Sophie Turner scared of Game of Thrones ending

"You saw that exchange, that look between her and Littlefinger".

"We've had the same struggles in terms of dealing with body image and puberty and growing up in the public eye", she told the magazine.

Turner has been breathing life into the character, Sansa Stark, Lady of Winterfell, in the hit HBO series for the last eight years. Now, Sansa's reunited with their half-brother Jon Snow at Winterfell, and given Arya's closeness to Jon, it makes sense that she'd seek him out. Luckily, via Ser Dontos-a kindly former knight cum fool-Sansa is spirited out of King's Landing as the murder goes down where Littlefinger awaits. Before, she was a victim in many ways. Initially, it was fun to watch Arya interact with Jaqen again, but as soon as she was struck blind and spent most of her time with the Waif, Arya's screen time lost its luster. This follows the big move she made by the end of season 6, which led her to be the current occupant of the Iron Throne.

She doesn't necessarily feel stripped of the title she deserves, but she definitely feels underappreciated.


"[Jon Snow] has kind of shown that he appreciates her and will listen to her a lot more, but there is a little bit of frustration and hurt there - hurt that he didn't say anything or hail her as Queen of the North", she explained. So far, fans will have to wait for "Game of Thrones" season 7.

Despite playing Sansa Stark, who is becoming an increasingly strong female character, and X-Men's Jean Grey, Turner isn't opposed to playing less grounded characters in the future.

Harington speaks glowingly of the young girl he watched develop into a woman over the course of the show: "It's insane going from having this 13-year-old girl that you feel protective over, who's sweet and innocent and keeps running up to you and telling you not to smoke, and then watching (her) grow over the years into a fascinating, intelligent, incredibly amusing and witty young woman". Turner is set on making bold choices when it comes to her acting career. I'm really not looking forward to it. I don't know. I don't know if Sansa will be included in the spinoffs, but I believe that it probably wouldn't be.
