  • After more than a year of hiatus, Game of Thrones returns Sunday night for its eighth and final season.
    • During an interview with PeopleTV, Sophie Turner reminisced about a scene from the hit show's first season that she remembers "overacting the hell out of."
      • The scene involved Maisie Williams' character, Arya Stark, throwing food at Sophie's character, Sansa.

        The Game of Thrones era is coming to an end this year and the cast have been looking back on their time on the show in the build-up to the final season. In an interview with PeopleTV, Sophie Turner reminisced about one particularly memorable scene from season one that she thinks she could have done better, as an actress.

        In the clip, Sophie sits alongside her Game of Thrones costar and real-life BFF, Maisie Williams, and discusses a scene from the show's earliest days that she remembers "overacting the hell out of."

        The scene in question takes place in Winterfell, when King Robert Baratheon is there visiting/forcing Arya and Sansa's father, Ned Stark, to move south to King's Landing to serve as the Hand of the King. The moment sets up a lot about Sansa and Arya's personalities and their relationship with each other. Sansa is being all prim and proper and Arya, being the mischievous, troublemaker that she is, flicks a spoonful of food at her sister.

        The "overacting" Sophie refers to comes with Sansa's reaction.

        "The pie-flicking thing," Sophie said of the scene. "The pigeon pie. Arya flicks pigeon pie at me and I remember overacting the hell out of that scene—and everyone laughing at me."
