Even for people who don’t care about the personal lives of celebrities, it can be hard to deny the thrill of finding out that two people who are friends on a TV show are also friends in real life. It’s why our hearts skip a beat whenever Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny indulge in some real-life fan service or why the wedding of Game Of Thrones’ Kit Harington and Rose Leslie is the first time anyone has actually wanted to attend a stranger’s nuptials, and now another Game Of Thrones wedding has actually brought us a new “wow, they’re friends like on the show” moment. Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark on the Game Of Thrones, is engaged to singer Joe Jonas, and her TV sister Maisie Williams—who plays Arya Stark—recently revealed to The Radio Times that she’s going to be a bridesmaid at Turner’s wedding.

It has already been established that the two get along better in real life than many actual siblings, but it’s still nice to know that they aren’t simply going to wash their hands of each other when Game Of Thrones is done like those fake friends on Mythbusters. On a similar note, Williams also teased that she hopes she’ll get to work with Turner again now that the two of them are involved in the X-Men movie universe, so at least we can count on the Stark girls to stick together now.
