come up with a comparison. With the children, you'd really have to look "outside of The Mint". And I'm really, really looking forward to this. Probably the most excited I've been since the very first LotR-movie...honestly!!!

The photo of Maisie Williams is particularly good -- definitely something a bit mischievous there, it'll suit Arya. Sophie Turner is quite pretty, and it'll be interesting to see her transformation into the auburn-haired young maiden of Winterfell.

Look-wise, at least, these two look perfect for the roles!

This will sound so superficial, but I hope they dye Sophie Turner's hair (or give her a wig). One of the things I really enjoy about Song of Ice and Fire is the diverse color palette: The golden Lannisters, the dark- or flame-haired Starks, silvery-maned Targaryens...

Okay, that sounded incredibly superficial and whatever, I'm excited regardless.

I agree--I hope they dye the hair and don't use wigs, unless they get the best wigmakers out there...Not the one who did Halle Berry's "Storm" wig. I would have to imagine that person didn't get much work after that!

That Arya is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. That grin is excellent, and she has the perfect blend of tomboy-ishness and femininity. If she can act (hey, you can't tell from a picture), she'll be fantastic.

Sophie looks the part of Sansa, but I was never a Sansa fan, so I'll keep me mouth shut. ::zips::

Can't wait to see this, hope it takes off!

While Maisie looks quite how I pictured Arya -and exhudes I am a tomboy!, I'll say that Sophie doesn't look at all like I imagined Sansa.
Though one of the key personality traits of Sansa is sweetness, and she seems to have that in spades!
