Sophie Turner is reflecting on her time as Sansa Stark on “Game of Thrones,” and she’s got some insight into the future of her character.
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Turner starts to open up about where things all began for the eldest Stark daughter, the series beginning as Sansa is about to enter into a “momentous relationship.”
“Honestly, I was going through the same thing, but that ‘momentous relationship’ was between myself and the television and film industry,” she says. But it was working with acting legends like Peter Dinklage and Lena Headey that helped her “find [her] footing.”
So what does Turner see in the future for Sansa, the new Queen of the North? The star reveals a noble and relatively drama-free life for her fictional counterpart. “No wars, no battles,” Turner says.
She continues, “I see her leading until she’s very old.” And she’ll probably be leading solo at that. “I don’t see her getting married or having children,” Turner says.
Turner imagines all of that as well as a very lowkey end to Sansa’s rule. She doesn’t believe that Sansa will get herself into the same tiffs that the rulers of Westeros have seen in the past. “She’d die of old age, very happy,” Turner explains.
Don’t imagine any burning cities or crumbling buildings for Queen Sansa Stark. She’s one “Game of Thrones” character who would probably choose her battles wisely.
