Attending the Emmys last night in LA, Game of Thrones actresses Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner debuted their matching tattoos.
The pair are famous best friends after meeting on the set of the hit TV show. They have both openly spoken about how they have, and continue to, help each other through the craziness that comes with appearing on the show.
The actresses both have the date ‘07.08.09’ on their inner arm, beneath their elbow joint. Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, revealed on the red carpet that the date is the day that her and Maisie both heard that they got their roles in Game of Thrones.
Sophie then explained that they were planning on waiting until Game of Thrones had ended to get their tattoos. However, they were uncertain whether their characters would make it to the end of the eighth series together with the duo deciding ‘let’s get this before anyone kills us off.’
However there are differences between the best friends’ tattoos. Whilst the date on Maisie’s arm is written in standard black font, on Sophie’s arm it is a peach colour. The actress explained that this was because ‘my mum was like ‘make sure it doesn’t show up!”
Maisie hinted at her and Sophie’s tattoos on Instagram five days ago when she posted a picture of them with the caption ‘07.08.09.’
