Arya and Sansa, Revisited

Spain
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)

I'm rereading storm of swords right now and the cast has completely reworked it's look in my head to that of the cast of the show now.

Awww...

They look great! Heres to hoping they're really talented as well, witch i kinda assume they are.

How old are they, though?

Boy, I think Sophie Turner is going to be absolutely fabulous for Sansa.

Its almost sad to picture them as Arya and Sansa, knowing what we'll be getting to see them put through. I think they'll have better acting chops by the end of it than the kids who spent a decade acting on Harry Potter, at least.

Maisie couldn't be a better Arya. I can see her now.

Well, I recall Arya being called 'horsey face' (and the Starks generally being marked by long faces) or some such thing that Maisie will never have to deal with; but I'm pleased that these two pictures certainly make them look like siblings.
Sure seems like a fabulous cast so far!

They look spot on!

I just hope they don't grow up too fast. :) HP was able to space the movies enough so the actors weren't too much older than their characters by the last few movies. Hopefully HBO will get season 1 into production ASAP.

HBO
A bit off topic but does HBO even realize how many people will be subscribing to their channel if they make this series? I know I'll be forking over the $15/month(or whatever it is) just to watch it. Not to mention the killing they'll make in DVD sales after each season.

Re: HBO

I think Maisie looks perfect for Arya. Sophia just does not look like how I pictured Sansa, she is too blonde and while pretty, not beautiful as I imagine Sansa looks.

Uncanny
They are pretty much how I pictured them when reading the books. Your casting crew must be really really good

Respectful
i would like to be respectful and polite when mentioning this so it does make it through into your blog.

This television series seems to be getting a lot of you attention george. It seems to be #1 priority. I am just posting to share my worry that the Books will be left behind and not a major priority anymore if this TV series is Popular. All i would like is some reassurance that the books are going to continue and not be replace by the tv series.

Thank you.

Maisie looks like Natalya Guseva from Russian cult tv series "Guest from the Future")

As different as night and day, and totally adorable. I don't know if it's just the pic or just me, but Ms. Turner seems to have a bit of a Goldie Hawn thing going on there.

Perfect
Maisie Williams looks PERFECT! Perfect. Cute -- great grin -- plainly could easily beat up her snooty sister.

Love it!

So far the cast looks great, although...
I am very eager to find out who will be playing Petyr, Pycelle, Varys, and my boy Sandor. Any hints? :)

Adorable! I wonder if they will dye Sophie's hair? Very pretty blue eyes.

They're both so adorable! Exactly how I imagined the characters.

Wowza
I have to say, I don't think Mr. Martin or the boys and girls at HBO could have done a better job. I really don't. I've really felt good about each of the castings to this point (Mark Addy was a bit of a surprise as King Robert, though) but these two really just cement it. I mean, Ms. Turner is almost exactly what I see when I picture Sansa. That's uncanny.

They look fantastic. I have great faith in their abilities. I am so excited. I tried to stay away for a week, I couldn't do it. I'm addicted. You have me so hooked!!!

Maisie is Perfect, right down to the I'm-too-cute-to-get-in-trouble grin.
