In exactly two months, “Game of Thrones” returns on HBO with its fourth season. It’s hard to believe that only four years ago, some of the biggest young stars on the hit TV series were relative no-names with no TV experience under their belts.

That was the case with Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner, both of whom took their first roles with “Game of Thrones.” Though they are now 16 and 17, respectively, the pair were barely pre-teens when they were cast. And gosh they were adorable.

In honor of Throwback Thursday, above is a look at Maisie and Sophie’s audition tapes for “Game of Thrones.” They were so little! That audition should have a special place in the hearts of fans, because it’s due to that meeting that the girls are now best friends.
