Before they actually got involved in the intimidating irrationality that revolves around Game of Thrones, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner and Rory McCann had to audition for their respective roles Arya Stark, Sansa Stark and The Hound. Casting directors, Nina Gold and Robert Sterne had to test the ability of these aspiring stars to act, whether they are ready to reprise their characters on the hit HBO series.
Before King Joffrey could abuse Sansa Stark, a petite Sophie Turner auditioned for the role. She came with a slightly messy head and strawberry blonde hair. With her is the adorable Maisie Williams delivering her lines to land her future role as Arya Stark. Though at very young ages, the Stark sisters proved that they can also impress the casting directors.
