Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams out on the town!

Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams are back in Northern Ireland and having a ball around town, it seems. The Stark sisters were spotted several times in Belfast today, shopping and taking photos with fans. They even visited a tattoo parlor together. There’s no word on if both actresses got ink today, but that does look like a bandage/wrap for a fresh tattoo on Maisie’s left arm. Hopefully that heals in time for the Emmys next Sunday!

Fans ran into the pair at the Victoria Square Shopping Centre in Belfast:

Absolute babes ? #gameofthrones #wannabestarksister

I’m wondering if Maisie grabbed the drink(s) before or after the tattoo.

They also passed by Belfast’s Harlem Cafe, which apparently has the worst salad ever, according to at least one previous diner.

Given Sophie’s still-blonde hair, it doesn’t appear that she’s started filming. She could be using a wig but switching after six seasons seems unlikely. And dyeing a person’s hair really doesn’t take long at all. They may still be taking care of pre-filming preparations if they haven’t started yet. Either way, it’s great to see Mophie back in action and taking on Belfast!

Update: It’s rumored that Sophie and Maisie have gotten matching tattoos that read a specific date, and Maisie has shared this photo, with the date, “??07.08.09??” What significance is the date? I suspect it’s the day the two women met, since their castings were announced in late August of 2009.

??07.08.09??

    1. Gah! Was hoping Sophie’s hair would be red already. A different #Hairwatch continues. I wonder if Maisie is filming anything yet.

    2. Dee Stark,

      Why wouldn’t she? (unless she was busy filming, I suppose)

      I recall some of the cast talking about matching tattoos before, so it seems the girls went through with it. I don’t recall seeing Maisie having any tattoos before, so this may be the first she’s gotten; I believe it’s Sophie’s third (not counting all those fake tattoos for Huntsville, heh).

    3. Sean C.,

      mmm they didn’t all go last year… but I guess they were smack dab in the middle of filming, vs now. I guess maybe they planned it that way also, so the whole cast can go!

    4. On Maisie’s instagram a few posts ago she has a long red wig on her – clearly a Sansa wig!

      Also anyone know where this bar in Belfast is? pleaseee

    5. Oooohhhhh Matching Tattoos? OMG that means one of them will not survive Season 7! jkjk lololol

    6. How lovely – commemorating a day that’s meaningful to each of them. Now, when Sansa and Arya are reunited on the show, (and they will be, they must be, Arya MUST go home at least for a little while) , it will have a particularly special edge to it, both in the story and in reality. Be safe girls, but have fun where you can find it, and if you can’t find it, then create some of your own. I smile just thinking about them running around together, at that age.

    7. I wonder if they got inspired by the LotR story in which the actors playing all 9 members of the Fellowship of the Ring got a number from 1 to 9 in Elvish tattooed on them.

    8. Sophie is wearing a sweatshirt that says Mx. Could that be a statement that she identifies as gender-fluid? Or is she just yanking fans’ chains again?

    9. Also, in the black-and-white photo, Maisie looks like she has a weird contraption growing out of the top of her head. Or she’s wearing a combination beaniecopter and reading lamp.

    10. Agreed–it is probably the date they met or heard they were hired or something like that. In most of the world, 07/08/2009 would be August 7th, not July 8th as it would be in the States. Since the show premiered in April 2011, it was probably filmed in 2010. Most likely hiring decisions were made in 2009. By the bye, if you haven’t seen the video with cast auditions, it’s well worth a look-in. Maisie and Sophie were young lasses. And you can see why Rory McCann got his role.

      What does “Mx.” mean?

    12. Thecatalyst77,
      It is the gender-neutral form of Ms., Miss, Mr. and Mrs. People who identify as gender fluid may prefer this honorific over its gender specific counterparts.
      However, I too have a t-shirt that reads “Mx.” and I am (and identify as) female. So I do not quite know what conclusion can be drawn from the sweatshirt. Possibly none 😉

    13. ACME,

      Mx is for those, mainly women, who dont particularly enjoy to be addressed by age and martial status while men just get a generic Mr. I can see why more young women are embracing this salutation.

      Ehrm…that’s exactly why my generation coined Ms., way back in the late ’60s/early ’70s. It’s the female equivalent of Mr., rendering the marital status revelation of Mrs. and Miss unnecessary.

      Mx. is something different. It’s more like saying, ‘My gender identification is none of your business!’
