Game of Thrones Fact Files: Sansa Stark

Conleth Hill is unrecognisable as Lord Varys

Turner told Buzzfeed she's interested in seeing some Game of Thrones prequel series, which would explain how all the warring houses formed and why they all hate each other so much. But, if we're being honest, we've got a soft spot for Sophie as a redhead, because #GoT. "That's who Sansa is going to be in the future", he says.

In the end, it's Lysa who goes through the Moon Door, Sansa watching as Littlefinger convinces his "beloved" not to hurt Sansa before pushing her to her death. Or will she stand for herself, and probably perish along with Littlefinger?

But even though she is now no longer a captive, she is more vulnerable more than ever. Major characters have died every season, and there's no reason to think that will change in Season 7.

What is Game of Thrones planning with Sansa Stark?

At the end of last season, Daenerys' (Emilia Clarke) dragons and her enormous army were finally on the way to Westeros, where Cersei (Lena Headey) has now become Queen after the death of her children.

Here's Sophie rocking her red hair five years ago.

As such, Sansa's anguished look implies that the fact that Jon appears to accept the position of King of the North with absolutely no reference to Sansa, whose efforts (with her writing a letter in secret to Lord Baelish to ask for his support in the form of extra troops) won the Battle of the Bastards, must have bred some resentment. "It's got a huge amount of visibility". "I think [Sansa] might be a little more unlikeable, because she finally has this power, and she doesn't really know what to do with it, and she really falters". "Normally you play a character for a month or so", she told W Magazine, "and then you are done with it, but to be able to flesh out a character for over eight or so years has been really fantastic". Everything that happens to her affects me. The youngest Stark is at her best when paired with an equally captivating character, and the show squandered that when it took her so far from King's Landing and Winterfell.

The first episode of season 7, titled Dragonstone, will premiere on Sunday in the US.

"I'd be very cautious in what I said, but obviously, I think it's been very clear that it's all sort of coming to a head now". Six months ago, she said that "it's really starting to feel like there's a dark side to [Sansa]", which, at the time, we noted, made a lot of sense. And the reality of this impending war that's coming is very, very real for her for many reasons.
