Game of Thrones may have lasted eight years and cost millions and millions of dollars and employed thousands of people, but its best lasting legacy might just be the friendships it created along the way. 

Specifically, we're talking about Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, who took their sisterly bond as Arya and Sansa Stark off screen to become BFFS IRL. 

"It was like one big elaborate thing to find me a best friend. This whole show!" Williams joked at the season eight premiere. "I'm kidding. It's been incredible. To have a friend like that on something as wild as this is just like a godsend, really." 

That makes getting through their usually very serious scenes together a whole lot harder. 

"I watch back those scenes, and I can just see it in my eyes. You know like when someone's got little tears because they're gonna laugh? That's kind of how I felt the whole time," she says. "I was corpsing a lot during our scenes together." 

In the video above, Williams also offers her thoughts on whether she's intimidating in real life and whether she'd be more scared of a zombie Ned Stark or a zombie direwolf, and below, you can see Williams' and Turner's friendship through the years!
