Maisie Williams is beyond excited to be Sophie Turner’s maid of honour

Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner

It’s official: Maisie Williams is going to be maid of honour at Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas’ wedding.

Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams have basically grown up together playing sisters Sansa and Arya Stark on HBO’s Game of Thrones. So it makes sense that Turner, who is engaged to Joe Jonas, has asked Williams to play a very important role at her wedding.

That’s right: a girl will wear the face of… maid of honour.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight at the New York City premiere of the eighth and final season of the HBO show, Williams revealed that she’s been busy trying to pick out a dress for the star-studded nuptials.

Upon hearing this news, Turner said: “I don’t know why she’s thinking about [what she’s wearing to my wedding]. I’m giving her the bridesmaid dress!”

The actress added: “She’s my maid of honour! One of two.”

Turner and William have always been firm believers in the #sistersbeforemisters mantra. And so, when previously asked to comment on Turner’s engagement, Williams told Radio Times, “I already got [bridesmaid]!”

She continued: “[The wedding] is very, very exciting. It’s kind of bizarre though.

“We’re waiting until this season [of Game of Thrones] is done until we get into any [wedding planning], but I think she’s already letting her little heart wander and imagine.”

Last year, we confirmed that Turner is engaged to her musician boyfriend Joe Jonas; the famously private couple announced their happy news with a pair of in-sync Instagram posts, and fans all over the world fell over themselves to offer their congratulations.

Williams, of course, took to social media to share her own sweet message to her co-star – and it was everything we expected from a dedicated best friend, to be honest.

Sharing the very same picture the engaged couple used to announce their news, Williams wrote: “Congratulations to my beautiful girlfriend on her engagement.

“This is just one of MANY life milestones we’ll share. Love you both #mophie #jophie #holymoly”

It’s not the first time that ‘Mophie’ has been used by the duo to describe themselves.

During an interview with Marie Claire, Turner said that she’d 100% prefer to be famed for her relationship with her best friend over her romance with Jonas.

“I prefer ‘Mophie,’” she explained. “What’s that thing they say? Relationships come and go but friendship is always there.”

All hail the power of female friendship.
