Fans of Game of Thrones are likely well aware of the close friendship between co-stars Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams. And even though Thrones has come to an end, Turner and Williams's bond is seemingly still going strong.

Discussing forging a close bond with her fellow actress, Turner revealed to The New York Times, "To go home at the end of the day, if I felt really fat that day or if I felt like my face looked weird or I had huge zits, to be able to go home to the hotel room and sit there and cry with Maisie-it was the best thing for us."

She continued, "I’m glad I wasn’t crying on my own."

The New York Times also discussed Turner's struggle with body image, as a young woman thrust into the spotlight in such a popular TV show: "But she struggled with bouts of anxiety and depression, which she’s learned to manage through therapy. She also took comfort in Sansa-even as the poor girl was being put through an ever more baroque series of horrors, Turner often found it a more comfortable space to occupy than her own skin."

As for life after Sansa Stark, Turner explained, "It feels like Game of Thrones was secondary school; now X-Men is university." And while the actress is (sort of) joking, it's clear that Turner's career trajectory is on an upward bound.
