Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams Playfully Kept the Rest of the Game of Thrones Cast on Their Toes As Only They Could

Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams may play sisters Sansa and Arya Stark on Game of Thrones, but that apparently didn’t stop them from pranking their castmates by kissing on set.

In an interview with Glamour UK that was published on Thursday, Turner revealed that the co-stars turned BFFs got in the habit of trying to sneak a kiss into every scene they did together while filming the show.

“People always think Maisie and I are a couple. I mean, I am obsessed with her, so you never know… I’ve got an addiction to Maisie Williams. I actually stalk her hashtag on Instagram!” she explained. “Even though we are sisters [in Game of Thrones], we tried to sneak a kiss into every scene we did together to freak everyone out a bit. It kept them on their toes making sure they were following the script.”

Turner also gushed over how close she and Maisie have grown during the series’ lengthy run. “Maisie is definitely my protector and I’m hers, too. I know if anything happened — especially if it was on Game Of Thrones, which it never, ever would — she’d go crazy and protect me,” she said. “Maisie is my strong home.”

“Let Him Rest” Jermaine Jackson Speaks Out Against Leaving Neverland Documentary

Earlier this month, we reported that there was a Michael Jackson documentary that would seek to expose the alleged child victims of his sexual assault during Jackson’s infamous slumber parties.

Since then, the documentary was screened at the Sundance Festival. The reviews have trickled in and from what I’ve seen people have been traumatized. So much so that one Twitter user said there were counselors outside of the theater to speak to audience members who were effected by the things they saw in the documentary.

The documentary features testimony from two men Wade Robson and James Safechuck over the course of four hours.

And as you might assume, the Jackson family hasn’t been too pleased about the documentary’s release. In a recent interview, Jermaine Jackson, Michael’s older brother and former bandmate, shared his thoughts on the project, likening it to a public lynching.

“Wade [Robson] changed his story that he maintained before and after Michael’s death. He tried to shop a book deal, no publisher would touch it. He even sued the estate for 1.5 billion, it was tossed out of court. He wanted to go out for the head choreography part for Cirque du Soleil. He was turned down from that. What was left for him to do was to do a documentary and spew out these nonsense statements.

Those were slumber parties. And what they didn’t tell you was there were little girls there, even with their parents, their uncles and they were sitting down watching movies.

We lost Michael. We lost a father. We’re still mourning. We lost a lot. Just leave us alone. Leave him alone. Let him rest please. Let him rest. He deserves to rest.”

Later, Jackson tweeted this.

In response to Jackson, Dan Reed, the director of Leaving Neverland, said he totally understands why the Jackson family would want this project to go away.

“They have a very precious asset to protect. Every time a song plays, a cash register goes ‘ka-ching.’ It doesn’t surprise me that they’ve come out fighting in defense of their asset.”

Rest in Power: Feminist Filmmaker Audrey Wells Brought Women’s Lives to the Big Screen

Last week, after a courageous and years-long battle with cancer, feminist filmmaker and activist Audrey Wells passed away at 58 years old.

Wells was a screenwriter for The Hate U Give, in theaters now. The film, an adaptation of an Angie Thomas novel, is about a young black woman who is called to action after she watches police officers unjustly kill her best friend. Discussing such serious issues through her work was no new task for Wells, who always focused on representing characters multi-dimensionally and writing strong female leads. (Wells was perhaps best known for writing and directing the 2003 film Under the Tuscan Sun, which followed a woman intent on rebuilding her own life as she traveled to Italy for solace.)

Wells began her life as Audrey Ann Lederer. Born in San Francisco, California, in 1960, she grew up in a loving home with her parents who sparked her imagination and passion for learning. She received an undergraduate degree at the University of California, Berkley, and held jobs in radio before pursuing film; she ultimately obtained a graduate degree from the University of California, Los Angeles.

Creative, innovative, unique and progressive are some of the words that were often used to describe her films and Wells herself—but words alone cannot do justice to her work or her passion for social justice. Wells was an outspoken feminist intent on changing culture through her art, and a vocal supporter of feminist organizations. She was known in her field for leveraging a feminist lens in her work and using media to stand up for what she believed in.

Wells is survived by many family members, including her husband and daughter. Instead of flowers and cards, her family has asked that anyone grieving the loss of her life send donations to organizations including the Feminist Majority Foundation, which publishes Ms.

Miranda Martin is a feminist writer and activist and an editorial intern at Ms. She has written for a variety of publications and been published by The Unedit and Project Consent. Miranda recently graduated from University of Wisconsin La Crosse with a major in Interpersonal Communications and a double minor in Creative Writing and Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies. She loves to travel, read, exercise and daydream about the fall of the patriarchy.
