10 Things You Didn't Know About Sophie Turner
Sansa Stark has both a non-traumatic life away from Westeros, AND a direwolf.
Sophie Turner is growing into Game of Thrones, with Sansa Stark playing a major role in Season 5 as the show continues to entertain, shock, and disturb millions of fans around the globe. The 19-year-old and her character had taken some criticism during the first few seasons, but Turner is developing into a major player in HBO's hit fantasy series, with Sansa finally starting to play the game in a bid to continually survive horrendous ordeals with two of the most evil men in the Seven Kingdoms. Everything was going swimmingly for young Sansa as she was betrothed to the dashing king-to-be Joffrey... Until he commanded Ilyn Payne to remove her father's head rather than show a glimmer of mercy. Since then, Sansa's life has been one misery after another, being shown horrific sights, witnessing traumatic events, and also suffering some harrowing ordeals herself. Turner is certainly stepping up into the role with Sansa's increased prominence, and has hauled her character to the point of fans wanting Sansa to survive until the end of the show, whenever that may be. However, popularity is usually a death sentence with George R.R. Martin wielding the pen that decides the usually-grisly futures of every fan favourite. But while we've seen Turner in fictional medieval times, what is she like back in the real world, away from blood-thirsty kings and psychotic arranged marriages? Here are 10 things you might not know about Sophie Turner.
