Game of Thrones: Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams going to SXSW
Two Game of Thrones stars are heading to Austin, Texas next month.
Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams will attend this year’s South by Southwest Festival for a Game of Thrones-themed panel.
Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss were previously announced as featured speakers at the conference. Now EW has learned that Turner (Sansa Stark) and Williams (Arya Stark) are joining their panel for a conversation with the two Emmy-winning writer-producers.
This is Benioff, Weiss, and Turner’s first time at the conference — though Williams was at the event in 2014 (perhaps she can show them the best BBQ spots).
Thrones has nearly finished shooting its seventh season, which is set to debut sometime this summer. So far, there are no official photos or trailers for the seven new episodes which will represent the hit drama’s penultimate season. While some have speculated the event might debut the eagerly anticipated trailer, we’re hearing the festival will still be a bit too early for that.
The GoT SXSW panel is on Sunday, March 12 at 3:30 p.m. local time.
