‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Sophie Turner Hints Of Sansa Stark Becoming Less Naive, More Manipulative, Highlight Hollywood News

In a recent interview beautiful teenager and star of “Game of Thrones,” Sophie Turner explained why fans are connected with Sansa, whether its by loving or hating on the eldest Stark girl.  “You get people who either love Sansa or hate her, and the reason is because she is so similar to them, and so relatable. Some people don’t accept their own faults and see their own faults in Sansa,” Turner said.

So, at long last, the long-suffering Sansa Stark gets a backbone, and it’s just in a nick of time!
Turner admits season four shows the evolution of Sansa and how her experiences have molded her to become less naïve and more manipulative.
“So my character, there’s a big evolution for her this season. Like, a big one coming up. I’m so excited. She begins to manipulate,” Turner told VF, adding Sansa begins to get power over her life.
Turner doesn’t give us any specific details about how her character changes. However, the latest “Game of Thrones” teaser shows Sansa speaking during Petyr Baelish’s trial, most relating to her Aunt Lysa death. It could be the change she is referring to, since she hasn’t been keeping up with the “Game of Thrones” story in the novels.
“I have read my chapters, but no, I haven’t read the books,” Turner enthused.  “I will probably read them once the show is over and I can actually see where the show is supposed to go, because the show is kind of just an adaption, so it will probably just drift further and further apart, maybe.”
“Game of Thrones” airs a new episode this Sunday at 9 p.m. HBO has released new teaser photos of the upcoming episode titled “The Mountain and the Viper.” Tyrion Lannister has found his Champion in Oberyn Martell, who will fight for his life against the man who killed his beloved sister.
