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)

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

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

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.

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!

Agreed that the looks of these two actors fit my own image of the characters quite well. Good casting!

They both look just great. I hope they know what they're in for, poor dears.

Care to share their ages?

Thanks for the new pics, George. They both look perfect! And you say their readings were great as well... This just gets better and better. :-D
