Game of Thrones: Sophie Turner on ‘that look’ between Sansa and Littlefinger
And the cast reflects on the series coming to an end
In the world of Game of Thrones, master manipulator Littlefinger believes chaos is a ladder — one he intends to climb to power. Among the burning questions raised during the season 6 finale are whether there’s room on that ladder for Sansa Stark, and what she’d be willing to sacrifice to make the ascent.
During a cast interview with EW at Comic-Con, actress Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa, gave some insight into the loaded look exchanged by her and Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) in the episode. She also hinted at what it could mean for Sansa’s (alleged) bastard brother, Jon Snow.
“There’s always a bit of sibling rivalry between Sansa and Jon; there has been since they were very young,” Turner said. “I think that look between Sansa and Littlefinger is her kind of acknowledging that his points are somewhat legitimate, and she’s kind of intrigued as to that pretty little picture that he painted of him on the Iron Throne and her by his side.”
Turner continued, “She’s kind of thinking, ‘Well, he’ll give me the credit that I deserve.’ But it’s very interesting to see where her loyalties will now lie — whether she’ll go with Jon or Littlefinger.”
Speaking at the Thrones Comic-Con panel later on Friday, Turner added more about Sansa’s current state. “I honestly have no idea if she’s going to become a real leader and do the right thing and be a true Stark or if she’s going to go completely sadistic,” she said. “Who knows, we’ll soon find out, watch season 7.”
