Joe Jonas wasn’t able to be Sophie Turner’s date to the Emmys tonight because of the Happiness Begins concert he and the Jonas Brothers are currently playing in Kansas City. No matter: Turner posed on the carpet solo, and the photos are incredible. She wore a light pink gown by Louis Vuitton and diamond necklace:
She will be joined by her co-star and best friend Maisie Williams later tonight. The two girls are both Emmy nominees, competing in the outstanding supporting actress in a drama series category.
Turner and Williams’ performances as Sansa and Arya Stark earned them their Emmy nod. It’s a big night generally for the series: Game of Thrones has a best drama series nomination, and their other cast members, including Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey, and Gwendoline Christie, have their own individual Emmy noms.
Turner and Williams spoke to Glamour UK back in March about how their off-screen friendship has made a huge difference on their mental health as they’ve grown up in the spotlight and acted alongside each other.
“I can’t tell you the amount of times Sophie said, ‘Go to therapy,’ before I actually did,” Williams said. “She really helped me through some messy break-ups and some friend break-ups. Whenever I’m like, ‘I need help! This is bigger than anything I can sort out on my own,’ Sophie is my point of call. I think therapy is so important. You should absolutely speak to someone, even if in your head you go, ‘Yeah, I knew that!’”
Turner said Williams has made that difference in her life, too. “We’ve helped each other through a lot of mental-health problems, especially around body image,” Turner said. “She’s been my crutch in that, and I’ve been hers because it seems everything she goes through, I go through. You know when girls are together a long time, their periods sync up? It’s like our emotions and personalities sync up, too.”
