Parents: Sophie and Joe welcomed a baby girl named Willa

HER final scenes in Games Of Thrones was as Queen of the North and now actress Sophie Turner has a new princess in her life - a baby daughter.

The 24-year-old English star, who played Sansa Stark, revealed she is 'delighted' after welcoming her first child with 30-year-old musician husband Joe Jonas.

The couple reportedly have a baby girl that they have named Willa.

Since news of the baby's arrival was shared, dedicated Game Of Thrones fans pointed out that the name Willa has a connection to the hit fantasy show.

Two minor characters appeared on the ratings juggernaut bearing the name, including one who appeared in two episodes of season five as a wildling.

A different character called Willow was seen during season eight, gracing the screen as a servant in Winterfell.

Sophie previously admitted she is 'loving' being in lockdown at home with American Joe, but the 30-year-old musician feels like he's in 'prison.'

Sophie and Joe first began dating in 2016, with the couple going Instagram official in January 2017, when Sophie shared a snap of Joe smoking a cigar on a boat in Miami.

They became engaged in October 2017, with Sophie saying in an interview afterwards: "It's lovely to be engaged."

After Game of Thrones ended in May last year, Sophie reprised her role of Jean Grey in X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

She appeared in the revenge thriller Heavy, while she also starred in her husband's music videos for Sucker and What A Man Gotta Do.

She also has the lead role in Survive, a TV series about a woman who survives a plane crash but now must survive being on a snow-covered mountain with only one other survivor.

Let's have a look at the rest of the stars who made it to the final season of what has been the world's biggest TV show - much of it filmed in Northern Ireland - and see what they're doing in both their working and personal lives.

KIT HARINGTON

Kit Harington played the king of not knowing nothing, Jon Snow.

He was the bastard son of Ned Stark (Sean Bean), at least that's what everyone assumed until the truth came out and he was banished after he killed Daenerys Targaryen.

Kit (33) married co-star Rose Leslie, who played Ygritte, in 2018 and the Scot helped him during turmoil last year, when he checked himself into rehab due to emotional exhaustion.

The Englishman spent much of last year appearing at the Vaudeville Theatre in London in the first West End production of the play True West.

He voiced the character of Eret in How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World and recently just finished filming Eternals, the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. He plays Black Knight and reunites with Angelina Jolie and his former Game of Thrones brother Richard Madden in Eternals.

EMILIA CLARKE

With her white blonde tresses and beloved dragons, the English star played one of GoT's most popular characters, Daenerys Targaryen.

In 2019, Emilia played Kate in Last Christmas. Clarke (33) also appeared in Above Suspicion, a movie about the first FBI agent convicted of murder.

Recently she starred in the latest adaptation of Anton Chekhov's play The Seagull in London's West End but the run was halted in March due to Covid.

She is also set to play the English poet Elizabeth Barrett in the film Let Me Count the Ways, with The Wife director Björn Runge.

Emilia dated Seth McFarlane several years ago, and then another actor, Charlie McDowell - who is currently linked to Lily Collins. She was pictured earlier this year looking cosy with a mystery man and her relationship status is unclear.

PETER DINKLAGE

Peter Dinklage played the wisecracking and resourceful Tyrion Lannister.

The role won him a record four Emmy awards and he's also reputedly the highest paid actor in television.

Peter (51) recently starred in and produced a film about the final days of Fantasy Island actor Herve Villechaize. He's also voiced characters in sequels to Angry Birds and The Croods.

Dinklage has three confirmed projects in various forms of production. He'll appear with an all-star cast in I Care A Lot, a movie set for a release this year.

His other project is The Thicket, a movie adaptation of Joe R. Lansdale's crime novel. In 2005, Dinklage married Erica Schmidt, a theatre director, and they have two children, aged nine and three.

MAISIE WILLIAMS

Maisie Williams played Arya Stark, the girl who would have some of the most debated moments of the final Game of Thrones season.

Maisie (23) made her X-Men debut earlier this year when The New Mutants hit cinemas. She plays Rahne Sinclair, aka Wolfsbane, a Scottish mutant who shape-shifts into a wolf. She is currently producing a short film with Lowri Roberts and has two projects in the post-production phase, Two Weeks to Live, and The Owners.

Williams shares a flat with friend and fellow actor Bill Milner, with whom she works at Daisy Chain Productions. According to reports, she's dating Reuben Selby, a designer who also runs the modelling agency Contact and helped design her dress for last year's Emmys.

LENA HEADEY

Lena Headey as Cersei played one half of the infamous Lannister twins. The woman who would be queen inherited her father's ruthlessness when combating enemies. Cersei hated everyone and everything, except her brother Jaime and her children and was seen eventually dying alongside her sibling.

Last year Lena (46) had a supporting role in the critically acclaimed movie Fighting with My Family. She starred opposite Nick Frost, Florence Pugh and Vince Vaughn.

Headey lends her voice to Kevin Smith's animated Masters of the Universe series. The cast also includes Sarah Michelle Gellar, Chris Wood, and Mark Hamill. She also snagged the lead for a Showtime pilot for a series called Rita. She plays an unconventional mother in this dramedy.

Lena married musician Peter Loughran in May 2007 and their son was born in 2010, with the couple divorcing in 2013. The Englishwoman gave birth in 2015 to her second child, a daughter named Teddy, with director Dan Cadan but they had separated by June 2019.

NIKOLAJ COSTER-WALDAU

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's Jaime Lannister tried to live an honourable life as the Kingslayer.

The Danish actor, who is married and a father of two, turned 50 last Monday.

He filmed Notat by Ole Christian Madsen, which is based on events surrounding the 2015 Copenhagen shootings and it was released late last year.

He also completed three other films, Suicide Tourist, Domino and The Silencing while he also shot a pilot for an FX series called Gone Hollywood.

This year he was due to portray Macbeth at the Geffen Playhouse in his current home of Los Angeles, but that has been halted due to Covid.

GWENDOLINE CHRISTIE

Gwendoline Christie played Brienne of Tarth. The 41-year-old also played Phasma in the latest Star Wars trilogy.

She joined Nicole Kidman and Elisabeth Moss in the disappointing follow-up to Top of the Lake, China Girl and had a role in The Personal History of David Copperfield. The 6 ft 3 in star has been in a relationship with fashion designer Giles Deacon since early 2013.

ISAAC HEMPSTEAD-WRIGHT

Isaac Hempstead Wright played Bran Stark.

The 21-year-old English actor has two upcoming projects. The first is a movie called The Blue Mauritius, and the second is a film called Voyagers. Voyagers is a science fiction film that depicts the story of 30 people sent into space to search for a new home. The film has an all-star cast that includes Colin Farrell and Lily-Rose Depp.

LIAM CUNNINGHAM

Dubliner Liam (59) joined the main cast in 2012 portraying former smuggler Davos Seaworth. The father-of-three has been announced this year to voice Man-At-Arms in the Netflix animated series Masters of the Universe: Revelation.
