Sophie Turner Shows Everyone Her Game of Thrones Tattoo on the Emmys Red Carpet

"Maisie and I were like let’s get these ones before anyone kills us,” Turner joked


That’s the tattoo Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner showed the world on the red carpet at Sunday’s 68th Emmy Awards, reports Entertainment Weekly.

It refers to the date when the actress found out she was going to be part of the hit HBO series alongside friend Maisie Williams, who has the same tattoo.

When asked what prompted them to get their tattoos now, Turner joked about the show’s trend of killing off its main characters. “We don’t know if we’re going to make it, so Maisie and I were like let’s get these ones before anyone kills us.”

The actress, who plays Sansa Stark, said that the script for the show’s seventh season left her “speechless.”
