If anyone loves the Stark sisters onscreen, people are going to love them even more off-screen. Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner are practically like sisters in real life. See them in press candids or on social media and anyone can see that these two have a real spark. While romantic relationships seem to be the main goals these days, we mustn’t forget that friendship goals are also important. If anyone has a close friend themselves they will know exactly what I’m talking about. So, to show people some proof of just how close the GoT Stark sisters really are, here are 15 photos of Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner that will make anyone with a heart go ‘’Aww.’’ Seriously, these are some super cute snaps here. Raise your glasses for #Mophie!

15 Devoted Sister

They might play the troubled Stark sisters on GoT, but there’s absolutely nothing troubled about this duo in real life. There’s a real bond between these two and you can see it pretty much every single snap they’re pictured together in. Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner have a strong friendship and the kind of friendship we all secretly crave for. As great as romantic relationships are, there’s also no better feeling than having a really close friend who feels like your second half. Clearly, these two Game of Thrones stars feel the same way. They look adorable in every picture and it’s hard not to go ‘’Aww’’ when you see them. You can’t fake that. These two look like real life sisters and their friendship is going nowhere anytime soon.

14 They Can’t Stay Away From Each Other

Du u really wanna go there tho 😇

A post shared by Sophie Turner (@sophiet) on

Game of Thrones might be a tumultuous world but the friendship between Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner looks like it is guaranteed to stand the test of time. Just look at them! They are so cute! They literally cannot stay away from each other. Surprisingly, they haven’t even filmed a scene together since season 1 yet somehow, they’ve managed to stay close friends. Williams once said that she knew the two of them had something special from the very first audition they shared together. Awww! If that doesn’t get you ‘’aww’’-ing I don’t know what will. It sounds like you could do with joining Dorothy on the yellow brick road to find the wizard. He can give you a heart. But maybe the next picture might pull a little more at your heartstrings.

Could they get any cuter? This picture is seriously adorable, there’s no doubt about. And there’s certainly no questioning their friendship. These two have something special. You can see it in every picture, can’t you? What’s so incredible about this pair is that they are happy to show their public display of affection with one another and they don’t give a damn. They love each other and they’re proud of it. They don’t need to hide away or pretend like they’re not close friends. You’ve got to admire how open they are. In fact, it makes people want to see more close friendships like what these two have. Tabloids are always telling us what celebrity lovebirds are up to...what about celebrity besties like Williams and Turner?

12 They Never Stop Having Fun

Favourite photo of us, ever @sophiet I'm in love with you.

A post shared by Maisie Williams (@maisie_williams) on

This snap is actually Maisie Williams’ favorite picture of the two of them together and it’s hard not to agree with her. It is indeed a cute pic! Like a romantic relationship, one of the most important aspects of a friendship is fun. Being able to have fun together and share lots of laughter is so essential. Clearly it’s not an element that’s missing in their friendship. As you can see in the picture, it’s not difficult for these two to have a fun time. There’s never a dull moment in their friendship. The thing is, life is hard. So if you have the opportunity to have fun, take it. Or even better, create your own opportunities to have fun. Opportunities are literally everywhere – make them happen with your friends too!

11 Always There For Each Other

itty, bitty titty committee

A post shared by Maisie Williams (@maisie_williams) on

It’s an ‘’itty, bitty titty committee,’’ according to Maisie Williams, who is being touched up by Sophie Turner in this Instagram picture. But she doesn’t seem to mind. That’s what friends are there for I guess. They are always there for each other in a wide range of bizarre situations like the one displayed above. Who knows what the hell Turner is trying to achieve by fondling her BFF’s breasts but the two of them seem to find it hilarious nonetheless. That’s what really makes this duo so awesome. They are both so down to earth and hilarious; you kind of want them as your BFFs too. They’d really make your life so much brighter and more fun. Disclaimer: be prepared for some intimate touching.

10 Cute!

If you have a best friend, you have really got to master the whole selfie skill. That’s because you will be taking piles and piles of pics together. Just look at Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner. There are numerous snaps of these two together. Okay, not all of them are selfies but many of them are. Look above and you will see that this is clearly a selfie. And they look super cute together. If you’re not going ‘’Aww’’ right now, you don’t have a heart. Obviously. Taking pictures together helps to preserve your memories together. It would be such a shame to miss out on snapping some cute pictures together. Fortunately you will find countless images of these GoT stars together.

9 #FriendshipGoals

#RelationshipGoals always seems to get the bulk of attention on social media but we mustn’t neglect #FriendshipGoals. They are also important you know! Relationships are amazing, of course. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have wonderful friendships too. Mophie prove that you can. In fact, thanks to their strong bond, they’ve really given #FriendshipGoals a kick up the back side – it’s been put off for way too long. Why don’t you join in on using the hashtag too? Start posting snaps of you and your BFF on social media. Give people something to aspire to. Sadly, many people underestimate the power of female friendship but they shouldn’t. Friendship is a powerful thing. It can be equally as life changing as a romantic relationship. Not always. But sometimes.

8 If There Aren’t Wild Moments, It isn’t Friendship

They’ve had their cutesy moments but we also mustn’t miss out on seeing their wilder moments. You can see in the Instagram post above that these two know how to have a good time. They certainly have that in common. Do you know what’s even wilder? Sophie knew she wanted Maisie as her BFF pretty much from the moment they first met. "I had gotten along really really well with Sophie and I just remember her being super tall," she said. "I came out of the audition and said to my mum, 'Even if I don't get the part, I really want that girl to. She's really cool." When there’s a spark, there’s a spark. You can’t fight it. All you can do is nurture it.

7 Matching Halloween Costumes

Nortiness ensues

A post shared by Sophie Turner (@sophiet) on

When you spend a lot of time with someone, it’s funny how you both end up naturally doing the same things or, in the case of Mophie, wearing the same things. They do look really adorable in their Halloween costumes, though. The weirdest thing, according to Maisie, was when they shot their first scene together. "It was the weirdest thing when we shot our first scene together. We were both embarrassed to do our thing in front of each other. It took a few hours for us to get serious and actually do it...it was so hard to get into character with Sophie in front of me,’’ she told Elle. But I bet most of you are glad they did get it through it. They’ve made GoT awesome!

6 Friendship is Laughter

These two laugh together all the time and obviously it keeps their spark alive. There’s no better thing to see that two friends laughing hysterically together. It’s a breath of fresh air, it really is. And they have nothing but good words to say about each other. There’s no backstabbing in their friendship, that’s for sure. ‘’It was so wonderful to have someone my age plucked out from normality into this world,’’ Maisie said when asked about their friendship.’’ It’s really lovely to have someone to hold my hand through this. She’s like my big sister.’’ Awww! How sweet! It’s an industry where you really need to hold on to your friends and to the people you trust. Isn’t it awesome to see these off-screen best friends talking about each other so fondly?

5 Gangstas

Mr and Missbehaving #mophie

A post shared by Sophie Turner (@sophiet) on

Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner are total gangstas. These guys know how to have fun and they also know how to get wild. Just in case you need some evidence, you should know that the duo have matching tattoos. It doesn’t get much wilder – or more serious – than that! ‘’We always said that we wanted them (tattoos) so we got the date 07.08.09 on our arms because that's the date that both of us found out we'd got our roles in Game Of Thrones,’’ Sophie told Elle UK. ‘’So when we had a day off from filming in Belfast we just went to a tattoo place and got it done.’’ That just goes to show how committed they are to each other. Most people wouldn’t even do that for their husbands.

4 Epic Hangouts

Looking for a repeat of this night on Friday. @sophiet

A post shared by Maisie Williams (@maisie_williams) on

When you are in the public eye, there can be a lot of inauthentic behavior and deceit. It’s not always easy to find friends you can trust and depend on. That’s why Maisie and Sophie know they have something special. They never take what they have for granted. ‘’To have someone who understands what you’re going through, who’s the same age, who came from pretty much the same background—that is so rare,’’ said Sophie. ‘’And we’ve had the same struggles in terms of dealing with body image and puberty and growing up in the public eye. But I found my strength in her, and I think she found her strength in me.” Now those are some deep words! It sounds like we could all do with a Maisie or a Sophie in our lives.

3 Carpool Karaoke

Did you see the recent episode of Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner on Carpool Karaoke? It was awesome. Honestly, you’ve got to watch it. And if you are obsessed with Carpool Karaoke as much as you are with Game of Thrones, you are going to love it for sure. The pair were really hilarious on the episode and did a great job! Taking themselves seriously just isn’t something these girls do. They are pretty relaxed and down to earth and that is what people love about them. You’ve got to admit, they wouldn’t be half as intriguing and lovable if they were totally up themselves. You know I’m right. Friendship is all about trust, love and having fun together. These two tick all the boxes.

2 Sister Sister!

So in love

A post shared by Maisie Williams (@maisie_williams) on

Although this Game of Thrones duo may not be sisters in real life, there’s no questioning the fact that their friendship could be comparable to that of siblings. Actually that’s not quite correct seeing as many siblings don’t even get on. But you get the point. Off screen, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner get on like a house on fire. They have a friendship that can surely stand the test of time and each of these pictures proves it. Have you ever or do you still have a friendship that was/is incredibly powerful? The kind of friendship that feels so awesome. The kind of friendship you never want to see end. Not everyone is lucky enough to have such a friendship so treasure it if you have it people!

1 Friends Forever

🎈#mophie

A post shared by Maisie Williams (@maisie_williams) on

On Game of Thrones, Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner play the disturbed Stark sisters. Off screen, they are even more like siblings. Despite the fact that they aren’t blood related, the two have something even stronger than blood that bonds them together: friendship. These two have supported and continue to support each other throughout their careers and throughout their lives. It’s sad how few friendships we see on social media. Sure, there are some, of course, but you often get the feeling that they’re not as genuine as they make out. With Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, there is no denying the fact that this pair are the real thing. In a nutshell, make this Game of Thrones do your future #FriendshipGoals. They have something to aspire to.
