#TBT: See ‘Game Of Thrones’ Sansa And Arya’s Audition Tapes

Lemon cakes. Always, the lemon cakes.

Your daily dose of nostalgia today, via Vanity Fair: a peek at a “Game of Thrones” scene from way back in Season 1, featuring Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner before they were Arya and Sansa Stark.

The scene they’re playing is one of the ones that author George R. R. Martin revealed he would have liked to see kept in the show, if not for the need to cap episodes under the 60-minute mark: a conversation between Sansa and Arya about the relative merits of hunting for rubies with the butcher’s boy, versus taking tea and cake with Queen Cersei.

The best part: since these are audition tapes rather than footage from the show itself, it looks like the sisters Stark are having this argument with each other via Skype.
