“SHE’S THE KEY TO THE NORTH!”

So­phie Turner is Sansa

Where do we find Sansa at the be­gin­ning of sea­son five?

At the end of sea­son four we saw her just about to go on a tour of the Vale so that’s where she’s pop­ping off to. There’s more of an emo­tional jour­ney to it as well – she’s re­ally es­cap­ing from her Stark and Tully roots and she’s just be­com­ing her own house, her own per­son. She’s also form­ing a lit­tle duo with Littlefin­ger [ Ai­dan Gillen]. For the first time in her life she has a lit­tle bit of power over some­one – he’s not go­ing to want to kill her, is he? She’s the key to the North. That’s quite a turn­around for the girl who was al­ways be­ing ma­nip­u­lated by ev­ery­one else…

The past four sea­sons she’s al­ways been very down in the dumps, suf­fer­ing at the hands of ev­ery­one else. I mean she al­ways ma­nip­u­lated her­self too, but it was very much wear­ing the façade of this vul­ner­a­ble young girl. Now she can pull strings out in the open. She’s like a force to be reck­oned with. How did you feel when you first saw Sansa ver­sion two, with the dark hair and the dark out­fit?

It was amaz­ing. Pre­vi­ously she was just so down­trod­den all the time. Then I fi­nally put on this cos­tume – and it fits her per­fectly, she’s made it her­self and she’s proud to be wear­ing it. All in all it gave me a lot of power. What can you tell us about the new sea­son of Game Of Thrones?

Hmm. I have to be care­ful! But Sansa sees a few familiar faces. There’s a big shock and she goes through a lot of hard­ships this sea­son. But she ap­proaches them very dif­fer­ently be­cause of this whole new men­tal­ity that she has.
