The actress thinks it would be "impossible" for Sansa to exist in the fantasy world without the actions of her enemies rubbing off on her.
Finally making its return in just over a week, critically-acclaimed HBO fantasy series 'Game of Thrones' will be on everyone's lips for the next couple of months, as it undoubtedly delivers some action-packed episodes, full of twists and turns as the series nears its grand finale and eighth, conclusive season.
Sophie Turner has held the role of Sansa Stark for six full seasons to-date
For six seasons to-date, we've seen those working on the show deal out some meaty storylines, following the plot woven throughout the original but incomplete novel series 'A Song of Ice & Fire' by George R R Martin at times, but deviating from his plot on a number of occasions to serve the viewers who have read the books something fresh and unique. Now, all the scenes we'll see will be new ones, as the show has leapt ahead of where Martin's got up to with his book series, so there will be surprises with every episode.

She learnt some crazy things about sex as a young teenager.
Sophie Turner was just 13-years-old when she started shooting 'Game of Thrones', and it turned out to be quite the educational experience for her. She has recently confessed that she was oblivious to the mechanics of half the sexual references within the script.

The actress, who plays Sansa Stark in the HBO fantasy franchise, is now 21-years-old and probably well clued up by now in terms of sex education - but that wasn't the situation when she first landed the role. She was as innocent as innocent could be!

'Game of Thrones' star Turner said something unintelligible in a viral video, that some took to mean the 'n-word'.
‘Game of Thrones’ star Sophie Turner has denied using a racial slur in an Instagram video that has gone viral, claiming that she was misheard.
The 21 year old English actress sparked a huge backlash on social media after many believed she used the ‘n-word’ in a clip shared by her boyfriend Joe Jonas that has since been deleted after it went up earlier this week. It showed fitness guru Brendan Fallis introducing the star and Jonas, before she allegedly used the offensive term (which is unintelligible in the video itself and up for debate) having said “what’s up”.

The drama’s seventh season is expected to premiere in summer 2017.
The end really is sight for ‘Game of Thrones’ fans. The epic fantasy drama will be coming to an end after its eight season, HBO programming president Casey Bloys has confirmed. But while the news may sound bad for fans of the show, there's still hope for a potential spin off.
‘Game of Thrones’ will be coming to an end after its eighth season.
Speaking on Saturday (July 30) at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour, Bloys confirmed that season eight would be the show’s last. "Yes, I think [the showrunners, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff] have a very specific plan about the number of seasons they want to do," he said.

This might be the new height of text-based warfare.
The last thing anyone wants to read is ‘Game Of Thrones’ spoilers, but now plot reveals might be even harder for some viewers to avoid. A new app called ‘Spoiled’ allows users to get revenge on their enemies in the worst way possible, by anonymously texting them ‘Game of Thrones’ spoilers.
Is texting ‘Game of Thrones’ spoilers the ultimate evil deed?
After paying a one-off fee of $0.99 (roughly £0.67) all you need to do is type in your ‘victim’s’ phone number and sit back and watch them have the entire season spoiled episode by episode. The app promises to ‘anonymously and ruthlessly text spoilers to your unsuspecting friends after each new episode airs.’
Things are really getting serious now.
Ok, I didn’t want to do this, but we have to. Let’s talk Game of Thrones. Particularly after last week’s awful, awful, bad thing that the writers put in unnecessarily, because why not have another rape scene disempowering a central character, in a show that’s supposedly all about powerful women. Oh yeah, if you haven’t figured it out already, SPOILERS. All of the spoilers.
George R. R. Martin with the Game of Thrones cast in 2013. Let's play a game of "count the survivors".
So, a week after we had to watch the gruesome, cringe-inducing scene between Ramsay and Sansa, we find lady Stark (soon to be Bolton) in even more dire straits, if that’s even possible. Weeks after she was promised to Ramsay – in an attempt by herself and Littlefinger to win back some power and avenge her family – we find Sansa locked in her room when Reek brings her food. Bruises cover her arms. She begs the man who was once Theon to help her, makes him promise to light a candle in the tower so that someone will come to save her.

Sophie Turner from 'Game of Thrones' and '3 Days to Kill' star Hailee Steinfeld are spotted leaving the Mark Hotel in New York ahead of their appearance at the 2015 Met Gala. This year's theme was China: Through The Looking Glass and Turner looked amazing in a low cut silver gown, while Steinfeld went for a shimmering red number.
'Game of Thrones' is infamous for killing off its characters, so without paying attention to the books (as the show seems to be doing) we looked at who we think is destined to go the way of dodo.
Prince Doran - We've only seen Prince Doran Martell (Alexander Siddig) in one episode so far, he's already made a strong impression on everyone. The elder brother of fan favourite Oberyn, who came to a horribly messy end in the last season, Prince Doran is trying his best to keep the peace in Dorne, and stop his people from seeking revenge against the Lannisters. It stands to reason, however, that his death would make give them a great reason to rise up and start a war.

Brienne/Podrick - Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) and Podrick (Daniel Portman) have been giving us a good dose of the "two buddies traveling", following in the footsteps of Tyrion (Peter Dinklage ) and Bronn (Jerome Flynn), and Arya (Maisie Williams) and the Hound (Rory McCann). The problem is, that each of those has come to a rather disastrous ending at some point, and the death of Brienne or Podrick seems likely - especially with what they seem to be getting themselves into.
The actress plays Sansa Stark in the HBO series.
Sophie Turner has said she learnt all she needed to know about sex from working on the raunchy HBO epic ‘Game of Thrones’. The 19-year-old actress has admitted that by the age of 16 she had to tell her mother the sex talk wasn't really necessary, as she already knew it all from her role in the series.

Speaking about the often cringeworthy moment when mothers tell their daughters about the birds and the bees, Sophie said she told her mum, “This isn’t necessary, I know everything. I know every single thing that a person can do — and more. The show is very inventive.”
Rose Byrne will reprise her role as CIA Agent Moira MacTaggert in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'.
Rose Byrne will be rejoining the X-Men cast in the 2016 instalment of the Marvel franchise, X-Men: Apocalypse. The 35-year-old Australian actor played CIA Agent Moira MacTaggert in the 2011 film X-Men: First Class as a potential love interest of James McAvoy's Professor Charles Xaviar. Apocalypse writer, Simon Kinberg, in a recent interview has refused to divulge how Byrne's character will return but promises there's a "rich relationship" with Prof. X to "mine" into.

Director Bryan Singer announced the addition of Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan and Alexandra Shipp to the cast on Thursday.
Some breaking superhero movie news: director Bryan Singer has unveiled casting details for three characters in his forthcoming project X-Men: Apocalypse. Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan and Alexandra Shipp will all play younger versions of three of the mythology’s most popular characters.
Singer, who is already attached for the eighth instalment in the popular movie franchise, tweeted the casting announcements on Thursday. The biggest news is the inclusion of Turner, famous for her portrayal of the tormented Sansa Stark on ‘Game Of Thrones’, who will be playing a younger version of the ultra-telepathic Jean Grey. That makes her the second ‘Game of Thrones’ star to also feature in the franchise – Peter Dinklage played the baddie in last year’s Days of Future Past.

The Game of Thrones team has announced nine new actors that will join the cast in season 5. Now, you're probably not going to recognise many of the names - but anyway.

Not that we didn't see it coming, but... what?
The episodes of Game of Thrones, filled with shocking deaths and stunning plot twists are usually the ones that get the most press, but it is often episodes like last night’s Mockingbird – slow, precise and dialogue heavy – that really serve to move the plot forward and give us an insight into the characters . If you haven’t guessed it already, this is your spoiler warning for Season 4 Episode 7 – Mockingbird.
Game of Thrones - where noone is ever safe.
The episode opens with another impassioned chat between Jaime and Tyrion – a broken Tyrion, who is just about to have his fate sealed in a trial by combat. Unfortunately, Tyrion’s only friend at King’s Landing – Jaime – is still hopeless with any kind of weapon and facing Gregor Clegane (aptly nicknamed “The Mountain That Rides”) is completely out of the question. Of course, there’s always Bronn. The wisecracking sidekick is only a sellsword, but he has developed a sort-of friendship with Tyrion over the past two seasons, surely he’d agree to be the Imp’s champion, right? Wrong. Bronn has been bought off with a wife and castles and the realization stabs us through the hearts almost as much as it does Tyrion.
Before talking about this week’s Game of Thrones, we should probably dish out the warnings with a heavy hand. Beware of ALL THE SPOILERS for Season 4 Episode 3 Breaker of Chains. Also, this should go without saying, but all the trigger warnings: sexual assault, violence and various very graphic murders. Now that that’s out of the way…
Looks like Tyrion is about to reach the end of the line. We're betting on a plot twist though...
This episode sets up like a classic whodunit. With Joffrey dead (good riddance, although Jack Gleeson’s acting will be missed), Lord Tywin is trying to prepare little Tommen for his new role as king. The boy wants to be a “good king”, which would be admirable, if it weren’t for the fact that he’s like 12. Cercei, meanwhile, is only concerned with who killed her son. Well, she’s also concerned with getting revenge on Tyrion, whom she thinks is the killer, finding Sansa (who escaped during the commotion caused by Joff’s death) and just a bit of incest next to Joff’s body, but that’s just standard Westeros fare at this point.

The ladies of Game of Thrones are getting things done this season.
Let’s talk Game of Thrones. After the second Season 4 trailer, aptly titled Vengeance, was released, the internet – to put it mildly – went nuts. Because no one will be able to stop talking about GoT until April, let’s go into some details. Namely – what’s happening to the ladies in Thrones this season? The women on this show have been particularly disadvantaged from the start, presumably because the action is set in a magical, mystical equivalent of the middle ages. This season Cercei, Daenerys, Arya, Sansa and the rest of them won’t suffer any fools, by the looks of it.
Maisie Williams (Arya) - your favorite little sociopath wants revenge.
The trailer begins with Arya (Maisie Williams) saying “I can’t sleep until I say the names... the ones I’m going to kill.” You already know some serious vengeance is about to go down. Although in the trailer, we mostly see her wondering around aimlessly after the death of her mother and brother, so maybe our favorite little murderer isn’t ready to begin her reign of terror yet.
The 15-minute preview didn't give away any major details, but everything - from the plot to the sets - looks bigger and better than ever before.
Game of Thrones got a treat last week, with a rather unusual 15-minute promo of the upcoming fourth season. It featured some things we expected and few surprises (given that it was a promo), but it’s sure to spur on the Thrones speculation ahead of the series 4 premiere on April 6.
Fans might need to use a cast photo for reference when they count the survivors this season.
