'Game of Thrones' Season 6 Spoilers: Sophie Turner Wants The HBO Series To Kill Sansa Stark
While some "Game of Thrones" actors would like to see their characters survive until the end of the HBO series, Sophie Turner revealed that she wants the show to kill Sansa Stark.
"I don't want to survive," Turner told The Wall Street Journal when asked how she would like to wrap up her character's storyline. "And I want Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) on the throne."
When pressed why she wants to see her character get killed off, the 20-year-old actress said: "If you're on 'Game of Thrones' and you don't have a cool death scene, then what's the point? I think it would be really disappointing If I got to the end and I was just okay."
However, it seems that Sansa fans have nothing to worry about because Turner strongly suggested last month that her character won't die in the upcoming season.
In a pre-Oscars interview with E!'s Giuliana Rancic, Turner admitted that she scanned every script for season 6 to quickly find out whether Sansa is still alive at the end each episode.
"They kill all of us off, so I check at the end of every [script]," she said. "[While] I'm flicking through, I'm like death, death, death -- [but] I'm good for this season."
In fact, Turner said at the Entertainment Weekly's SAG Awards party in Los Angeles in January that season 6 is a "really, really big one" for Sansa.
"It's probably her best season yet," she said of her character. "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."
Writers Dan Weiss and Bryan Cogman also commended Turner performance in the upcoming season.
"Sophie really delivers this season," showrunner Weiss told Entertainment Weekly. "She's an extremely phenomenal actor, and this year she gets to go to places she's never gone."
Cogman added: "I'm very excited by where Sansa's storyline is going this season, and I think Sophie is doing the best work she's ever done in season 6."
"Game of Thrones" season 6 premieres on Sunday, April 24, at 9 p.m. on HBO.
