Taking the front seat: Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams confirmed they will be taking part in Carpool Karaoke in a Twitter video posted on Sunday

They have played famous sisters Arya and Sansa Stark in HBO's hit series Game of Thrones since 2011.

But Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams are set to make a more light-hearted screen appearance together in the coming weeks, after confirming they will be taking part in Carpool Karaoke. 

The young actresses, who recently reunited for a Game of Thrones discussion panel in Texas, took to Twitter on Sunday to reveal they will be shooting behind the wheel for Apple Music.

Arriving at South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas, the pair took the opportunity to film a quick selfie video, to announce the news to fans. 

Sharing it to the social media site, Sophie, 21, and Maisie, 19, captioned the clip playfully: 'STARKpool Karaoke? Lane of Thrones?

They first admitted with a laugh that  they weren't allowed to go to their own wrap party after season one because they were too young to drink - so hosted their own bash in their local McDonald's instead. 

Sophie, who plays Sansa Stark in the hit series, stepped out in a chic monochrome ensemble for the event, pairing a striped polo neck jumper with a pair of high-waisted white jeans.

Wearing her blonde tresses swept to one side, the British actress, who is dating Joe Jonas, accentuated her natural beauty with lashings of mascara and a rose-tinted lipstick.

Also opting for a casual look, Maisie - who stars as Arya - teamed a simple white top with a pair of jeans, which she accessorised with a gold choker necklace.

The pair later changed into similarly stylish ensembles, with Maisie wearing a kooky checked pinafore dress and Sophie showing off her pins in a pair of red leather trousers. 

During the fun-filled discussion, the subject of the most expensive death scene in GoT was broached.

It was revealed that Meryn Trant’s death, which saw him stabbed in the eyes and have his throat slit by Arya Stark (Maisie), cost a small fortune.

'She couldn’t really poke out his eyes', co-creator David Benioff explained, when asked why it had cost so much.

He also confirmed that the eighth and final season of Game Of Thrones will only have six episodes. 

The seventh season, which airs this summer, has just seven episodes instead of the usual 10. 

The final season likely will air in 2018 and after that, Benioff acknowledged HBO might continue with a spinoff without himself and fellow co-creator Dan Weiss at the helm.

'I think HBO might well do [another series] and I look forward to watching it and I think it be great but I think they should get new blood in,' he said.
