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, 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 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)

So awesome that you guys are bringing up new talent and giving them a chance!

the castings so far have been great.
my favo's are theon and arya. just exactly how I pictured them!

maybe a weird or noobish question, but as a euro -belgium- will I be able to watch this serie eventually too? :p

even on the internet you can get refused cause of where you live.(like the heroes episodes or the series of the sword of truth books). I'd be quite buggered if I couldn't watch it or if had to start doing stuff I shouldn't be doing :p

As a European fellow (from Italy), I think the only way for us to watch GoT could be if the seiries will be bought by any pay-tv or we have to wait for dvd sales.

Oh, Maisie looks very Arja-ish! Sophie is adorable and auburn hair should really work with those eyes.

they look like excellent choices! delighted to see the cast growing, still excited abotu Jennifer Ehle as well.

Oh, such pretty ones! great choice :)
Aug. 25th, 2009 10:24 am (UTC)
Such beautiful girls!

Sophie looks gorgeous already, I can't wait to see her with auburnred hair. She'll make a stunning Sansa.
Maisie looks mischievous already, her looks give away her tomboy attitude.

Very good
Love the girls. How wonderful, wonderful wonderful!

I hope there will be some more sexy hunks in the show (Khal Drogo for example), not for my own pleasure (that too), but to get some of the non-(yet)-fans into the boat.
As shallow as it may seems the "OMG he's SOOOO hot" factor should not be neglected...
You'll get the guys with the story and the violence but you'll get the women with sixpacks and longing stares and stuff.
NCW is not enough!
(I'm thinking along the lines of McSteamy and McDreamy...)

Yours truly,
the unconsulted marketing expert. :D

Re: Very good
Although you're probably right ... do you think the series really needs new fans with all of us obsessing over it a year or so before it hits the screen? :D
Aug. 25th, 2009 11:55 am (UTC)
Wow - I think they're prefect! Just how I had imagined them. Well done.

Arya and Sansa, Revisited
Arya looks just like I pictured her! Now if they'll only show a picture of her biting her lip... :) I can't wait to see her do some needlework.

Arya is positively awesome!
Aug. 25th, 2009 02:11 pm (UTC)
They certainly look like sisters don't they?

I've just got back from the country and found out all those great news about new actors all at once. So I haven't had to painfully wait near my PC while all the secrets become revealed. Mwa-ha-ha.

Also they finally published "A feast of crows" in my favourite "Golden series of Fantasy" edition here in Russia so I'm currently revisiting "The song of ice and fire" first three books before I move on to Feast. So I'm kind of in the world of "the song".

And I have to say - so far ALL the choices of actors look super! I'm specially excited about Tamzin Merchant as Dany - she's a terrific actress and Sean Bean as Ned - I got *really* impressed by him after his role as Odysseus in "Troy".

So I wish all HBO team good luck and I'll have to keep my fingers crossed all the way!

Ohh Maisie Williams as Arya is perfect!

Good choices. Maise does have that tomboy quality of Arya and Sophie has the girly girl quality of Sansa. But both girls have the intelligence in the eyes that I imagine in the books they would have inherited from Catelyn.
And I just realized something: J.R.R. Tolkien-George R R Martin. Coincidence?
