Beautiful ‘Game Of Thrones’ Starlet Sophie Turner, Season 5 “Challenging And Pretty Massive,” Winter Is Coming, Highlight Hollywood News
Sophie Turner went to her first ever IMAX screening on Thursday night, seeing “Game of Thrones” alongside fans and the producers of her HBO show. “It’s very exciting,” the starlet said just before sitting down to watch “GoT” Season 4, Episodes 9 and 10, alongside Executive Producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. “I’m very privileged to be able to see it in IMAX and actually see anything in IMAX because I’ve never seen anything in IMAX. So it’s good that ‘Game of Thrones’ is the first thing!”
This week, “Thrones” became the first television show to make the leap to the IMAX screen, bringing not only the two episodes (“The Watchers on The Wall” and “The Children”), but the new “GoT” Season 5 trailer, which featured a couple of intriguing glimpses of Sansa Stark.
In one sneak peek snippet, Aidan Gillen’s Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish was counseling Sansa (the daughter of his one true love the late Catelyn Stark) to “Avenge them!”
Before the screening, Sophie told Access that there were some tough acting moments in Season 5.
“This [season] definitely tested me quite a bit because it is a challenging season,” Sophie said. “[Sansa] has changed [in] that she approaches every situation differently, which was just kind of like different to switch into that mentality.”
Sansa journeyed to The Eyrie with Littlefinger in Season 4, following the murder of King Joffrey. Filming those scenes with Aidan was a change of pace for the actress who spent the first three seasons with large groups in “Thrones'” Winterfell and King’s Landing.
“It’s so nice, actually. It was funny because from Season 1 upwards, right to the beginning of Season 4, I was just like surrounded by a ton of actors, which was incredible, and I loved it, and then suddenly going to literally just like me and Aidan was so intense, but it was just a change and it was so nice,” Sophie said. “And Aidan’s so talented. It felt like we were the gruesome twosome.”
And speaking again on the upcoming season.
“Season 5 is pretty massive. … The storylines are just insane this season. Arya’s storyline is incredible. I’m obsessed with my storyline. And it’s so action packed as well this season,” she said. “If you thought it couldn’t get any more action packed, it does, and then… the storylines crossover and there’s some really unexpected things going on.”
“Game of Thrones” Season 5 premieres April 12 on HBO.
