5 Times the Cast of ‘Game of Thrones’ Were Besties in Real Life
They've battled alongside each other and cursed one another's houses. They've fought over sister-lovers and bonded over shared enemies. Suffice it to say, the stars of Game of Thrones have been through a lot together over the last seven seasons, on screen and off. From Sansa (Sophie Turner) and Arya Stark's (Maisie Williams) power couple moniker, “Mophie,” to Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenerys Targaryen's (Emilia Clarke) silly on-set selfies, here, five times the cast of Game of Thrones were BFFs in real life.
Kristofer Hivju & Rory McCann
They may be two of the show's burliest characters, but Tormund (Kristofer Hivju) and The Hound (Rory McCann) spend their off-screen hours serenading each other. True bromance comes only once in a lifetime.
Sophie Turner & Maisie Williams
The Stark sisters may have their differences, but blood is thicker than water. When they're not looking after Winterfell (or slicing people's faces off), Turner and Williams refer to themselves as “Mophie” (Maisie + Sophie), love to bust a move on Carpool Karaoke and sport matching tattoos.
Kit Harington & Emilia Clarke
The relationship between Jon and Dany started off rocky, but as the saying goes, good things come to those who wait. In between falling in love on-screen and conquering the Seven Kingdoms, Harington and Clarke goof off with silly selfies and flawless dragon impressions.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau & Pilou Asbæk
Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk) have a palpable distaste for each other on the show, but outside the walls of King's Landing, they're mates who bond over a shared love of football (soccer).
Kit Harington & Rose Leslie
The last words Ygritte (Rose Leslie) uttered to her on-screen love were, "You know nothing, Jon Snow (Kit Harington)," but the pair have shared plenty more words and kisses IRL. Their relationship didn't survive Beyond the Wall but the pair, who have reportedly been dating since 2012, are as happy as can be and just moved into Castle Black Harington together.
