HBO’s Game of Thrones returns on April 24, and fans are eager to see what will become of its beloved characters. Fans are rightfully worried about the fate of Jon Snow, but none should be concerned about the resilient Sansa Stark, according to the actress who plays her.
"I mean this season is a really, really big one for Sansa," Sophie Turner told Entertainment Weekly during its SAG Awards party on Friday. "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."
That's good news for Stark's fans who've watched her rocky road throughout the past five seasons. At the end of Season 5, Stark returned to her native Winterfell and learned from Theon that she still has surviving relatives. She then escaped Winterfell by jumping over a gigantic wall. Hopefully, Season 6 is kinder to Stark. Turner thinks it will be.
"You can only suffer so much before she finally gets her, the respect that she deserves," the actress said.
As anticipation mounts, the Game of Thrones cast wants fans to get prepared for the upcoming twists and turns.
"I mean this season there's like so many shocks, it's massive," Turner said. "It's the biggest season yet."
