The actress who started her career as Sansa Stark in 2011, must now say goodbye to Game of Thrones, which has helped propel Sophie Turner into a massive Hollywood star. But we’ve got six more extra-long, action-packed episodes left in Game of Thrones that will have to tie up a shit-ton of loose ends. Turner warns fans that not everyone will be happy on how the epic fantasy TV series ends.
Lannister, Targaryen, Baratheon, Stark, Tyrell they’re all just spokes on a wheel. This ones on top, then that ones on top and on and on it spins crushing those on the ground. But we want to know how and who will end up sitting on top of the Iron Throne by the end of Season 8 of Game of Thrones. Sophie reveals that helping make GoT into one of the greatest TV shows of all-time has been extraordinarily satisfying.
“A lot of tears. I think, you know, as an actor it was really satisfying — I think for everyone, everyone’s storylines — to be able to act out the way that it all ends. It was really satisfying for us,” Turner told IGN.
However, she also said that many fans will be disappointed on how the show ends.
“Who knows if it will be satisfying for the fans,” Turner said. “I think a lot of fans will be disappointed and a lot of fans will be over the moon, I think. I think it will be really interesting to see people’s reactions, but for me reading the script it was just like heartbreaking to read at the very final page of the script it just says, ‘End of Game of Thrones.’ That was really emotional.”
Turner does say that Sansa does evolve in the final season and “takes ownership over who she is and what she stands for.” She goes so far as to say Sansa “is the most self-assured character in the show.” Maybe she learned some important lessons from Littlefinger?

Earlier this year, Turner teased that the final Game of Thrones season will feature “more death than all the years before.”
“I can tell you that there’s definitely a coming together of people,” Turner said in an interview over the summer. “Everyone is coming together to fight the impending doom. There’s a lot of tension between these little groups, battling for what they think is right. It’s Game of Thrones, so it’s going to be bloodier and more death and more emotionally torturous than all the years before.”
Season 8 of Game of Thrones is now slated to arrive sometime in the summer of 2019.
“The final season is taking a long time because it’s the biggest thing we’ve ever done. Even though it’s six episodes, it took us… it was nearly a full year in Belfast either prepping it or actually shooting it,” showrunner David Benioff said. “I think it’s quite extraordinary what the crew and these actors have created. And I think when people see it, they’re going to understand why it took so long.”
