Sansa and Arya Stark may have shared a rocky relationship over the years, but Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams’ are widely known to be tight BFFs off-screen. The pair were visibly thrilled to see each other on the red carpet at tonight’s Game of Thrones premiere, and you’re gonna want to see the adorable evidence.

Following that epic hug Sophie and Maisie posed for several photos together, and with all due respect to Sophie and Joe Jonas, they were the cutest couple on the carpet. Also in attendance at the premiere were Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, Emilia Clarke, Natalie Dormer, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gwendoline Christie, and honestly just about any GoT fave you can name (with the sad exception of Lena Headey, who was too sick to attend).
After several seasons of feuding and alienation, the Stark sisters finally joined forces in season seven to kill Littlefinger, and proved to be exactly as formidable a duo as we all knew they’d be. Williams has promised that season eight will feature even more of the sisters as a team. “This season you see Arya teaming with Sansa and sometimes calling out Jon,” she told EW. “It felt nice and powerful to stand next to Sophie. Sophie and I are the tightest of friends when sitting across from anyone, so no acting required.”
Game of Thrones season 8 premieres on HBO next Sunday, April 14. You can catch up on all the up-to-date news and spoilers on the new season over here.
