Just because HBO is working on a Game of Thrones prequel doesn’t mean Sophie Turner is interested in reprising her role as Sansa Stark.
In a recent interview with Sky News, the 23-year-old actress discussed the eighth (and final) season of GoT and revealed that she said “ta-ta” to her character…for good.
“I think it’s time to say goodbye to Sansa. I’m ready-ish, to say goodbye to her. I think my watch has ended. It’s been ten years of my life and the best ten years of my life by far,” she said.
In the series finale of Game of Thrones, Sansa separated from the Seven Kingdoms and became Queen in the North, while her brother, Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright), became King of Winterfell. Although it appears there’s more story to tell, Turner feels she left her character in a good place.
