Sophie Turner and Jonathan Van Ness meeting

Game of Thrones Sophie Turner and Queer Eye star Jonathan Van Ness were equally as excited to meet for the first time – and the result was everything we dreamed for and more.      

There’s something so strangely exciting about watching two of your favourite celebrities obsess over one another. It’s kind of comforting, because watching someone you admire lose their cool and behave in such a relatable way is a treat which only comes around every once in a while.

So when we saw the incredible video of Sophie Turner and Jonathan Van Ness meeting for the first time behind the scenes at this week’s VMA’s, we knew we had to share it with you.

To cut straight to the point, the meeting was iconic. As if we didn’t already love Turner and Van Ness enough on their own, putting the two together was just on a whole other level.

Captured by Entertainment Tonight, the video shows the two stars in awe as they catch sight of one other, with the Queer Eye star screaming and putting his hand to his mouth in shock (it goes without saying, but Van Ness is a massive Game of Thrones fan - he even had his own GOT analysis show, Gay of Thrones). 

“I love you so much,” the Queer Eye star exclaims, after giving Turner a big hug.

“So happy for your ending. Oh my god, I was so relieved, I was so happy” he adds, in reference to Turner’s character Sansa Stark’s storyline in the Game of Thrones finale. 

Adorned in an iconic cape and redefining the little black dress, Van Ness took the VMA’s red carpet by storm – and the meeting with Turner seemed to be the icing on the top of the cake.

After the initial screams and introductions, Van Ness went in for a second hug with Turner, adding: “I love you! I’m obsessed. Congratulations on your gorgeous summer. I think you’re incredible,” in reference to Turner’s wedding to Joe Jonas.

In some miraculously perfect timing, Jonas then appears – and of course, Turner was pretty excited to introduce him to her new friend. “You have to meet Joe! You haven’t met Joe yet,” she says.

It’s pure, unadulterated joy – and you can catch us watching the clip over and over again all day long.
