Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams didn't just become famous on Game of Thrones. They also became best friends. And this friendship has become the muse for a possible project: a film where they bring their bond to the big screen.
In a Vogue Paris video, Sophie Turner had dinner with her Dark Phoenix co-star Jessica Chastain and shared that she would like to expand her film skills to include producing and directing one day. Turner said, as reported by Refinery29, "As an actor, you can only have so much creative control. I want to be able to have full creative control and create my own vision and that’s something I’m quite passionate about."
Turner also spoke about her friendship with Williams, saying:
“My best friend Maisie, who is on Game of Thrones with me, she plays Arya, she and I have a very intense friendship, a friendship that I haven’t had with any of my other girlfriends before. We felt like we wanted to write a movie about a friendship where it’s kind of like you’re soulmates, but you’re friends and it’s like this beautiful connection but it can also be quite destructive.”
Williams and Turner met on the Thrones set when they were 14 and 15 respectively, and grew up together on the show. They are such close friends that Williams will be one of Turner's maids of honor at her actual wedding to Joe Jonas later this year.
The complexity of their friendship is what has inspired Turner to capture on film. She also told Chastain that she hasn't begun to write the script, but she is planning on it. "I bought a screenplay writing book," she said. But the actress is still busy acting in the meantime, and her career shows no signs of slowing down. According to her IMDb page, Turner has two new movies coming up: Broken Soldier and Heavy.
