Sophie Turner Shares Season 8 ‘Game of Thrones’ Deets…& They Might Mean Trouble for Cersei
As fun as exploring Game of Thrones fan theories may be, when a star of the show drops a hint about what’s to come in season eight, we can’t help but listen intently. The latest GoT star to spill a little tea? Sophie Turner.
The engaged actress chatted about the final season of the show in a recent interview with 1883 magazine, saying it’s “bloodier than ever. It’s full of betrayal, full of war, full of danger. That’s all I can say without giving too much away.” Um, the Red Wedding wasn’t bloody enough? Noted.
Turner went on to speak about her character, Sansa Stark’s, progression now that she’s no longer under Littlefinger’s (Aidan Gillen) thumb (get it?).
“This is the first year where she really is on her own,” she shared. “She’s not being led by anyone, it is just her and her alone. This is like the big season for her to be honest, it is the season she’s been waiting for.” Preach, Sophie. Preach.
So what can we expect when Turner and friends return to the small screen for season eight? The GoT star says, “This is the time when [Sansa] kind of has to step up and take charge. You can expect to see quite a powerful, quite defiant, protective person.”
Powerful enough to end Cersei’s (Lena Headey) reign of terror? We sure hope so.
