Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams are not a lesbian couple but apparently everyone on the sets of ‘Game of Thrones’ thought that they were. This is because the two were reportedly very close physically on the set.

Sophie Turner in a recent interview revealed that she has some behind-the-scenes secrets from ‘GoT’ that no one ever knew. During a press tour for her film ‘Dark Phoenix’, she spilt some GoT gossip -- that she and Maisie were so close to one another that everyone thought they were a couple. 

When asked how they reacted to such news on the set, she said, “Oh, we fully knew about it, we played into it...So on the set, we would do the scene and then we would try to, you know, just try to kiss each other in the middle of the scene and see if anyone would react."

She added, "And it’s Game of Thrones, so incest is so normal that they were just like, ‘That’s fine. It was probably the most tame thing that happened on the show, actually.” 
Sophie also added that she didn’t mind it with her best friend Maisie as, "sometimes you just wanna make out with your best friend.”

In another news, fans signed a petition after the last episode of the show aired -- asking for a remake as they were disappointed with the finale. While many stars rubbished it, Emilia Clarke who played the dragon queen said that she will be open to filming the last season again.
