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)

Really? Why Sansa? I keep thinking I must be missing something important about her, because so far I've only seen her as a pawn that lets herself get pushed around. Is it just that guileless innocence and sweetness, or is there something going on there that I haven't picked up on?

Arya is one of my favorite characters, but I wouldn't say I "like" her as much as I think she's really interesting. She's... not particularly likable, IMO.

I wonder how assertive and cunning you were when you were 12-14. :D

Well I think Sansa is the character I connect to the most. She reminds me of myself as a child... less prissy.. but very girly and idealistic. That and I find her a breathe of fresh air. With all the rampant manipulation and corruption, Sansa is a source of light with her innocence and naivete. I can understand why people don't like her, but it all comes down to preferences I suppose.
