Sophie Turner Teases Sansa’s Role In ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6

It’s safe to say that Sansa Stark has been through quite a lot in the previous seasons of Game of Thrones. From losing her father to marrying Ramsay Bolton, it seems as if the character is constantly in a bad spot, mostly due to a lot of her questionable decisions. Don’t worry though, because things are about to get a lot better for her, according to Sophie Turner herself. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly at the SAG Awards Party, the actress had to say the following about the upcoming season:

I mean this season is a really, really big one for Sansa, it’s probably her best season yet. It’s her really coming into her own. She, this season, really commands the respect that she deserves and she grabs hold of it and she runs with it and it’s really good.

Last time we saw the character was in the season five finale, where she managed to escape from Ramsay with the help of Reek. Currently, she’s much more underdeveloped than her counterpart in the book series, but Turner promises that fans are finally going to see a particular storyline that they’ve been waiting for years in this season:

It was amazing because the past five seasons, it feels like it’s been building up and up to that, you can only suffer so much before she finally gets her, the respect that she deserves. I mean this season there’s like so many shocks, it’s massive, it’s the biggest season yet. And just like in terms of character development, so many people’s storylines, I’m so excited for. I’m so excited to see Alfie’s one this season. It’s going to be good.
