While loyalties are constantly changing in the tumultuous world of Game of Thrones, the offscreen friendship between stars Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner seems prepared to stand the test of time.

Even though they went nearly six full seasons without sharing a scene, the pair—who play sisters Arya and Sansa Stark—have remained close throughout the series’ lengthy run. During a 2013 Emmys panel, Williams revealed that she knew there was something special about Turner after their very first audition together.

“I had gotten along really really well with Sophie and I just remember her being super tall,” she said. “I came out of the audition and said to my mum, ‘Even if I don’t get the part, I really want that girl to. She’s really cool.”

Carpool Karaoke? They’re doing it as a pair, because their bond seems to have only grown stronger since those early Thrones days, with both often showing their love for each other in interviews and on social media.
