Game of Thrones fans know Sophie Turner as the iconic Sansa Stark. Before Season 8 premiered, many of us were worried about her fate. After all, this show does have a reputation for killing characters we love.
SPOILER ALERT: Sansa lives. Not only does she live, but she becomes Queen in the North.
In an interview with The Wrap, Sophie spoke about her feelings on Sansa’s ending, saying, “I think it is a better thing for Sansa. The one thing she always strived for throughout the whole series was to be back home — home, home, home. She wanted to be at Winterfell with her family, with the North. It’s where she felt most comfortable, most safe.”
Many fans of the show wanted to see Sansa ruling in some capacity, but Sophie didn’t think she would be the best fit for the Iron Throne.
She told The Wrap, “[Sansa] is an incredibly capable ruler, absolutely. But I think Bran would be a much better ruler of the Six Kingdoms.”
But lots of fans seemed ecstatic about where she ended up:
the one thing i’m happy with in the game of thrones finale is that sansa got the ending she truly deserved. a legendary character with the absolute most growth. we stan. long live the queen of the north.
