Game of Thrones Star Sophie Turner Reveals What She Stole from the Set
It's practically a rite of passage for actors to steal their favorite props and costumes from their big-budget productions. David Tennant kept the Tenth Doctor's sonic screwdriver from Doctor Who, while Robert Downey Jr. somehow made off with a 30-foot "A" from The Avengers and Emma Watson laid claim to pretty much half of the props department from each Harry Potter movie.
And now, Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner is adding her name to the list of Hollywood thieves by revealing at a New York Comic Con panel that not only did she walk off the set of the final season with her favorite corset, but that her costars Kit Harington and Maisie Williams went ahead and claimed ownership of their respective swords.
Turner's decision to rat out her costars is just like something Sansa Stark would do in order to divert attention to others, even when she's confessing to her own crimes. To be fair, Harington has already discussed how he has wanted to keep his sword, Longclaw, since day one. "There's only one that I've ever wanted: I want my sword," he said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
"The first season they were like, 'Yeah, yeah, yeah of course,' and as the seasons went on and the show became more and more popular and that sword's value went up, they became slowly quieter about it," Harington added. He has yet to confirm if he took matters into his own hands, but it seems as if Turner has now brought his burglary to light.
For her part, Williams was much more secretive about the whole affair. While she has kept mum on the whereabouts of her sword, Needle, she'd kept attention off her by previously unveiling to the BBC that she had stolen Arya's brown leather jacket.
"I can imagine it being something that I'm like, 'Oh, I was on this show once upon a time and this was the jacket I wore," she joked in the interview. "And my grandkids being like, 'Please stop.'"
It's unlikely that Williams or Harington will be bringing their blades to any red carpet events anytime soon, so the last time you'll prbably be able to see Longclaw and Needle (and Sansa's corset for that matter) will be in the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, set to air sometime in the first half of 2019.
